    During my lunch break I went ahead and updated the Marlin files. I noticed I needed to make a change in three spots since I have the lead screw upgrade

    (LINE 453)#define RIGHT_PROBE_BED_POSITION 205
    - changed from 200 to 205
    (LINE 455)#define BACK_PROBE_BED_POSITION 230
    - changed from 210 to 230
    (LINE 574) #define DEFAULT_AXIS_STEPS_PER_UNIT {80,80,800,800}
    - change 2560 to 800

    Makes sense?

    Yes. Looks correct.

    Although the probe positions are (largely) arbitrary. If you want to have them spaced differently that is how you do it.

    Hi,, I know that this thread is old and last post is about a month ago
    I just want to ask if I can use the kill button of any lcd controller that is compatible with the robo 3d printers to be used as a (Pause & Resume) button
    Instead of being used to kill the whole progress so when you want to change the color while printing from (sd card) without referring to the pc to pause and change the color and then resume from pc

    there is a thread in the reprap forum but I can't post links because this is my first participation

    Thanks in advanced

    There is a menu option to "Change Filament" in the LCD menus.

    The actual LCD doesn't affect the menu.

    Okay you guys made me ordered a unit of this. So now I want to ask which case should I print?

    I know this is for the full graphic display lcd http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:613626
    Is there something similiar for the XXL? I am liking the idea of it not needing to drill any holes.

    The LCD is here. The case I printed fits like a glove. I decided to use velcro to mount it to my printer. :cool: 20151201_041550[1].jpg

    Does anyone know of an alternative to the M2 and M3 screws? I can't find that size anywhere local. I purchased a #4 self tapping screw, but they are too big. I have the case for the XXL Lcd printed, just need to mount it.

    A #2 screw is in between an M2 and M3 , maybe that will work better.

    These are screws that are more in the domain of electronics than hardware stores. I'd guess if you still have one of the last standing radio shacks, they might have something about the right size. Otherwise, just search around for computer repair type places. There's got to be something. R/C Hobby shops would also have them.

    In the US, where they exist, Ace hardware has a full line of metric hardware. Cleverly hidden... (so ask for help).

    Not ours... Nothing below M4 so if yours carries it then it is not universal :)

    Found some tiny screws at Aubuchon Hardware that worked great! Took a handful of other sizes just in case;).

    From the Control Menu ---> Motion ---> Z-Offset

    Here is the thing, for example, here is my Starting Script for my Z-Offset : M565 Z-1.0 ; set the offset for auto-leveling mechanism
    Then when I looked in the Control Menu it shows my Z-Offset is not -1.0. It is still showing to whatever Z-Offset to whatever I used before.

    So how can I set this right?
