Description

1. Keyestudio Mega 2560 board

Keyestudio Mega is an ATmega2560 as core microcontroller development board itself has 54 groups digital I / O input / output terminal (14 groups do PWM outputs), 16 sets of simulation than the input side, group 4 UARTs (hardware serial ports), using the 16 MHz crystal oscillator.

2. LCD 2004 Smart Controller

It contains a SD-Card reader, a rotary encoder and a 20 Character x 4 Line LCD display. You can easy connect it to your Ramps board using the "smart adapter" included. After connecting this panel to your Ramps you don't need your pc any more, the Smart Controller supplies power for your SD card.

3. RAMPS 1.4

It is a Mega Pololu Shield, or RAMPS for short,designed to fit the entire electronics needed for a RepRap in one small package for low cost. RAMPS interfaces an Arduino Mega with the powerful Arduino MEGA platform and has plenty room for expansion. The modular design includes plug in stepper drivers and extruder control electronics on an Arduino MEGA shield for easy service, part replacement, upgrade-ability and expansion. Additionally, a number of Arduino expansion boards can be added to the system as long as the main RAMPS board is kept to the top of the stack.

4. A4988 stepper driver

This product is a carrier board or breakout board for Allegro's A4988 DMOS Microstepping Driver with Translator and Overcurrent Protection by Pololu; we therefore recommend careful reading of the A4988 datasheet before using this product. This stepper motor driver lets you control one bipolar stepper motor at up to 2 A output current per coil.

Package list

1pc Keyestudio Mega2560
1pc Lcd2004 smart Controller
1pc Ramps 1.4
5pcs A4988 stepper driver
1pcs Panel Adapter
1pcs USB 2.0 cable

Connection Method

A. Mount 4988 correctly, don’t mount reversely, or they will be burnt, as shown below:
thumb
B. As for 2004LCD, firstly add an adapter, then connect ESP1 to ESP1, ESP2 to ESP2, as shown below:
thumb
C. Diagram connection as shown below:

Using Method

Install Diver Software

A. For different operating system, there may be slight difference in installation method. Below is an example in WIN 7.
When you connect Arduino Uno to your computer the first time, right click “Computer” —>“Properties”—> “Device manager”, you can see “Unknown devices”.

thumb

B. Click “Unknown devices”, select “Update Driver software”.
thumb

C. In this page, click “Browse my computer for driver software”.
thumb

D. Find the “drivers” file.
thumb

E. Click “Next”; select “Install this driver software anyway” to begin the installation.
thumb

F. Installation completed; click “Close”.
thumb

G. After driver is installed, go to “Device manager” again. right click “Computer” —> “Properties”—> “Device manager”, you can see 2560 device as below figure shows, also the correct Com port.
thumb

Install development environment software IDE

Double click arduino-1.5.6-r2-windows to start. Select “I Agree”to accept license agreement.
thumb
Select components to install and click “Next”.
thumb
Click “Browse” and select another folder. Click “Install” to start the installation.
thumb
Finally, wait for a few minutes to finish.
thumb

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.
thumb
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”.
thumb

thumb
After verifying, write code.
thumb
Done uploading.
thumb

C. After upload the firmware the LCD will display some parameter as shown below:

Install Slicer Software Repetier-Host

First, run this application
thumb

thumb

Click “Next” to continue.
thumb

Check “I accept the agreement”, and click “Next” to continue.
thumb
Select destination location, and click “Next” to continue.
thumb
Check components that should be installed, and click “Next” to continue.
thumb

Select star menu folder, and click “Next” to continue.
thumb
Click “Next” to continue.
thumb
Click “Install” to install.
thumb

thumb
Click “Finish” to exit Setup.

Application of Slicer Software

A. Run Repiter-Host,click Load to open a printing model.
thumb

B. Click Printer Settings to complete some setup, referring to below figure.
thumb

C. Enter Object Placement to set placing position, printing size and so on.
thumb

D. Click Slicer to set slicer, like printing speed. After setting slicer, click Start Slicing to begin slicing.
thumb

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.
thumb

F. Click “Connect”and then click “Start Print” to begin the print. After some time, your printer gets ready and the buzzer rings, then you should press the button on LCD to start.
thumb

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.
thumb

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:
