The only problem is how to set it up for 200XL. The board need a default gcode file to setup before it could run with 200XL

Do we know what firmware the comes stock on the RL 200 arm board? The marlin firmware I suspect would work on this board.

The Marlin firmware is not a 32bitARM firmware, I dont think so.

Ok, I lifted this from the FB forum, currently I can't download and re-host the file she included but will try to do it over the weekend.

This where I am at with my 200XL Chitu Arm controller gcode config file. Please use at your own risk. I have reversed engineered most of this from marlin settings for the Rapide 200 but there may be some differences. My machine as the V3 extruder,. the file is fairly straight forward. You basically run the gcode and it will update your firmware settings. There is no UNDO so I take no responsibility if this doesnt work for you. Read the file first and see if it makes sense.


NB. Somebody posted that the x/y speeds may be set too high so you will need to check that out.

File supplied by Filementa supposedly for the Chitu board but please check before proceeding as I will not take responsibility for any errors.

I think I'd actually pass on this weird technology and bet for any other 32bit open source board combo to feed a RL200XL...

What is the advantage of the arm board over the cheaper rumba board?
