Bought my kit from here. I have a RepRap Mendel that I printed my parts with. Since both machines use the same RAMPS setup, I didn’t think I would have any troubles. But when I first plugged in the board, my computer picked it up as USB2.0 Serial. Not sure why it didn’t use the RRD_RUMBA_TAURINO_DriverSetup drivers that my other board uses. Looked around on here for an answer. Found this thread http://www.vicious1.com/forum/topic/driver-problems-with-generic-arudino-solved/
Tried that driver. Now it comes up as USB-SERIAL CH340 (COM22).
Ok, so when I tell Repetier to connect on COM22, it connects. But I get no manual control. Instead I get Communication timeout – reset send buffer block.
So, I have some experience with a similar machine and thought that since I bought the kit from you this would be kind of plug in and go. Hope you can help me out.August 25, 2016 at 2:15 pm #16704
Do you have the resistor plugged in or is it giving a max temp error and disconecting? The standard arduino drivers should work. Baud rate of your repetier?
PC or MAC?August 25, 2016 at 3:03 pm #16709
Did not have resistor plugged in. My bad. Plugged it in. Still no action.
This is a PC Win 7. Baud rate set to 115200.
I’ve previously used Repetier a few times but have preferred slic3r for slicing my print files and then I print from the lcd RepRapDiscount Smart Controller. Is your firmware setup for lcd? Can I plug it in and control directly from that?August 25, 2016 at 3:06 pm #16710
When I connect in Repetier, I get: No start signal detected – forcing start.
Then any manual commands do not get sent and I get the communication timeout.August 25, 2016 at 3:28 pm #16716
That is the wrong baud rate, the default is 250000.August 25, 2016 at 6:10 pm #16733
Thanks. That has got me manual control. I’m sure the rest will come together now.
