Replacing Printrboard with MKS Gen 1.4

Postby AgentTDM » 2018-Aug-Tue-15-Aug

Does anyone here know where I can find a decent firmware file that will make a Printrbot Simple Metal work for this? I've looked on google..But, the search results were either just on how to install Marlin to the stock Printrboards or an MKS Base. Attaching the board physically won't be a problem..Since I'm making an external case with extensions anyway. https://www.amazon.com/KINGPRINT-Contro ... WA844JHRJM

Reprap.org says that a RAMPS configuration will work

Awesome. So, I'm guessing you could just upload the firmware like you would do with a RAMPS..Or do you have to change any pin assignments or something as well? I suppose the only thing to look at now is whether to use the DRV8825 steppers it came with or not. Or, should I use the A4988 ones instead?
