As per Ryan’s request, I’m posting here. While I wait for the last parts to print, I’m trying to configure my Ramps 1.4, and test my steppers.
I have downloaded MPCNC813_GLCD for 5/16 lead screw, as that’s what I am using for now, and I am using Arduino IDE 1.6.11 to load it to my Mega. I have the Reprap Discount Smart Controller LCD
I did go through the configuration.h and un-comment my display and comment out the full graphics one. Mega 2560 is selected and baud rate on the comm port and IDE set to 115200.
I have 2 megas available, but only one Ramps boards. I have not gotten either Mega board/Ramps to boot and show anything but all squares on the display.
I am confirming each of the above as I write this, and I did find I forgot to comment out the full graphics display in configuration.h. So I reloaded the Mega and Wam! I get MPCNC ready.!
Now to power off, connect a stepper and try to get Repetier Host to move X, Y, and Z. Do I need the resistor on T) to do this? As I am a certified (or is itCertifiable?) senior citizen, I beg forgiveness for my screw up, and ask if there is anything else I need to do, other than maybe write a simple gcode as a test?
