Getting Started

Thank you for your purchase of a Cohesion3D Motion Controller Upgrade! 

Circuit Boards are sensitive to electrostatic shock, please ground yourself before handling and observe all proper practices. 

 

All documentation about the Cohesion3D ReMix and Mini boards, including pinout diagrams, mechanical drawings, and pinout diagrams, can be found on our Doumentation site here: https://cohesion3d.freshdesk.com/support/solutions

 

Pay close attention to proper orientation of modules and connectors.  Do not plug a motor driver or power connectors in backwards, either of these things can damage the board and possibly your machine.
