Changing the Config.h file in Marlin
April 11, 2014 04:08AM
Hi,

I think this is quite a noob question but I really not want to mess with the firmware smiling smiley

I want to change the direction of my Y axis, I found that I just have to change the command
#define INVERT_Y_DIR false
In the Config.h file of the firmware but is this the only file to flash on the card ?

This is how I understand it :

0. dowload the config.h file on Emmanuel github
1. plug the minitronics board to the computer
2. open the Arduino IDE, load Config.h, modify the code
3. Select the microcontroller Tools -> Board -> Arduino Mega 2560
4. Select the correct serial port in Tools ->Serial Port (mine is COM6)
5. Click the Upload button

Should it work this way or am I missing some steps ?
Thanks for your help

Hi,

You have to upload the *.ino file (which will upload the other files for you).

Thank you !
So the new list to change the firware is :

0. dowload all the files on Emmanuel github and put them in a common folder
1. plug the minitronics board to the computer
2. open Config.h (or anyother file you want to change) with a text editor, modify the code
3. Launch the Arduino IDE, and open the Marlin_FoldaRap_Minitronics.ino
4. Select the microcontroller Tools -> Board -> Arduino Mega 2560
5. Select the correct serial port in Tools -> Serial Port (mine is COM6)
6. Click the Upload button
7. Enjoy the modification

I'll try this tonight

The complete guide here :

1. First, you should download all the firmware files expressly for the minitronics (instead of the files of Emmanuel's GIThub) Here : [reprapworld.com]
2. You have to download an old version of arduino ide which is compatible with the minitronics Here : [reprapworld.com]
2.5. You have to modify the arduino ide to be able to select the minitronics on the board list if not, Here : [reprap.org]
2.75 Select the correct serial port in Tools -> Serial Port (mine is COM6)
3. open Config.h (or anyother file you want to change) with a text editor, modify the code
4. Launch the Arduino IDE, and open the *.ino
5. Click the Upload button
6. Enjoy the modification
