Connect two (or multiple) Smoothieboards

Hi all,

I am currently developing a platform with up to 10 stepper motors and additional functions, such as fans, LEDs, heater, etc; hence I am looking for a board to operate the system. Since one Smoothieboard is limited to a specific number of stepper motors, I was just wondering if you could utilise two (or more) Smoothieboards to operate the system. Does anyone has experience with the connection and usage of two Smoothieboards? For switching between two or more boards, a Python workflow engine could be integrated.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Sebastian
