I am trying to compile my configurations in Marlin with this error showing up. I'm a complete newbie when it comes to setting new printers up. Can someone tell me what is causing this error? (Blen_C)

Marlin

    I don't see BLEN_C in that image, so I'd guess that it's part of the LCD_CLICKED macro, which I'd expect to see defined in a header file, and I guess that header includes another which is supposed to define BLEN_C, but currently doesn't because of a header version mismatch.

    (In C conventions, anything all CAPS is usually a constant. In traditional C it might be a preprocessor define).

    p.s. It would be better if you posted code using BBcode code blocks.

    This seems to be a quite old Marlin version (process_commands is at line 1331 at the moment!). Make sure you have the current version.

     

    It is an older one (0023) because I'm setting up a 3DR Delta and according to the creater, Richrap, this version is where to start.

    I'm not really sure what your asking for? If I post all of the code it will be a huge post so which block should I post? The LCD section?

    I'm using the Smart _Controller, not with Rumba. I have the Ramps with Mega.

    Nicolinux just went through this. He is still calibrating is 3DR Delta. You should message him:

    http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/user/16181-nicolinux/

    So it looks like you are using the arduino gui to build marlin. I have lots of notes on this. Read the README file that comes with Marlin - it talks about how to set things up. There is some other package you have to install and also you need to select the correct arduino cpu - for ultimaker that's the mega2560. Probably for 3DR also but I don't know.

    Actually, I wasn't asking for anything: I was just pointing out that a bbcode exists to highlight and bracket code blocks. You bracket the code with [code] xxx [/code] markers. This can allow people to copy and test your code and help you more easily, whereas from an image they have to type in the whole thing.

    Thanks for the info fellas.....I guess I have some research to do.

    The BLEN_C define is defined in the pins.h file.

    Long story short, you have the LCD enabled, while your board definitions do not properly define all pins for the LCD button.

    I started over and am now using the newest version of Marlin, (Not the beta).

    I got the printer to home, extrude, and all of the endstops are working perfectly. The only problem I'm having now is the hot-end slamming into the base. I'm not sure where to find the code to change the travel distance from homing position to the build plate. Any suggestions? I'll post a pic.
