Arduino won't open Marlin created with Ginge's Marlin Builder

Recommended Posts

Posted · Arduino won't open Marlin created with Ginge's Marlin Builder

I am getting an error when I try to open the firmware I just created with Ginges Builder.

When I try to open Configuration H, I get the following:

"Processing can only open its own sketches and other files ending in .ino or .pde"

I can however open an old firmware version w/o any problem.

I have updated to the latest Arduino software and have the same problem.

Anyone experience this or know what might be wrong?

Thanks

There's an ino file. You have to open that file with the arduino ide.

Not sure what you are trying to do exactly as ginge's builder makes the hex file for you which you can then send to your board with Cura. Be aware this is UM1 only (not UM2).

By the way, there's a README file with the sorce files at erikZalm which tells you how to build it yourself so that you don't need the ginge builder version but the ginge builder is SO MUCH easier.

Configuration.h is the text file with the configuration set up in it. Not the firmware hexfile that gets loaded onto the board. If you want to build the hex file yourself, you need all of the other source files as well, not just the configuration.h file.

In order to open a set of files in the Arduino editor, you need to point it at the Marlin.pde (or the .ino file if there is one), not just the configuration.h file.

I'm also not sure that you can build Marlin with the 1.x series Arduino IDE's... but it might be possible.

I wrote up instructions on doing it from the command line, but I haven't used the Arduino IDE for building:

I guess that's because I don't really know what I'm doing. I built a custom Marlin version awhile back and that's what I'm running. That was after Daids builder and before Ginges. I was trying to load Ginges output with the Arduino software. As I found out, that doesn't work. I was in just now in the process of building another from the source, But I'll go back to Ginges builder and use Cura to upload it. I forgot that I could use cura for that.

Thanks

Success! The Firmware uploaded fine, and more significantly, my new Ulticontroller works as it should. I am disappointed that I can't move the Z axis with it. Now I need to get an SD card writer.
