After configuring sucessfully my printer with this nice software I am not able to change the Marlin version! I keep saying that I did not saved something. But I saved, published, etc.... What do I need to do to update (from 1.1.6 to 1.1.8) please?

Excellent tool! I've been using it a lot to properly set up my hypercube. One question: How can I clear the cached commands in the serial console? There is a lot of mistaken commands I wanted to delete. Thank you !

Try del key before select unused

Sorry for the late reply, it worked. Thanks !


The app is awesome!

Is it possible to load a published config? When i try i get redirected to this page http://lt.rv.ua/mc/?h=localhost:3000 that lists the published configurations. There is a column, headed app, with 'get' hyperlinked to http://localhost:3000/site/50 but that points to a local site that doesn't exist

this link http://localhost:3000/site/50 to the application - it must be opened for properly updating new configuration


which app controls this? Presumably one of the prerequisites for the sip installs a local web server for this to function?

Figured it out, my Chrome windows wasn't showing the horizontal scroll gadget - so i wasn't aware there where extra columns to the far right. One of which is a zip hyperlink


Does it have any internal storage for configuration versions? Somehow it completely overwrote my configuration files with some samples. Just wondering if I can get back to the previous versions.
Another question: how can I share my configuration online?

There are the menu functions for saving in local storage, downloading as zip and publication - just press on the version button

Thank you very much! This helped tremendously when I decided to update from 1.1.3 to 1.1.8.
Really well done!

It is 4th image in preview - you can click on the arrows and slide scrollers

one more thing. what is the "simple 3D tool for positioning printer head in console manager" used for? i just seen it in the list of features.

how can i get info off of my board? my old pc died and i am on a new one. i dont want to resetup my settings.

As I know you couldn't.
But you can get information from it, which might make the commissioning easier upon the re-build
There some g codes, which you can send to the printer.
From about M500 to M503 which will write/read data to/from the EEPROM.
Also M92 will display the current step_per_mm values for each axis.

First, this tool looks REALLY great! I just found it and have to say, that I'll definitely give it a try for my next firmware change!

I'm using Windows 10 with latest updates, installed the last version (2.7.11 at the moment) of marlin-config and noticed two problems:

  • Using an empty folder results in nothing - app disappears and the folder stayds empty, even though I can clone the Marlin Github repo via command line git.exe without any problems.

  • The app opens correctly, if I use a pre-downloaded Marlin clone, but the I'm unable to use the flash button. If I hover over it with the mouse it says PlatformIO is not installed. But on my desktop is the Atom icon and I used the PlatformIO plugin for another Arduino project before.

Perhaps you know a solution for this...

  1. Empty folder must works, but if you run the application with user's rights it can access only to folders with user's rights - just try to create folder no desktop or my documents
  2. Must be installed PlatformIO core and it must works from console - install documentation link appears when you press a compile button

Ah! Many thanks for your fast reply. I'll try folders with different rights. And regarding PlatformIO Core I have to give it a try :) Keep up the good work!

I installed GIT then the setup.2.7.11.exe, but it won't install, complains about GIT must be installed..But i just did that (with all defaults).

Just reinstall the git with default settings!

Finally got it working.. It downloads the latest, but when i try to change to an older one it just throws a white screen at med and it does not load anything. I don't want the latest marlin..
