What firmware you guys running?

Post by JaY_III » Sat May 13, 2017 3:19 am

Just wondering what firmware you guys are all running?
Have you moved to Marlin 1.1?

I am currently running the stock firmware, but think i am going to update it this weekend and hopefully can get my printer to print in the center of the bed. But before i go out and start tweaking stuff, looking to see what is the recommended firmware to run.

We have a version of Marlin RC8 here on the forum, that I used for quite a while.

I'm running a new firmware that Derek has worked quite a bit on, called MK4duo.
Printers: Tarantula | FLSun Delta
Firmware: Marlin 2.0 | Marlin 1.1.9
Slicer: Simplify3D

guess what I am asking more is, how are you picking what firmware to use?

Or is it a more of try a bunch and see what works for you kind of thing

To be honest... Marlin

Use the latest, but any of the later versions seem much the same and work fine, (enable eprom, so that you can make changes using the lcd and can be saved) the bed centering (offset) can / should be adjusted in your slicer as it enables tweeking a lot quicker / easier

+1

I thought Marlin was the best option, then I digged a bit and now I'm completely lost!
