Introduction

Simple guide to install FW update on a printer with RAMBo mini.

  1. Go to Arduino.cc We need version 1.0.6! Download and run Windows Installer.
  2. Go to http://www.prusa3d.com/drivers/ and download FW for your motherboard. Unpack the zip. Copy the "rambo" folder located inside ..\ArduinoAddons\Arduino_1.x.x\ into C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\hardware\
    • Go to http://www.prusa3d.com/drivers/ and download FW for your motherboard.

    • Unpack the zip.

    • Copy the "rambo" folder located inside ..\ArduinoAddons\Arduino_1.x.x\ into C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\hardware\

    • Restart Arduino IDE and check if "RAMBo" is available under Tools -> Board

  3. Connect the printer to the computer and note the COM port. You can use HW manager to find out. Open the folder Marlin_Rambo_miniLCD_retract_EN. Open file Marlin_Rambo_miniLCD_retract_EN (It has arduino icon)
    • Connect the printer to the computer and note the COM port. You can use HW manager to find out.

    • Open the folder Marlin_Rambo_miniLCD_retract_EN.

    • Open file Marlin_Rambo_miniLCD_retract_EN (It has arduino icon)

  4. Under Tools -> Port choose your printer COM port. Recheck if RAMBo is selected under Tools > Board.
    • Under Tools -> Port choose your printer COM port.

    • Recheck if RAMBo is selected under Tools > Board.

    • Click Upload.

    • Wait for Done uploading and you are done.

source-build (github ~20160210) under win10, arduino 1.6.0

~Step 1: Install arduino 1.6.0

~Step 2: install prusa windows drivers (http://www.prusa3d.com/drivers/) - but instead of grabbing firmware there...

grab sources from https://github.com/prusa3d/Prusa-i3-Plus

copy Prusa-i3-Plus-master/ArduinoAddons/Arduino_1.6.x/hardware/marlin folder to C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\hardware

start arduino, select tools->boards->RAMBo

~Step 3: check win10 device manager includes a Ports->Rambo

BUILD HACKS

rename C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\libraries\LiquidCrystal\src to src-tmp

edit C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\hardware\marlin\avr\platform.txt as:

change:

compiler.path={runtime.tools.avr-gcc.path}/bin/

to:

compiler.path=C:/Program Files (x86)/Arduino/hardware/tools/avr/bin/

Copy appropriate file for your Prusa from Prusa-i3-Plus-master/Firmware/variants/

(ex.: 175-RAMBo1-3a-en.h) to Prusa-i3-Plus/master/Firmware/Configuration_prusa.h

[... continued below due to board message length constraints...]

~Step 4: In arduino, open the Prusa-i3-Plus-master/Firmware/Firmware.ino

As per original step 4, ensure your Port & tools->board settings are selected correctly.

Sketch->Verify / Compile.

Firmware should build (green progress bar in lower left main window, compilation stats on success)

File->Upload

after upload, the prusa display looks crazy. Wait a little while & cold reboot.

Working ok for me thus far - good luck!
