I just received a purchase of a Mini 2560 board, as well as a portable programmer from @CrossRoads. I am very pleased with the quality of the boards! they were packaged very nicely, and arrived very quickly. I very much look forward to using them! I would post pictures, but they are right on Robert's website. though once they are in use, i may take some pictures of my project.~Travis
I just got a cheap 3D printer kitThey are cheap enough now that I have almost had my money's worth of fun just building it.The next trick is to get a RAMPS board and see if my own simple software works as well as Repetier (The RAMPS board is so I don't screw up the software that came with the printer)....R
Writing your own software to control the printer seems like a lot of work. The printer didn't come with ramps?
"I would post pictures, but they are right on Robert's website. though once they are in use, i may take some pictures of my project."Do post some pictures of the mini2560 (vs LarryDs use of the MegaDIP) and lets see how you're using it.
