  1. Dears, I want to build marlin firmware with makefile, and I have installed Arduino 1.5.2 and the install path is G:/software. Then I changed makefile as below: # This defined the board you are compiling for (see Configuration.h for the options) HARDWARE_MOTHERBOARD ?= 72 # Arduino source install directory, and version number ARDUINO_INSTALL_DIR ?= G:/software/arduino-1.5.2-windows/arduino-1.5.2 ARDUINO_VERSION ?= 152 # You can optionally set a path to the avr-gcc tools. Requires a trailing slash. (ex: /usr/local/avr-gcc/bin) AVR_TOOLS_PATH ?= G:/software/arduino-1.5.2-windows/arduino-1.5.2/hardware/tools/avr/bin/ After changed the makefile, from a command prompt, I change into Marlin directory, and then type 'make', it shows below error: G:\Marlin>make make: *** No rule to make target `G:/Marlin/applet/wiring.o', neede d by `G:/Marlin/applet/Marlin.elf'. Stop. Very appreciated if any help~ PS: Actually, I am not sure about the arduino version :152
  2. Hello gr5, Very appreciated for sharing your experience in printing the tower. I use UM2 to print such thing and the cura version is 14.06. As you said, the scale is very critical. Firstly ,I try to print without scaling up and I found it difficult to finish the first arche. Then I scaled the model up to 1.5 times, that is about 7.1 inches tall, and I can print the tower to the second arche. But it is difficult to continue~ Now, I will try it again by scaling up the model more and with 100% fan speed~ BTW, you said "In 3 pieces" , what does that mean? detach the model with 3 seperated parts?
  3. Dears Anyone knows the better parameter settings for cura to print eiffel tower? how to set shell thickness, fill, retraction, speed... Below link is the stl model http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:22051
  4. Dear gr5, I just want to edit the gui, add some buttons or something else to control the UM2 more convenient or show more printing messages of 3D printer...And you are right, I just need to edit py files, need to change C++ engine
  5. Dear nallath, You are right~ I just have some experience with C, and know a little with C++, totally new hand for python. I admit that my question is too basic :-P I think I should learn more necessary skills before changing cura source code... However, very appreciated for your answer :-P
  6. Dear Daid, I am familiar with c/c++, but new hand for python :-| , and I just want to know some principle of cura~ My understanding is Cura-SteamEngine is just a python GUI and I should combine it with CuraEngine-master. is that right? thank you!
  7. Dears, I want to do some modifications on cura and I installed wxpython. Then I download Cura-SteamEngine from github and unzip it. But when I run cura.py, error shows: ImportError: No module named Cura.util how can I solve this problem? Very appreciated if any sopport~
  8. Yes, Robert, you are right :-P I tried to use pronterface to control UM2 this afternoon, and it still work
  9. Thank Didier and Dim3nsineer for quick answer~ However, I think it amazing if we can control a 3D printer with a friendly user interface like fronterface. Also I think it convenient to solve some issues by moving XYZ axis a little, preheating, changing temperature, extruding though pronterface. But we can only print with cura... :-| And I think it great if wifi function can be integrated in 3D printer :-P
  10. Hello everyone~ Can I 3D print with cura on UM2 ? I mean if I can control UM2 for 3D printing with cura directly though usb just like pronterface, not from SD card Anyone knows? thank you!
