MeCreator 2 with GT2560 rev B port to repetier
I have a Geetech MeCreator 2 printer that uses Marlin firmware. I'm trying to switch it over to repetier firmware since all my other printers use repetier. I'm more familiar repetier so when I need to make changes its easier for me.
The MeCreator 2 supposedly uses an ultimaker board layout however not all the pin mappings are correct. My biggest issue at the moment is the Display shows all garbage. Here's some of the info:
Board: GT2560 rev B
Display: REPRAP_DISCOUNT_SMART_CONTROLLER (supposedly)
In the repetier config tool I used "Smartcontroller from RepRapDiscount on a RAMPS or RUMBA board" without success.
Then I tried changing #define UI_DISPLAY_CHARSET to different numbers-still no luck.
My next plan is to change the pin numbers but this may be the wrong road to go down. I believe is the pins used from the Marlin firmware are:
//arduino pin witch triggers an piezzo beeper
#define BEEPER 18
#define LCD_PINS_RS 20
#define LCD_PINS_ENABLE 17
#define LCD_PINS_D4 16
#define LCD_PINS_D5 21
#define LCD_PINS_D6 5
#define LCD_PINS_D7 36
//buttons are directly attached
#define BTN_EN1 42
#define BTN_EN2 40
#define BTN_ENC 19 //the click
#define SDCARDDETECT 38
I'm still working on where to apply these changes to the repetier firmware... Is this a I2C display?
Any help with resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.
