The [http://arduino.cc Arduino] is the heart of the electronics. It contains an AVR Processor, a USB connector, and I/O pins. The Arduino comes with [[grbl]] already installed on board. grbl reads g-code that is sent over USB and translates it into movements for the stepper motors on the ShapeOKO. The particular version of grbl on the Arduino also comes pre-configured for the ShapeOKO, and should not require any tweaking to operate.
