I got a kossel style delta printer recently with a bad arduino board. I looked around and after talking to friends and others that know the options I swapped to Smoothie. I have the Marlin files from before the board went kaput, so I can pull over a lot of the info, however there is most definitely a reason I'm in school to be a Mech Engineer and not a Comp Sci major, or anything electrical. I can follow along existing programming and maybe do some troubleshooting given sufficient documentation of what the errors are, but I'm not sure how to adjust or build a new config file.
I did some searches, but it seems like the people that had the threads were a bit more advanced in setting these up than I currently am, they answer what would be future questions but not my initial questions. I can't post a link, so put smoothieware.org in front of this.
