A quick video of Marlin3DprinterTools new Feature => Marlin Configurator.
It is a GUI that reads your old Marlin FW and compare it with the new Marlin 1.1.0
While you check the checkboxes and enter values in textboxes the manual is available in a window on the side. It tries to understand where you are in the process of migration and gives you information of how to configure the features.

I need some pre-beta tester that have 32-bit Windows and some 64-bit windows

I have found a serious bug in the STLviewer and that is different in 32/64bit environment.

Z-BINDING CONTROL

The new version contains a z-binding control.
It actually stresstest the z-movment by doing full stokes and meassure each corner for each full stroke.
IF their is some binding that will be shown as the chart diagram will not have horisontal lines.
The feature is a perfect oportunity to do oiling/greasing of the rods and threads

I think this will be the last version that have the manual license procedure.
The next release will be 0.20-beta and that includes a automatic license-management.

When upgrading to v0.20-beta do this:

Uninstall v0.19-beta
Delete the directory C:\program(x86)\marlin3dprinterTool
Upload v0.20.beta
Install
The reason for this is that the automatic uninstall is not working on v0.19-beta

A youtube video will be available soon

Now the Marlin3Dprinter video that cover the BLTouch is published. +Tony Gomes has done the narration.. Great work!!!

I start to like the BLTouch.. Its small, accurate and light,

I have used my BigBox printer to do the video. The BigBox uses a RUMBA board with PT100 apmlifier where BLTouch normaly is installed. The video covers how to move the BLTouch "servo" connection to another pin configuration.

Here is the latest video that covers the BLTouch sensor

The narration is done by +Tony Gomes.. Great work!!

I think I prefere the BLTouch rather than my IR sensor.

Now i will continue with my RBB/MKS 1.4 rebuild with 12mm rods and my "box-extruder" . My new RBB will have graphite/brass bearings to be silent

Why try to serie- or parallell-connect 2 z-stepper motors?

I have created a "super-DRV8825" that uses only one stepperdriver-bay on the board, but gives up to 2A to each stepper-motor.

The heatsinks are in copper and mounted the way it should have been from the beginning.

The "pin-risers" are Arduino-Shield connectors. You will need one 8 pin connector and two 2pin connectors.

The heatsink is soldered to the thermal-vias a copperstrip will transfer the heat from the chip to the "external" heatsink.

I have made both the upper and the lower driver equal. This in not needed. You can simplify the design by only remove the pins for the JST connector.

The disadvantage of this design is that it will be high and that each driver hast to be adjusted separatly. When they are calibrated they are connected together and joined to the board.

When testing there was alot of improvements on the force.
