Re: Anyone tried to make a 3D Printer controller?

I have not published anything yet. I find this ramps board a bit of a nuisance to fiddle with because the pins are not labeled and have to go through schematics to track down the pins. I am leaning towards wanting to replace ramps 1.4 with a 4 channel fet driver(off ebay), motor driver pcbs and a l...

Re: Anyone tried to make a 3D Printer controller?

There is also another implementation of smoothieware for STM32F4 MCU at https://github.com/wolfmanjm/wolf3dware . This is using an RTOS (FreeRTOS) but I am not sure at what stage is it and how it works. And according to the author there is no benefit on having a MCU with FPU for Smoothieware: https:...

Re: Anyone tried to make a 3D Printer controller?

Ok, short update on my stm32f446re plan. I got the ramps 1.4 board and it turned out the arduino connector on nucleo board does not populate all the necessary pins so I ended up having to add about 20 dupont cables. The wiring I did turned out pretty neat so not much of a deal breaker for me. I got...

Re: Anyone tried to make a 3D Printer controller?

@tetious: Do you have any more details how to build and upload aprinter firmware on a STM32 board? I was looking for more details about aprinter firmware, but there are not many. There is another example of using a NUCLEO-F411RE board together with a CNC shield V3 and Teacup firmware at http://forum...

Re: Anyone tried to make a 3D Printer controller?

@Straw: I've been following your thread. Nice work! I started recently diving into 3d printers, I am building a delta. There are many 32-bit controllers that are showing right now. I am not sure if you saw the eval kit from ST http://www.st.com/content/st_com/en/products/evaluation-tools/solution-ev...
