Makergear M2 Dual with LCD - Experimental FW

Post by Progwhiz » Wed Sep 09, 2015 2:35 pm

Hi All,

I did some tinkering with the last working Dual and LCD firmware and merged with the more stable MG Dual fw. It seems to behave well and even with S3D. I'm attaching the hex file for your easy upload.

Regards

This is a little worrying with just the .hex ... can you attach the Arduino sketch here, or somewhere like Google Drive / Dropbox?

Hi

I am attaching my final version as it seems to have resolved all the issues I didnt like such as:

1) Simplify3d connection issues
2) Jerking
3) Axis drifting
4) Ability to reset SD card manually
5) Correct premature timeout to status screen
6) Navigate through menu items one click only required

I will post a reprap lcd version later which corrects the ability of one click turn per menu item.

Do you have the sketch available? I would rather upload via arduino and be able to tweak it for the extras on my machine.

Thanks!

Hey mr. Progwhiz, any more firmware updates worth sharing on your end for Dual with LCD? And could you tell me which LCD your previous reworks were for... Viki 1, Viki 2, or Geeetech? Much love :D

Can you share the source? I'd like to look through your changes and merge them with mine if possible. Thanks.
