Re 3D Printers: How to connect a BBB to a Melzi printer controller board

Hello Forum,

This is a follow up to a question regarding copying the contents of one BBB to another.

I have a BBB that I am trying to connect to the Melzi board in order to operate a 3D printer.
Repetier server has been downloaded onto the Melzi, but the BBB is not able to communicate with the Melzi.

Seeking help with this connection- any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
canis

Hello Forum,

This is a follow up to a question regarding copying the contents of one BBB to another.

Where is that question? Is this somehow in reference to http://elinux.org/BeagleBone_Black_Extracting_eMMC_contents?

Note that for Debian based images it is typically easier just to run the script that writes a flasher image to a microSD card with the contents of the eMMC. I’ve added an “Alternatives” section to the wiki page to try to simplify discovery of that option: http://elinux.org/BeagleBone_Black_Extracting_eMMC_contents#Alternatives

This really isn’t enough information for me to go on. What is involved with a BeagleBone Black communicating with a Melzi?
