K so I'm thinking abut trying to upgrade my old Anet A8 motherboard to Marlin. I have been looking around on the intertubes and now I'm more confused than ever. Everyone uses a different flavor of Marlin and no one does the update in the same way. Many also seem to leave out important steps.
Can someone help me or direct me to an upgrade posting or video on how to do this? Assume I know nothing (because I don't).
While printing in ABS, the hotbed caught on fire, burning the printer and the entire room with it. I world seriously advise all of you to rethink owning this printer. The only thing stopping the fire from speeding was the fact that the room was closed, the lack of oxygen kept the fire from growing. Personally I have learned my lesson, 150 usd printer cost me 2000 usd worth of damage. I won't be buying any Chinese electronic such as this any time soon.
Seems this site is mostly abandoned by those who run it. The quality has dropped and it's becoming overrun by ads and spam.
So as I prepare to move all my designs and information off thingiverse I have a Discord in the mean time.
But where to go? I like Pinshape the most so far.
Any suggestions? Input?
When I bought my Anet, I also bought this sensor http://www.gearbest.com/3d-printer-parts/pp_591321.html?wid=21, as it seemed equal to the ROKO SN04-N (https://3dprint.wiki/reprap/anet/a8/improvement/autobedleveling). However, now that it came I don't find any information about it, so can someone tell me if it's usable on A8?
