Hey folks. New firmware working like a charm! Don't forget to change settings if you have heated bed and your fans are located on the hotend. In other case you will have troubles like I have. Search for the AC-version in the comments
Seams like setting Z offset doesn't work and height after calibration become increased.
So in other words, I've started autocalibration and after that Z heght increased. So I thought that I will correct it by Z-offset from menu or repetier, but no luck. I rolled beck to previous AC version.

Has anyone ordered/received this new printer?
I would love to order it! tho not particularly excited about being the first to try it. I was thinking to get the delta kossel but the print bed is just big enough for what im planning to print, so shying away from it. I do prefer this style of printer over the i3, seems to be a great design for bed stability(plus huge print area).
Only things i can fault with this is the bed is not heated and the extruder is a bowden.
After putting in marlin_main.cpp into the RC8, the printer does not respond to any G33 commands. Even the LCD panel is unresponsive to the Delta Calibration for auto-calibration, height calib, etc. Only auto-home works.
So the Arduino board died in mine, received the replacement yesterday and got it put together. I cant seem to find my backup of the older firmware I was using, so I downloaded the newest version LVD posted 3 days ago. I struggled with it for about an hour last night and gave up and went to bed. I havent had a chance to look at it today, and it may be something simple I just couldnt think of. When I look in the firmware it shows my Z height commented, and says to retrieve the number from auto calibration. When I run calibration my hot end only goes down about 5-10cm and runs through in open air, and I get the message "calibration OK" Any suggestions as to why my hot end will not go all the way to the bed?
So I wiped the firmware, and reuploaded it and now the M665 commands seem to work and I can print again, sort of. I can only print with programs made with Repetier, when I prefer Cura. Cura and the auto calibrate both still seem to thing my zero is about 5-10cm from the top.
I will try uncommenting my delta_height and see if that makes any difference. I am really disappointed I didn't backup my marlin settings from before, I had my printer tuned in damn near perfect.
Well that was interesting. Uncommented and ran the auto calibration, all seemed well, went to print and my print head slammed down so hard it broke 2 of my rods and my effector (was rather poorly printed).
Does anyone have the STL files for the new style effector/fan blocks flsun sells with these printers now? I will have my friend print them on his ultimaker while I wait for new rods in the mail.
I cooked the original board in my FLSUN once I started to use the heated bed. Happen to anyone else? I switched to the MKS GEN 1.4 with drv8825 and getting overall much better results.
A tip. While I was at it, I found some LCD strips that just fit inside the slots in the frame. These can run off the 12v auxiliary pins on the new board. If you put them in the front two uprights, rather than all three, you get good illumination of the bed without them shining in your eyes. Makes a very neat lighting solution!
My MKS mini failed after the first print. No idea why (maybe the heated bed). Replaced it with RADDS + RepRapFirmware - been using it about a year and still very happy (though next time might go for a Duet).
hey i used the latest LVD firmware to my fulsun and after auto calibration i got a smaller delta radius and offset in both the x and y endstops of about -0.6 and -0.3 mm.
i printed some cubes and a delta calibration test from thinkiverse and got a problem with the dimension in the x tower direction.
was it the x end stop offset thet did that?
should i recalibrate after adjusting the bed or sould i try twiching with each tower diagonal_rod prameter?
I'm not an C++ programmer and there is a lot I don't understand so this question is for you.
Please, i hope to use my FLSun in the coming days but now the firmware is not working as wanted
After download and compiling your version, my first compilation went well, but after putting my active serial port it went wrong???
* Select which serial port on the board will be used for communication with the host.
* This allows the connection of wireless adapters (for instance) to non-default port pins.
* Serial port 0 is always used by the Arduino bootloader regardless of this setting.
* :[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]

I want update my flsun-delta to dual-filament, using TL-feeder system. I understand I need new motherboard to use this. So I would buy MKS Gen-L V1.0 to install another feeder-motor. And my question is: will Marlin-AC compatible with this board? What I need change inside firmware for this?
