MKS Gen L + TFT 28 Display menus missing
February 24, 2019 05:57AM
Hello, I just update my Ender 3 with MKS Gen L + TFT 28 Color touch display, it is working fine.
I am trying to setup the BLTouch on my printer but the Marlin setup was not enough.
There is a menu MOVE in TFT28 , the original display had option to set values and save.
How can I get the menus for Z Offset values/Control Motion Menu and Store Settings in the TFT 28?
Already went through the add menus but nothing show the menus I am looking for...
Any help is more than welcome.

The TFT is a small computer... all of its configuration in is the TFT config file. This is independent of Marlin.
Marlin has nothing to do with the tft28 display, the tft just sends predefined gcode to and gets responses from marlin.

you can add simple buttons for on/off features but nothing that requires an input such as a z offset.

You could add a store and and load settings, but there is no way to change any settings threw the tft...

Sadly the firmware in the TFT is close source... so you can't make any big changes.

Hi Dust, thanks for the input, I understand I can not change the TFT, but do you have any idea how can I get the same menus I had with the old Display/ I am still using marlin.
If Marlin can send this information to the original Display, maybe TFT could read it too, Am I wrong?

The TFT would need new firmware.

Too bad it is closed source because the hardware has some potential.

Somebody already ported PanelDue firmware to it.

Looks like the developer stopped and it is not complete ?
