Ramps arduino to UP Mini

Post by jeeplvr » Mon Mar 30, 2015 10:14 pm

Most of this has probably been covered but this is how I did it after mu Chitu board fiasco.
Ramps 1.4
Arduino Mega
Manual end stops
Directly wired original heat bed
MK8 extruder and hot end
Modified mag mount extruder carriage
Repositioned end stops with printed mounts
Adjustable Z end stop to compensate for non adjustable heat bed

X end stop

Hello jeeplvr,

i also need to mod my mini with a ramps, as the original controller stopped working.
Can you help me with some information - which firmware do you use, can you provide me your config?
As far as i figured out:
-Steppers are 0.6A
-6.67 steps/mm at 1/1 stepping

Thanks,
Tammy

@munex

See the "Custom MCU" thread, might be of some help.

Sorry to hijack your post jeeplvr (Driving a Sahara myself btw;)
