After a few weeks of using the original controller board along with k40 whisperer I’m starting to think a board upgrade and more powerful software might make sense. I keep hearing about Cohesion 3D, smoothie, gerbel, etc and am a bit overwhelmed. I realize there are direct board replacements and different software/firmware that can be used on them. I’m hoping to find a link to a good thread or comparison site that breaks down all of the upgrade options with pros, cons, specs, etc that can help me understand what the best upgrade paths would be.
Obviously cost is a concern and simplicity is also a concern. A drop in would be preferred butnid also consider something that might require a bit more tinkering.
