I am interested in building a CNC PCB plotter and I was wondering if it is possible to use an EK-TM4C1294XL for this purpose. I have seen a similar project using a Raspberry Pi Pico (https://www.pcbway.com/project/shareproject/Raspberry_Pi_Pico_Based_CNC_PCB_Plotter_ec484384.html), but I would prefer to avoid purchasing a Raspberry Pi Pico if I can use the EK-TM4C1294XL instead. I would greatly appreciate any information on whether this is possible and any tips or resources that may be helpful. Thank you in advance for your assistance

You can use 'anything' to drive a CNC but why you'd want to use something that isn't already common place (in that particular form) is beyond understanding. You're talking about 're-inventing the wheel' when there are multiple working examples using other devices already in existence.

I just like challenging myself. Thought it'll be a pretty fun yet challenging project.
