GT 2560 V3 - what connector for Extruder pin / heat bed

Post by onki » Wed May 15, 2019 9:33 pm

Hi,

The GT2560 V3 sounds like a nice controller board for my new printer project. It is still just a 2560 but it will be fine to start with.

What connector types do I need for the 12 pin Extruder connector and the 6 pin hesat bed ceonnector?
Is the V3 TMC2310 compatible without board layout modifications (are the SPI connections done)?

Is the 6th stepper section usable since the 12 pin connevtor seems to be missing?

Best regards
Onki

Hi, the 12 pin Extruder connector and the 6 pin heat bed need match it connecter wiring,and I'm afraid it does not match the board.

Hi William,

Of course the wiring must match. I will do the cable by myself. Therefore I need to know the connector type (Molex, JST, etc.) of this one so that I can try to get it somewhere.
But at the moment my focus is more on the GTM32 board because of the 32bit µC. But this board seems to use the same connectors.

Best regards

Hi, I think you said TMC2130,it can use in the basic skills,and I don't determine what you need, the drawings are open source and you can view them.

Hi,

The GTM32 as well as the little 2560 brother are using a black 12 pin connector at the extruder ports which is soldered to the mainboard.

If I want to use this board in a different printer I need the counterpart of this connector to be able to properly connect the extruder (i don't want to remove them from the board).
To be able to make such a cable I need to know what brand (Molex, Tyco, JST, etc.)and type of this black connector is required to create a proper cable.

Since marlin is not yet implemented what kind of firmware is run ning on that board (reprap etc.) and will this work with a touch screen and CoreXY printer.

Best regards

OK - thanks,

I guess I found the correct counterpart meanwhile:

It is from the Molex Nanofit series.
