Wonder if I could get a new board out of Allen for the sake of testing?
I really don't see the advantage. I suppose the goal is that if they have better current control of to the stepper driver chips they can tweak the timings to make printing quieter.
It would have been better to spend that money on better driver chips. The A4988 is the absolute bottom of the barrel in stepper drivers. TI 8825 would be a better choice for a board revision and give you 1/32 microsteps too. The Trinamic TMC2100, which is now almost three years old, would be even a better choice. Both would make the steppers run quieter and cooler but the TMC2100 would be practically silent.
If there is anyone brave enough to test the latest version of Marlin direct from Robo3D, they posted the .hex files yesterday for both the C2 and R2
Marlin 1.1.6 for the C2 (Robo version 1.2.1)
Marlin 1.1.6 for the R2 (Robo version 1.2.1)
This version will enable control of case lights if you remove Mainboard component R47. There does not appear to be anything new since my last post a few days ago.
I'll pass. Someone braver than me can take that bullet.
Added a feature request to https://github.com/victorevector/RoboLCD/issues/4 to get a slider and buttons added to the roboLCD interface to control the lighting similar to the addition to config.yaml.
Unfortunately it appears that Victor Febres is not doing any work on roboLCD and there doesn't appear to be any other repositories that have picked up the development. Wasted resources on stripping Marlin when the roboLCD interface is still buggy.
This might be for @mark tomlinson only, I don't know anyone else who has played with the Alexa skills. It looks like a Robo user has forked the code from Robo's GITHUB and actually appears to be working on the code.
If it works give the man a
I began doing this for the J.A.R.V.I.S. code but I've abandoned the Amazon/Alexa or IBM/Watson approaches because of the round-trip delay to the cloud. The next effort would be to ditch the cloud for pocketsphinx. (Imagine trying to abort a print job and the delay time roundtrip to the cloud is costing you a print bed because the hotend is still drilled into it.)
OSG, there is always a plug for that. If you are close enough to use Alexa you are close enough to actually, heaven forbid, move your lazy ass and attend to the printer personally.
Reverting a few changes made to the new version of Robo Marlin, they incremented the version number to 1.2.2 (not really 1.2.2 since that doesn't actually exist in Marlin's world). Basically they put the temperature runaway parameters back to the Marlin defaults. No other changes.
Please spend more time on RoboLCD and less on Marlin!
So... do we have a list of things that the RoboLCD needs?
* Shutdown code prompts you to turn off the printer when the screen "goes black" (rather than "white" or simply "off")
* 2nd extruder on a C2 won't display anything useful in the status
* white screen of death (occasionally, possibly during pre-bootup upgrades)
* touch sensitivity (to include possible badly-configured touchscreen parameters)
* anything else?
I posted a couple on the GITHUB
Reset all EEPROM values to firmware defaults when using the Z Offset wizard
Bogus IP address displayed with some subnets.
Putting up a list in this thread is useless. They need to go on the GIT repository.
Putting up a list in this thread is awesome since I'll be the person who fixes them. :laugh:
New beta version of the firmware for the R2. Not my cup of tea so I'll stick with mine.
I'm guessing it's chock full o' goodness.
Chock full'o something
Robo just pushed a clean version of Marlin 1.1.8 onto their GITHUB. Appears they are wanting to see all the new Marlin stuff.
A new check in OctoPrint if the Z_Offset is not set a dialog box is generated.
And the way they've done it was weird, should ahve used another branch or at least pulled from the original Marlin repo...
Anyway I've based my laser branch on the commit just before that. Haven't tried printing something but was pleasantly surprised to see they have increased the Z travel speed by quite a bit.
One step forward and one step back, There is a new branch called 1.1.7-dev and Robo has pushed all it's edits to it, so just not sure anymore what version of Marlin will be the next release for the R2 / C2. They just did the same for 1.1.6-dev also.
A small edit for versioning purposes in the update script to account for a newer version of Robo flavored OctoPrint (not a new OctoPrint version).
A lot of edits to OctoPrint to make it more Robo specific, like announcements coming from Robo rather than OctoPrint, etc.
Backend stuff for Cura, which we should not care about. Mostly bringing Robo's Cura build environment up to current Ultimaker levels.
