|Brainwave Board Wiring Diagram|
Requirements For Mac and Windows
The brainwave folder needs to be in Arduino right click it (control click for macs) for show package contents. Store brainwave folder in the hardware folder be sure to take the Brainwave file out of the first folder it has trouble seeing out side itself.
Walkthrough (Mac & Windows)
In Ardiuno 1.0.2 set your board. Tools => Board => Brainwave (see image).
Hook the board up to the computer with the tinyUSB press program.
In Tools => serial port the board should be recognized as a COM PORT# (PC) tty.usb modem131 (Mac) select that.
In the sketch open Marlin.pde (I stored this file in firmware in the Brainwave folder so I wouldn't lose it) this will be converted to Marlin.ino afterwards
Set Motherboard to 82 (found in Configuration.h)
Click Verify sketch (check mark symbol)
If there are no error messages
Click compile (arrow symbol)
It should write the firmware directly to your board. To confirm with open Pronterface set the Baudrate: 115200 and see if you can driver the bot around. Motors should spin heaters should warm up, and temperature readings should be accurate.
Pronterface & Slicer
If you haven't installed pronterface or slicer, you will need to. Printrbot.com has the best walkthrough (link below) I strongly suggest you read through the through entire PDF to ease the calibration. (I frequently reference pages 1 and 4 for beginners)
or the individual links:
Never unplug a stepper motor when the board is on, otherwise you'll get a demo of how to replace a fried driver. (I stand corrected Mr. Wilson)
If you have a PC the COM PORT will disappear after the board has been flashed with the correct firmware. In the brainwave Arduino Folder there is a Brainwave.INF file this will allow you board to talk to computer as a COM PORT.
Windows COM Port .INF Walkthrough.
If you are still having trouble connecting to the board via Pronterface, restart the computer and try to connect to Pronterface again. If Pronterface still can't connect, right click "My Computer" select properties and make sure to check the hardware for COM# (click properties is set to the Baudrate to 115200, sometimes it will default to something silly like 9600.
