Re: Marlin 1.1 is out!

tried to setup comletely new with a new downloaded version. honestly, I have no idea what happens... Z reading shows a "?" at the display, when trying to home via G28 it makes a short movement, seems to ignore the endstops. crosschecked twice to set the same values/definition as in my working versio...

Re: Cura 2.6 Beta!

Hmmm... download took forever as it calceled it every few seconds, but maybe an error in my network. First start, it crashed when selecting a printer. After a few times, it worked... Next, when copying my own printer dual UMO profile in and selecting it, it crashes again. I created a new issue incl....

Re: Marlin 1.1 is out!
