Makerfarm Prusa i3 electronics and Cura

Recommended Posts

Hello all. I am by no means a software engineer and need some information. Will the supplied electronics with Makerfarm's Prusa i3 work with Cura? I believe it is marlin firmware, but I am not sure. Anyway, if the answer is yes, what steps are involved with syncing the electronics with Cura? Not asking about setting machine specs in the preferences, just the initial sync. Thanks.

Looks like the kit comes with Ramps 1.4 electronics, which can run Marlin, afaik. So you'll need a build of Marlin, if one isn't already installed on it.

But after that, it will jsut work with Cura. Cura generates standard Marlin gcode files, and the Marlin on the RAMPS board will read those codes and move the hardware accordingly. Other than telling Cura the bed size for your printer, and that it speaks generic gcode (not UM2 Ultigcode) - Cura doesn't greatly care what printer it's talking to.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
