Well the firmware has to be told what kind of thermistor you have if it's not a stock taz. In my case I have a custom extruder and bed design so they use different thermistors than the stock taz. So you have to change the configuration.h file to suit prior to flashing.

Is there a git repository for this firmware? These are great additions and should be tracked! I created a repository here for you: https://github.com/keithjjones/MarlinEnhancementsForTaz Let me know your Github user name and I can give you write access. Thanks for the hard work!

I have a Github user, it's Sebastianv650. But I never used Github for more than download the code and write some comments so I will need some time to look around whats needed to maintain code..

I added you to collaborators on the project. You should have write access. There is no need to update it if you want, just ping me when you have changes, send them to me, and I'm happy to add them to the repository. We can also track issues at Github, which is more manageable.

I created a "devel" branch for development work, and the "master" branch have accepted changes.

Thanks for your hard work!

Marlin 1.1 RC4 was released today :)
Nothing realy new in it, but a lot of bug fixes. For example " #3132: Fix a bad "heating failed" error when starting to reheat a warm extruder", which was quite annoying ;)

The next days are blocked, but I think I will start the TAZ 5 config around next tuesday.

Ah, who cares! It's tuesday..
Here is my RC4, same changes compared to stock as the old one:
.) Baud rate is set to 250000 - be sure to set it back to 115200 when using your printer with Linux!
.) TAZ specific values added (steps/mm, ..)
.) New value in 1.1 "Travel acceleration" set to 1200
.) Enabled FW retraction with my best values for that
.) Enabled SD Support (of course..)
.) Reduced extruder acceleration from 3000 to 2400. 3000 is TAZ 5 default, but thats to high. Extruder is missing steps, resulting in blobs when unretracting. 2400 is the highest safe value for my extruder.
.) Enabled filament change possibility
.) Preheat options for PLA, PETG and ABS
.) All "Lulzbot-specific" changes (only Boot logo and another font, to be precise ;) )

Have fun, at your own risk as always :)

Ok, I updated GitHub with the latest changes and created a branch so you can come back to these changes in the future, if you so desire.

Thanks!
