I have been watching the marlin github, checking it every few days. It looks like an update is coming, https://github.com/MarlinFirmware/Marlin/issues/6188
The rc8 update had screen issues for us and some other random things. These issues were quickly rectified in the RC8 bugfix branch but the devs were making crazy fast progress so I didn’t want to waste the time trying to constantly update.
When the update is released I will try it out, release it in the forums if there isn’t any issues I will try and make all the crazy updated different versions that are sorely needed, 8mm lead screws, no therm, different lcd’s, try and make it so most people even if they did not get the kit, should not need to mess with the firmware.
This falls right in line with tomorrow’s shipment, Legit official Mini-Rambo 1.3 boards at a crazy good price! While at MRRF Barry and I got to chat with Johnny R from Ultimachine for a bit and, boom, better boards. A few guys from SeeMeCNC proved the rambo’s were better and made the introduction. The import Ramps are causing me to waste too much time and money so I am trying to get all my sourcing inline for a possible switch to the rambo mini, followed by the archim… The rambo boards are more expensive but should take significantly less time for me to deal with on the kits and troubleshooting side. So I will offer both but hopefully the price difference will be as little as possible for you guys and the board improvements and component quality is seriously impressive. US made boards!!!
I also think I am going to switch back to the other LCD’s that don’t require the ug8lib as I think they take less resources to run and honestly they always seem to run better.
