newbie setting up the MKS Sbase...confused smiley
June 27, 2017 02:41AM
Hi,
I have a Delta Kossel XL Home built with openbuilds...long story short I had a BBP1S board that was giving me some issues so swapped out with this Sbase....question is as follow :
being new to smoothieware.... I have successfully installed the firmware bin file as indicated by .cur...I however don't get how you install the config file? can some pls send me a link and how to put it on the cd card?

I also would like to confirm that with the board connected to laptop via cable and or with 24vdc connected my 12864smart LCD just lights up with no info...is this normal? I swapped the cables around in various configurations with the same results.

thanks in advance

you put the config file on the sd card, in the root directory called either config or config.txt

When its in the controller it should also come up as a drive on your computer.

Without a config, you wont have a display. It doesn’t know it has one..
