Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I really like the stand alone controller. But I can only give it 3 stars because the instructions for installing the firmware update failed to mention that the firmware update isn't compatible with the latest version of the arduino software. After installing the firmware update, the printer's Y-axis wouldn't move at all and the X-axis always only moved to the right. I had to go digging in the support pages for help.
dissatisfied. followed all online instructions, uploaded firmware to motherboard, worked great one time, then never again.
A real time saver, but the documentation, set up and functions are not clear. I have to learn by using it.
