Hello folks

I am finally putting together a Mendel which I bought maybe 4 years ago. I am working from various sets of instructions as my Mendel I am sure has been upgraded many times. Tis making it interesting. My problem at this point is Sprinter will not verify in the Arduino IDE.When I load the Sprinter.pde it only loads 1 Tab (that being the sprinter tab) . No other tabs are loaded (config,etc). Also I get the errors shown (see attachment) when compiling. I would sure LOVE some help with this issue. I am dead in the water at this stage.

Thank you

Glenn

What controller board is it?

Also you may want to go with something more current. Say Marlin and use arduino 1.6.x or above.

Thanks Famas

I am using a ramps 1.4 and an Arduino Mega 2560.
If that helps you.
Again thanks

Yeah, there's nothing stopping you from using a firmware that's current and still being maintained.

It could be that you are opening the wrong file.
If you are using marlin (most recent and best IMHO) you should open the marlin.ino file which should show other tabs, not just one.
The one you need to make changes to for your machine is configuration.h
