Modify TinkerGnome source code to swap round hotend heater 0 and 1

Recommended Posts

Hey all,


My hotend heater blew the other day and since then no matter what I change multiple times temperature sensors or heaters (30w,35w and 40W) with base pid settings for each watt the autotune always fails by over shooting over 20c.  I have tried all suggestions on the forums for pid, but there is a consistent overshoot speed.


I think my mosfet might be damaged, so I want to build a firmware using heater and temperature device 2 as default. If it is the mosfet at least I can use the 2nd connection as a redundancy so I don't have to buy a new control board. 


Can anyone advice the source code reverences need to be changed? and would this just be in the Configuration or Configuration_adv as well?

I think, swapping the pin numbers in "pins.h" is all what is needed.


In "pins.h" go to the section "MOTHERBOARD == 72" and swap the pin numbers between






good luck!

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
