M3-ID LCD Controller

Post by Pr02type » Thu Nov 29, 2018 8:14 pm

Hello, my first post here.
Is the LCD interface available on the main website compatible with the newer M3-ID?
Or is it only available for the M2?

If it's not compatible, are there and other options for LCD and SD card modification?

Don't have M3 but it uses Rambo 1.3 board which has LCD support. Its probably not enabled in the firmware. Makergear officially doesn't support it but it might work. You will need to enable LCD support on the firmware and upload it to m3.

This is the line you need to uncomment:
I pulled this from M2 firmware
#define REPRAP_DISCOUNT_FULL_GRAPHIC_SMART_CONTROLLER


Again I don't have an M3 so this was never tested.
