This is my custom made lcd+sd card module. I used a DFRobot Keypad Shield and some cheap SD Card module from e-bay. Watch out, this is "raw" : it may or may not work for you, but I got it to work :)

I had to tweak Marlin a bit in order to get it to work, see intructions...

New : Use the repetier firmware. It's really easy to configure.


The hardware part is straightforward (i think). File, cut, make things fit in there, use 4 pieces of M3 threaded rod and some nuts, just screw into the plastic.
Wire everything (make a hole in the back for the wires :) ), write down the pins you used for this (LCD+Buttons+SD Card).

NEW: Software part
Use Repetier, and read the lcd configuration part, it's really easy. :) I'll upload my files when I get back home

Hi, Let me see if I understand. You have 1 Arduino Mega with the LCD + Keyboard Shield connected to 1 Arduino Mega + Ramps 1.4 + 4 or 5 Pololu motor drivers??? If not, can you describe your wiring setup??? Thanks.

I also have an arduino mega, i been trying to fix up the firmware but i been getting compiling errors. do you have your firmware changes uploaded anywhere? is there a way for me to get a copy?

Just use some free pins on your ramps. I'm using an arduino mega, so I don't really know which pins are available on your setup. If I remember correctly you can configure all that...

Hey Im trying to set up my screen, which pins do i use with ramps 1.4?
