MKS BaseV1.2 3D Printer Controller Board (RAMPS 1.4 + Arduino 2560 remix board)
The new MKS Base 1.2 3D Printer Controller board combines and improves the assets of the RAMPS 1.4 and Arduino Mega 2560 boards on a fantastic single board solution. The MKS Base 1.2 is an optimal 3D printer controller solution for your Reprap 3D Printer.
The MKS Base 1.2 solves interface connection problems between the Arduino Mega 2560 and RAMPS 1.4 boards by having both integrated into a single board
5 Stepper Motor Driver Slots. The boards supports a wide variety of Stepper Motor Drivers - most notably A4988, DRV8825 and Ice-Blue Stepper Motor drivers drive
The MKS Base 1.2 board uses a high quality 4-layer PCB which optimizes heat dissipation
Firmware can use the same configuration as RAMPS 1.4
Easy DISPLAY + SD-CARD connector - compatible pin header on board for 12864 & 2004 LCD Display controller panels.
6x end stop connectors with power supply Xmin/Xmax/Ymin/Ymax/Zmin/Zmax
3 x 5V output, 3 x Power voltage output
Reserve motor pulse and direction output port
Support 12V-24V power input

Install Diver Software
A. Connect the main board with computer, and then right click “Computer” to enter “Device Manage”.
B. Double click “Other devices”, appearing “USB Serial Port”.
Then, right click “USB Serial Port” and select “Update Driver Software” to install driver software.
After that, select “Browse my computer for driver software” to find the file.
Browse to search for driver software.
After your driver software updated, click “Close” to finish.
Install development environment software IDE
Double click arduino-1.5.6-r2-windows to start.
Select “I Agree”to accept license agreement.
Select components to install and click “Next”.
Click “Browse” and select another folder. Click “Install” to start the installation.
Finally, wait for a few minutes to finish.
Install Firmware for Main Board
A. You must close Arduino IDE firstly, and then place three libraries LiquidCrystal, SPI and U8glib from Marlin_Marlin_v1→ArduinoAddons→Arduino_1.x.x→libraries into Arduino/libraries.
B. Enter Marlin_Marlin_RAMPS_2004_Ver1 this folder, double click Marlin_Marlin_RAMPS_2004_Ver1.ino this file, finally click “Tools” to set “Board”and “Port”.
After verifying, write code.
Install Slicer Software Repetier-Host
Application of Slicer Software
E. After slicing, go to Preview→G-Code Editor, copy G-Code to SD card, and then insert the card into the main board. It is time to kick off the print! Though the LCD screen go to : Print from SD→Desired File. Or you can connect your 3D printer to computer using a USB cable to start the print.
G. We just introduce a simple method about printing. Thanks to selling only main board by us, you should design your own structure and outlook of your 3D printer, and you should also set your own configuration to meet your need. After you assembling your printer, the printer need to be leveled, so you can make some setup in Preview and Manual Control, and surf the internet for further information.
H. We have a G-Code to test the main board. Power it on, open limit switch and stepper motor, drive three motors; put a Fnbduino.gco file to Preview, click Start Print, if the motors rotate, X/Y/Z value in Manual Control changes, the main board works as shown below:
