Hi, no worries!

Yes, I ran this marlintool directly from the PI while SSH'd into it from my PC. You can use "git clone" to copy the repository to your pi. There's a link to the configuration header files for the Anet if you look in the readme of the github repository under the "building for Anet hardware" heading.

I needed to do this to add a BLTouch sensor to my printer. I needed to uncomment and tweak a few lines in the header files to enable this. The Pi was invaluable in this process because it allowed me to quickly and easily iterate through several configuration changes to the printer with minimal hassle. Definitely read through all the header files to see what additional features are available. After enabling the touch sensor I also found the section that would enable nozzle cleaning (with an externally mounted wire brush), and enabled that as well. Careful though, the more features you enable, the more program memory it will take and it's possible to get it up to a point where it's too big for the eeprom on the printer controller, although I do believe that this script will warn you if you exceed the maximum ROM size.
