LCD menu item
January 12, 2018 10:21PM
Hi everyone, I'm sure you been asked this before. I adjusted some settings on my firmware and uploaded it to my Flsun delta printer and and now in my 'Move axis' sub menu instead of 'Move X', 'Move Y' and' 'Move Z' I have 'Free XY' and 'Move Z'. How do I get the 'Move X' and 'Move Y' selections back? Thanks for any help!

what settings and what firmware you may have changed something in the LCD settings and what LCD is it. More details would help

Hi Rodger123D. I'm using Marlin 1.8.1 and the only setting I changed was the #define DELTA_HEIGHT from 285 to 284, that's what's got me so stumped! Any help would be great! Thanks.

Not sure what happened, what you are looking for appears to be here


void lcd_move_menu() {

MENU_ITEM(submenu, MSG_MOVE_X, lcd_move_get_x_amount);
MENU_ITEM(submenu, MSG_MOVE_Y, lcd_move_get_y_amount);
MENU_ITEM(function, MSG_FREE_XY, lcd_lower_z_to_clip_height);

MENU_ITEM(submenu, MSG_MOVE_Z, lcd_move_get_z_amount);

if (active_extruder)
MENU_ITEM(gcode, MSG_SELECT " " MSG_E1, PSTR("T0"));
MENU_ITEM(gcode, MSG_SELECT " " MSG_E2, PSTR("T1"));

It appears that the code does not believe you have a DELTA printer

Code says
--do nothing
--set menu to MSG_FREE_XY

I assume that in order to restore Menu 'Move X' and 'Move Y' Comment out "//#if ENABLED(Delta)"

Though, I would try to determine why it does not think you have a DELTA printer.

Thank you Roberts Clif for the advice, it worked! Sort of... I commented out the '#if ENABLED(Delta)' and then had to copy/paste the 'MENU_ITEM(submenu, MSG_MOVE_X, lcd_move_get_x_amount);
MENU_ITEM(submenu, MSG_MOVE_Y, lcd_move_get_y_amount);' commands above the 'MENU_ITEM(submenu, MSG_MOVE_Z, lcd_move_get_z_amount);' command to get my 'Prepare' submenu back to normal.
It is definitely a work around. As a nooby to to Marlin firmware any pointers as to where the firmware defines my printer as a DELTA printer? Is it in the 'Configuration.h' subroutine. Thanks again!

Marlin firmware has more than one configuration.h file.

Here is one for the Delta's, you may need to find one for your version of Marlin firmware.

//============================= DELTA Printer ===============================
// For a Delta printer replace the configuration files with the files in the
// example_configurations/delta directory.

Hi again, I realize the different configuration files. I'm using delta/FLSUN/kossel_mini/ configuration files as I do in fact own a Flsun delta printer.
