I can't get my LCD for my 3d reprap to display. It's just a blank screen (though on) after I uploaded the firmware (via arduino) to my MKS Gen v1.4 board. The wires appear oriented correctly, the firmware appeared to be uploading. The LCD is 12864, but no characters show.

How do you connect the lcd Smart adapter to a RAMBo board? I purchased it from a Chinese manufacturer, but it appears pretty much the same.

Yesterday I decided to improve my old RepRapPro Mendel, and I found a clever way to easily block a digital calliper on all the three axes, and then I started to carefully calibrate the axes steps.
Now I am printing the first objects after years of dust. They look very nice.
Then I think I will try to recalibrate the objects fitting capabilities.

Was using Slic3r in this case.
