Configuring of MKS_GEN_L V1.0

  • I've bought a new "MKS GEN_L V1.0" and I'm trying to configure it with Marlin 1.1.X. I changed motherboard in configuration.h from previous:



    #define BOARD_RAMPS_13_EFB 33 //RAMPS 1.3 (Power outputs:Hotend,Fan,Bed)



    to



    #define BOARD_MKS_GEN_L 53 //MKS GEN L.



    I'm getting this error:



    pins.h:268: error: #error "**Unknown MOTHERBOARD value set in Configuration.h**"
    #error "Unknown MOTHERBOARD value set in Configuration.h"
    ^
    In file included from sketch\MarlinConfig.h:42:0,

    MKS_GEN_L V1.0


    can you share the source where are you got source of configuration.h file

    obviously, it is in the marlin folder.

    The motherboard definition in configuration.h should be written like:



    #define MOTHERBOARD BOARD_MKS_GEN_L


    actually the word MOTHERBOARD was missing and there is no need to write 53 //MKS GEN L at the end.



    The number definition is declared in boards.h - you just confused the two files, indeed you should not forget to define the motherboard constant itself. Do note that this is basically a RAMPS board, see pins_MKS_GEN_L.h.
