Okay friends, don’t shoot me…but…WHAT!!!
I build my MPCNC middle of last year and LOVE IT!!! Thank you Ryan so much for what you created. I am running a Rambo with dual endstops, and every time I fire that machine up I am as excited as a kid in a candy store. I have effectively ZERO knowledge on firmware and electronics. As such nearly every single word of this post is a foreign language to me. I have been wanting to add a controller, PS4 or xbox or joystick, to my machine since day 1. In the last few weeks I have been reading every forum and watching every youtube video I can to learn how to do it…but alas………I’m lost.
I have read this post, all 70+ entries, countless times but I am just so lost. Its clear that those of you on this post know your stuff…and its amazing. Unfortunately I just cant follow it. I am 100% confident that Ryan put in countless hours to take what is an incredibly complex evolution and make the instructions so simple that anyone can build the MPCNC and run it…and man oh man was he successful! Its freaking awesome.
But here is my issue. I know there are a lot of people who use the MPCNC, based off of my time on the FB group, that want to connect an external joystick but we just cant figure it out. Like most novices, we run the basic setup with Marlin. I love it. Its just like my 3D printer. And like me, most of us don’t want to change out the hardware or stray from Marlin. Best I can tell this thread tells us how to setup Marlin and a Rambo to add a joystick. The real issue…………I just cant follow:
So here is the really…REALLY long story, sorry, dumbed down for us non computer code/non electronic savvy people.
“Can someone put into laymen’s terms how to actually do this”? Step by step instructions with pictures and/or video’s would be great.
Maybe sometime in the near future Ryan could make it a standard part of the build.
Thanks, and sorry for the novice questions.
