Name: MKS TFT24  Touch Screen

 

MKS TFT24 is a colorful touch screen which is used independently on 3d printer.

This display is no need to set mainboard firmware but work together directly.

And it is easy to replace into your logo and edit your local language.

Powerfully,it is capable to wirelessly control 3D Printer and support Cloud printing.

More, it is available to self-define up to 13 commands .

How to assemble with mainboard.

Set the baud rate, ensure both  TFT and controller board are the same.

 

1.MKS Series mainboards

Such as, MKS SBASE,MKS SGEN,MKS GEN,MKS BASE, MKS GEN-L,etc.

(MKS TFT24 is not available with Ramps1.4/1.5/1.6)

Flash firmware to mainboard .( TFT display has updated latest config inside already).

Connect TFT display to AUX-1 of the board.

No need to configure on board firmware,they will work together directly after wire.

The boards need a external 12V power supply.

 

2.Firmware Upgrade

Please copy following documents to the root of SD card.

(Please don't edit the documents name.)

mks_pic        mks_config        mkstft24

Then, plug the SD card to the TFT and power on. It  will update automatically.

 

3.Config

config-1

 

 

4.Bed Leveling

 

Auto Leveling

After the machine assembles with a bed leveling controller, then run leveling on TFT interface.

#The command of auto leveling (G29 is available for Marlin.

While G32 is for  Repetier and Smoothieware)

>cfg_auto_leveling_cmd:G28;G29;

 

Manual Leveling

Manual leveling is good for MB,i3 etc machines. It is available to set 3,4,5 point .

#The point number of manual leveling:(3,4,5 point available)

>cfg_point_number:4

 

5.Filament Replace

It is easy to replace the filament when it runs out.

You are able to set temperature and the speed of filament in-out on config.

As following:

#the speed of filament replacing(mm/min)

>cfg_filament_change_speed:1200

 

#the length of filament replacing(mm)

>cfg_filament_change_step:5

 

#the min temperature of filament replacing

>cfg_filament_limit_temperature:175

Then, here is the steps to replace filament.

1).On printing
pause-----more-----change----in/out-----stop

2).Before start printing
set-----change-----preheat-----in/out-----stop

 

6.Print from Breakpoint

TFT has a one of the excellent features is able to print from Breakpoint.

Below is the way to do it.

Firstly, set target temperature of extruder and heated bed, and then preheat.

Secondly, when preheat ready, go home .(Notice: if power off happens during operating printing from breakpoint, please must home .)

Thirdly, move extruder to the breakpoint which is available to set allowable error.

#Breakpoints continued playing Z-axis error setting

>cfg_breakpoint_z_error:0.2

Fourth, click set, and then click Continue(Means Print from Breakpoint).

After that, choose the file you want.

(If  you pause the printing, and turn the printer off,

then it will resume to print from the pause point after power on.)

 

7.Filament Outage Detecting

Connect detecting switch to PB1 of TFT.

Set configuration to trigger low level or high level available.

 #the level signal of outage detection module PB1(low level:0; high level:1)

>cfg_PB0_PB1_Level:1

 

8. Auto off after Print Finishes

Enable this function on config,and  take concerted with PWC switch.

#whether set machine auto-off after print finishes(auto-off:1; NO:0)

>cfg_print_finish_close_Machine:0

9. MKS WIFI

MKS TFT supports WIFI remote control. Please set configurations.

As follow:

#wifi mode(AP:1; STA:2)

>cfg_wifi_mode:1
 

#wifi name and password

>cfg_wifi_ap_name:MKS_wifi

>cfg_wifi_key_code:makerbase

 

#Dynamic access IP

>cfg_ip_dhcp_flag:1

 

#IP/mask/gateway

>cfg_ip_address:192.168.3.100

>cfg_ip_mask:255.255.255.0

>cfg_ip_gate:192.168.3.1
