I’ve been humming and hawing about the order to do some things in and realizing that I simple need to ask here. (I am SOMEWHAT lysdexic… errr dyslexic… and drilling down to find SPECIFIC info is sometimes tiring & frustrating)
I have a Ramps 1.4 and the Arduino ready to go. I DON’T presently have them attached to the machine yet. (At the moment, I’m NOT at home where the CNC is… but I have the Arduino and Ramps & drivers with me though)
- Question 1: Does the firmware just get loaded into the Arduino... or is there some path to the Ramps controller where firmware ends up?
- Q2: -If it just gets burned to the Arduino does that mean I can simply do it while it is not connected to anything but my laptop? -OOOOR... does the Ramps HAVE TO BE attached to the Arduino AND therefore also have power going directly to the Ramps?
