Re: Guide for using your FelixPrinter on a Linux Host

@Lioric: To my understanding the problem with the baudrate isn't due to the FTDI kernel module, which is supposed to support baudrates upto 1Mbaud, but to the MoNo library which is used by RepetierHost. But I will check later this week, thanks for pointing at this solution. What is your experience w...

Re: Different Oscilator on Felix2.0 electronics

Yes that's what I did. I changed the baudrate to 115K2. With the 16Mhz oscillator this is the ANSI baudrate with the smallest error rating. 230K4 just didn't work properly. I haven't tested if it actually matters if the printer is on 115K2 or 250K. For now 115K2 works fine and I didn't yet have any ...

Different Oscilator on Felix2.0 electronics

Hi, I wonder if it's possible to change the 16Mhz oscillator to a 18.4320MHz or a 14.7456MHz one. I think this will give better support in Linux, as this would enable all standard ANSI baudrates. Which are needed by the Serial I/O layer in MoNo (which is used by the Repetier software) I'm absolutely...

Re: Linux Software?

Hi gskillas,

For your interest I wrote a guide for using linux as a host.
You can find it here: http://www.felixprinters.com/forum/view ... ?f=5&t=277

I also succesfully installed sketchup with import and export stl functionality.
So it's possible ;)

Regards,
Wouter Meertens

Guide for using your FelixPrinter on a Linux Host

This guide is written for Lubuntu 13.04 and a Felix2.0 printer but I assume it will work with the other versions as well. I tried to be so clear and short as possible. I think it's complete. If you have questions or additions please feel free to post them. I think you can almost copy and paste ever...
