    Lerdge 32bit Printer Controller

    Hi guys and girls,

    I just bought one of these 32bit printer boards to replace the poorly performing Ramps/Arduino setup in my Kossel delta, mainly for the performance, ease of setup and 1/128 microstepping with LV8729 motor drivers

    Thought I would start a thread and see who else is using, or wants to know more about this board.

    Still not set up, as board is using different connectors to Ramps so rewiring everything

    A good 32 bit board can make a difference. I first tried a Smoothie board which did work well.

    But then a friend put me on to the Duet line of controllers.

    Long story short I liked so many things about the products (design, documentation and support to name a few) I replaced the controller boards in all of my printers with the Duet's.

    Keep us informed of your experiences with your new board.

      Waiting on a suitable crimp tool to arrive to re-wire to the JST style connectors used on this board, nice that a set of connectors and shells was provided as well with the board though. JST seem an improvement as they are lower profile than the Du-Pont style used on the Ramps boards which gets my wiring further away from the heated bed, and a single board rather than a stack helps that too. I was always bothered that my control electronics was sat next to a 60deg plus heater.!

      First impressions are it is a small (90x90mm), neat and quality board, and the firmware (whilst closed source, is DEAD easy to set up. no modify/flash/upload circus to do changes, set them all right there on the touchscreen panel and off you go. I will never look at a Marlin Configure.h again

      Will update as I get things running

        Hi
        Support is slow at the moment but there is light at the end of the tunnel.
        There is a Lerdge.com website coming in English and there will be a online setup web setup system coming soon.
        People forget that this board is new to the industry and Lerdge have invested vasts amounts of cash and its in there best intrests to make it one off the best boards out there.
        They are trying to make this as simple as possible for the end user.
        Still to fit mine after I complete the piezo auto leveling system.

            I just bought one also. I need it to replace my duetwifi, which has been a nightmare.

              I have the lerdge s , just installed this last weekend. My only issue is the hot end is 70 c to low. My work around it having to add 70 c to whatever your printing. I am using the same setup as when I was running the printer with ramps board. Lerdge needs to add heat offset settings or a way to calibrate the thermo mist.

                  How are you connecting to your pc, or are you just using sd card?

                    Sorry for late reply, currently using the USB stick. I am still waiting for the PC/wifi module, I already have my wifi card programmed, just waiting for the lerdge s USB add-on module. I still have the same issues I posted above. Lerdge support never answered me back. Yet!!
