Hi, All,
sorry i couldn't find the presentation section so i post it here,
I will briefly tell you my issue so perhaps you can tell me on which section should i post my tread,
I have an 3d printer, LittleRP, which is controlled by sparkfun RedBoard, the printer is second hand, i have not clue how is programming with arduino, now this printer never worked as it should, most probably some issue on the firmware, i was trying to install a firmware that i found online with the hope to fix my issue but i guess i made it worst, so that's why i'm here.
I would like to erase/format my board and install the new firmware, Can you please guide me how to do that?

Thanks and Sorry for the long Tread

Does that mean that it works, but not correctly? If so it would hlelp a lot if you explain what it actually does and what it should do that is different.

If it works at all my assumption would be that the firmware is OK and some settings are wrong, or maybe the hardware connections.

You may find more useful info on a Forum that specialises in 3D printing - for example the RepRap Forum.


According to the SparkFun website the RedBoard is programmed as if it is an Uno.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

Post a link to the github page

I hope you have learned the lesson NOT to delete firmware prematurely.

It looks as if the Firmware is GRBL I suggest you Google grbl arduino ide for several websites that explain how to upload it.

If you think about it I'm sure you will agree that that does not give me any useful information from which to help you.

Could you take a few moments to Learn How To Use The Forum.
It will help you get the best out of the forum.

Bob.

It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.
