I have figured out the MKS Base v1.4 pinout and wanted to share.
Should be the same for v1.3 to v1.5 though the placement for XS3 (pins A11 and A12) and SERVOS (D11and D12) are placed in a different area on the board.
A common problem when comparing to other RAMPS pinouts is not being able to find SERVOS3 (pin 4) or SPINDLE_LASER_PWM_PIN (pin 44), they do not have headers (connectors) and are used for controlling E1 stepper driver.

Hope this helps someone else.

extruder motor

by Old-Steve

me again...

So I have the Anycubic Kossel Linear Plus and now it is running Smoothiware on an MKS Sbase 1.3 and TFT screen.
I know I know I'm a bad man I'm a traitor and now I don't have anywhere else to go for help.
It is printing better than it ever has with one minor exception.
When I pause the print to change colors, the extruder won't really start up again. It acts like the filament is binding. It moves a little forward, clicks, then moves back. It will do this even with the extruder lever held open with a clip I made. I can open the extruder lever and force filament through by hand. But then it starts the skipping thing. No good.
Also, when I pause, change filament, then hit resume, the extruder backs up fast and a lot. When I want it to resume. I have to force feed the filament through again.
But when all is said and done, it won't push filament after a pause.
Then the next print is ok, I don't have to power cycle the printer, it just starts working again. So the bottom line is that I can't change colors mid print on this delta. Something in the pause routine in Smoothiware I think.
I tried 2 routines, pause and change filament, neither work.

Idunno, that's why I'm here. Any ideas?
