HiI am asking what each wire in the ribbon is for. I can see in the image where it connects, but now I need to split it out on the new RAMPS board. So what each wire is for is now my next challenge.Best regards
Hi AllDoes anyone know what each ribbon cable does?https://goo.gl/photos/d1P6HMoJXNEp1vhf9This is where the ribbon connects on a K40.Regards Dean
Hi downunder35mI got in touch with the board manufacturer. The suggested I use the spare pwm pins of D11 and D12 ( instead of the D5 & D6 ) This would work great :)All I need now is your code so that I can recompile it for these pins.....so will you release it in the near future, or will you keep this to yourself?Best regards Deansmithok

Hi Downunder35mThanks for getting back to me.I also understand now that the differences betyween the controller hardwares is that your controller has it's pins exposed and mine not. I can fix that :)I am quite new to electronics but have been coding for 20+ years. So if you need any help with the code then I offer it.I think I now got the question for the manufacturer how I connect to the Arduino mega CPU pins D5 and D6 (as in digital) - Does that look right to you?Best regards
HiYour code :I have your latest hex compilation. But I am on linux, so can't use your upload program. Please could I have your latest code so that I can work it for my board.Question to the manufacturer:There is a D5 and D6, actually D5, D6, D7, D8 & D9, but they look like axis connectors. I can ask the manufacturers for help on the laser power, but please help me with the question to them...:: Should I ask to help me identify the connection to one of the axis controllers?Best regards
