    Hi there! First I want to say that Ryan is one of the coolest and smartest guy on the planet for sharing this awesome project. It amazes people every day when I say to them “I’m making a DIY CNC”.

    I’m at one stage when I move from the hardware to software.
    I’m trying to burn the firmware into the Atmega. B16_32_8mm-LCD-112515 and get all sorts of errors.
    I tried to load the https://github.com/MarlinFirmware/Marlin and it uploads fine.

    Arduino: 1.6.12 (Mac OS X), Board: “Arduino/Genuino Mega or Mega 2560, ATmega2560 (Mega 2560)”

    Your making me blush!!!

    Dude , that is a great sized MPCNC. You are going to love it.

    So the file you are trying to flash only works with a older version of the arduino IDE. The other option is just change to z steps on the new firmware to match your z rod.

    What version of the IDE I need to burn B16_32_8mm-LCD-112515 or what do I have to change in Marlin RC7 MPCNC w/LCD

    PS. Thank you for replying me so damn fast, man.

    I’m not positive but it doesn’t really matter just get one from about a year ago or older.

    I think I used the tried and true v1.0.6 for mine. And yes, that is an awesome looking machine you have. I even like the colors.

    No luck with 1.0.6 or 1.6.0.
    Could you tell me what and where do I have to modify in RC7_MPCNC_LCD_9916 for it to work with 8mm rod?

    Do you have the u8glib installed? You can add it right in arduino now and don’t need to do it separately.

    Hi! I am also having trouble programming the arduino with the old 8mm rod firmware.. I would love to be able to use the new firmware, as it uploads fine.. We really need the settings for the 8mm rod. It should only be a estep-change right?

    Love the design.. can’t wait to try mine.. made it 1200x900mm cut volume.

    Klaus.

    Just change the Z steps

    This must be it:

    Z axis problems? Software Updates

    The z steps are set in the config.h file in the firmware. Or you can change them in the eeprom with the lcd screen or repetier.
