Mega 2560 & RAMPS 1.4 Programming
September 02, 2015 09:07AM
Good day all,
I'm a newbie to 3D printing and frustrated not to be able to get any help from Prof GOOGLE. I have built a 3D printer based on the KIKAI Labs T125 model, 200mm x 200mm x 200mm build, Mega 2560 and RAMPS 1.4 hardware. That done, I tried to upload firmware (downloaded from GOOGLE) on the ARDUINO Mega 2560 board to start printing. To my best efforts, I'm about to get divorced as I have pulled about all my hair, out of frustration. I have uploaded Marlin firmware to the hardware, based on the ULTIMAKER, PLASTIBOT and MAKERGEAR models, but with no success. ( do I need to "Format" the chip, or will the next firmware replace the current upload?)

Enough said: Can someone PLEASE yawning smiley provide me with a download link for a complete (A to Z) instruction video or PDF download (for dummies) and links for the correct software packages to enable me to start off for the correct programming procedure; 200 x 200 x 200 build area, Kit consists of the following; Ramps 1.4 + A4988 + Mega2560 R3 +End stop + LCD12864 +MK2B for 3D Printer RepRap.

what firmware did you get from google actually? from the sound of it looks like you're trying to burn a bootloader
