Hi Rob,

I'm not sure if you already figured out the firmware etc but I was able to
print today! I'm using the Repetier-Host AppImage and the Prusa fork of
Slic3r Appimage (AppImage is the recommended runtime for both programs). I
can do a write-up later this week but the executables are located in
~/home/threed/AppImages and can be run via command line or double click
(they are also in the system menu but so is the old repetier installation
which I think is bad), run them without sudo (sudo can be problematic for
graphical programs).
The config is called "roland prusa i3", 250000 baud appears to be working.
The printer does need a new bed (a simple wood block),  the mdf is falling
apart and uneven so I had to wedge some paper under it to get the z axis
right. It definitely still needs some tweaking, but behold the almighty
glory of the futuristic technology now in our posession!! (attached)

I think we have the printer at 250000 baud but mono on linux wont go over
115200 baud


I tried to get the new marlin firmware uploaded with the lower baud rate
buit tried to verify the sketch and it wouldnt verify, or I guess there is
a mono patch to allow other baud rates.

Not so much luck and too hot by the printer.

Close !
