Internal connections on MKS GEN V1.4

Post by cold_matter » Mon Jan 29, 2018 6:45 pm

Does anyone here have experience with building their own 3D printer? I'm looking specifically for people who have used the MKS Gen V1.4 controller. I'm not planning to use it for printing, but a different project which requires stepper motor control and it seemed like a nice solution, but I will need to write my own firmware for it using the arduino ide.

In order to do that, I need to know the internal connections - i.e. which pins on the Atmega 2560 are connected to which pins on the motor driver mounts? I think once I have this info I can just run the motors individually using the AccelStepper library.

Any information would be appreciated!

How about this: http://reprap.org/wiki/File:MKS_GEN-PIN.PNG

don't know much about the board but there is a page on reprap about it were you may find additional information
