New Firmware

Sometimes your Arduino will need updating, be it due to a accidental overwrite or a upgrade to a LCD driven printer. This requires settings tailored specifically for the type of printer you have, something that can be quite confusing without practice. So we have gathered together all the info needed to re-flash your firmware below.

First off, you need to download the Arduino IDE and install it. If you haven’t installed Repetier already, do it now. Also plug in your printer into a USB port on your computer.

 

RAMPS_board_plugins

Once that has occurred, you need to open, and set up the Arduino IDE for “Arduino Mega 2560”.

This is done by going to

Tools >Board >Arduino Mega 2560 or Mega ADK

Download and unzip the Diamond Age Firmware. This will create three items, a folder named ‘Repetier’, and two files called ‘Mako’ and ‘Moa’.

Open the Repetier.ino file in the Repetier folder via the Arduino IDE. Hit Verify, then Upload.

EEPROM

Patching the EEPROM for your model is only needed for Mako and Moa. (MakoLite / DMvII does not need this patch!)

Open Repetier and connect to your printer. Click on Config > Firmware EEPROM Configuration, then select “Load EEPROM Data” and load either the ‘Mako.epr’ or ‘Moa.epr’ depending on your printer model.

Well done, you have successfully flashed your Arduino!
