Direct Drive - Firmware changes

Recommended Posts

Posted · Direct Drive - Firmware changes

Hey guys,

If I convert to direct drive, am I right in assuming no firmware changes will be required. The current setup is 1:1 with the standard pulleys, so assume direct drive will not need any steps adjustment?

Thanks,

Likely you need to switch the direction. This can be done by swapping 2 wires on the motor plugs.

Yea for the motor that swaps to the other side. Cant be doing with having to faff with the firmware every time an update comes out, i'd rather sort it mechanically.

You can keep your Marlin configuration file and recompile it with new versions. The official fork at least makes sure that older config files still work with new versions.
