Atom's MPCNC build

Hello everybody,

I have started my build, I’m printing parts now and just got this:

creality v2.2 board. It has 5 outputs so I’m hoping to be able to use it with duel endstops and save me the $120 needed for the SKR PRO. what do you all think? Will it work? Any special considerations I should know about?

Edit: I forgot to mention that it does have a bootloader already installed… though it appears to be missing a heatsink. Still hard to beat free :slight_smile:

Thanks
-Atom

Some of the creality boards do not have the fifth stepper driver placed on the board. That is the case with yours.

Let me know how this works out because I upgraded my creality CR10s printer and have the old board sitting here. I was thinking about building a mpcnc and using it as the mainboard.

Well thats depressing… guess I might get the skr pro anyway then… or another A4988 driver and practice my smd soldering. We shall see… I know I need to find the closes ramps board to it so that I can change the motherboard setting in the firmware… anyone have recommendations on what the closest ramps board would be?

You can easily drive it with serial wiring. It really isn’t a huge problem. Surprisingly, the current to the motors is the same at reasonable speeds.

Some creality boards don’t have a bootloader installed. So you’ll want to try flashing it first before you get too far with this board.

So bad news… I have been printing the wrong parts :frowning: apparently I followed an outdated link and ended up with the burly parts rather than primo. @vicious1 next time you get a chance, you should update the links in the “DIY” section of the “Specifications” page on the website to link to the new primo parts list and primo thigiverse page :slight_smile:

Ouch!!!

Yeah luckily I was only 1/4 the way done when I noticed… so I only wasted about 1/2 a spool… I’m printing the right (primo) parts now… they are slower but much more sleek!

Yeah, I’m super impressed with the new style. I thought the burly was an amazing setup, but the primo is a new league in terms all aspects.

I got the rest of the filament I need for my primo parts… can’t wait to see it turn into a cnc before my eyes

Shoot! Can you paste an actual link? I think the v1 website still has a bunch of pages up, and google goes there, but the breadcrumbs should be pointing to docs.v1engineering.com.

Ok. I can make a PR for the docs one. The specifications one is old and we need to make it point to the other one instead of updating it. I don’t know the layout of Ryan’s website, and google will track people to that second page.

The burly docs are in the new docs. Address too. It was a burly version where we converted it.
