    anet a8 motherboard on bukobot


    ive got a bukobot v2 (GIFT). the mainboard is broke, a friend of mine has a anet A8 printer. and very happy about the controler. so i ordered a anet a8 mainboard and lcd. to put on my bukobot.

    now before i start printing, i think i have to change some settings, like the rod bukobot uses and the steppers. ive got the details of my bukobot : X & Y Steps using 15 teeth / 3.18 pitch synchromesh cable 111.98/mm at 1/32 microstepping
    Z Steps for M6 threaded rods: 6400/mm at 1/32 microstepping
    Extruder Steps using Tatsu Drive Gear and 13.6:1 ratio stepper motor (Bukobot): 630/mm at 1/8 microstepping

    how can i get my anet A8 mainboard to drive my bukobot ?

    somthing to do with the Gcode ?

    i use cura 3.1.0


    The anet 1.0 board does not have pots to adjust and drive different rated steppers. Your choice is to use a8 steppers, mod the anet board, or go with another board.

    There is a version of marlin with anet configuration called skynet3d that you can flash on the anet board.


      thank you,
      what kind of board do you recoment?


        whatever board you get you will have to configure and upload firmware to it and you will need to know info re steppers like steps/revolution, bed size, belt tooth pitch, end stops etc. the easiest firmware is marlin or repetier. I have an Arduino Mega with Ramps 1.4 I am working on and chose Repetier firmware as it has an auto config app.


          Maybe you should use the latest version of gcode to drive the 3D printer. The settings seem almost alright. However, try changing the gcode to get a better outcome.
