Greetings all. I am a brand new user to Lightburn with a K40 ramps 1.4 combo.
First off, as I am sure you would all agree, Lightburn is a terrific bit of software and the training and support are really amazing.
So, how am I getting on?
A bit of a roller coaster really. Been banging away for several months now still trying to put together a successful configuration.
I still haven’t nailed down a proper hardware setup/pin configuration either.
So, any help or ideas to help with a few problems would be very much appreciated:
Is there a preferred firmware for ramps 1.4?
I have tried Marlin 2.0, 1.9 and MarlinKimbra. All with mixed success.
Am I spinning my wheels trying to get good consistent results with an Arduino Ramps 1.4 setup or do I need to find the funds for a Smoothieboard or Cohesion setup or something else I haven’t considered?
I am a retired/disabled ex-coder with some skills but not the sharpest tool in the shed so thanks again in advance for any help y’all can offer.
