Mks Mini 12864 v3 Portrait orientation?
October 06, 2022 11:18PM
Hi there,

I have an Afinia H480 3d printer and I have spent on it way more than I should.

As you can see in the photo attached, I'm looking to mount the LCD on the vertical, I've managed to rotate it to 270° in Marlin but it's not showing all the characters correctly as I expected. Is there a easy way to fix this? I don't know, maybe rearranging the spaces for the text and icons? I did read the Marlin development pages but to no success. I know my way a bit around Marlin but I'm no programmer and if it's too difficult, I might just mount it on the supposed way.


Thanks in advance.

the lcd ia s 128x64 pixels. This is very low res by todays standard.

when you make it portrait its 64x128 pixels

This is asking a lot of 64 pixels..

Hey Dust, thanks for looking into It.

I have re-uploaded the photo. You can see now what I mean by "not showing correctly".
It's readable just fine so I guess it's not a low res problem?

I agree 64 pixels is just not much, but I don't think this is the problem here? I guess it's more of a matter to set the boundaries of the display in that orientation so the menu tree shows properly. I have tried to invert making it "64 x 128" in "ug8_dev_uc1701_mini12864_HAL.cpp" to no success either.
