I have a ChocEdge that has a fried Sanguinololu board. I do not just want to replace it with a new Sanguinololu, those have been giving me problems and I am a bit more familiar with the Melzi boards. I would really like to change the electronics to a Melzi board so that I can add on a heated bed and an LCD screen. My question is basically will this work?
1. What changes would I have to make for the firmware? For example, the chocedge does not need a temperature sensor for the extruder, how do I make that change?
2. What power supply/input would I need? - What does this depend on, the Melzi board or the motors?
3. I plan to use the Panelolu2 LCD for Melzi, anyone have any thoughts on this?
I’m not sure about the exact specs of the ChocEdge to begin with - many questions remain, is it a custom marlin firmware? what motors does it use?, power consumption of the motors and solenoid to allow for controlled extrusion? If anyone has any views there, that would be gold!
