I managed to sort out most of the bugs. I am up and printing now

All the help I can get would be appriciated. I recently purchased a ANYCUBIC(Generic Kossel Mini) 3d Printer off aliexpress. I have the assembly complete which was not too bad, only took 5 hours. Before I go any further I would like to point out that I am a complete novice to 3d printing. After assembly I verified everything was correct including all conections boards, stepper drivers, end stops, ect.

The printer comes with no firmware installed. The manaul with all the photos that was helpful in building the printer was useless for the next part. It named the programs to install as if they came with the printer which they did not. I downloaded the arduino software and drivers to connect to the printer. I downloaded the lastest Marlin firmware and uploaded it to the printer.

Here is a quick Youtube video, sorry about the quality it was taken with my phone

So here are my Issues:

1. The LCD controller lights up but does nothing, it is currently useless
2. Homing does not work, or work correctly - Only Z motor moves up
3. I cannot move any of the motors down only up
4. When I use the M119 command it tells me min’s are all triggered. I do not believe I should have mins triggers active on this printer. Also note their is no auto leveling with this kit.

Any help would be greatly appriciated as I am new to this and at this point kinda lost. I did try many options i researched online for the lcd control panel such as remove the comment for the item below and import the recommended Lib file


All this did was make the lcd brighter and send static noise through the speaker.

Update - I hade to change the following settings in Marlin from -1 to 1 for MAXTEMP error to go away

#define TEMP_SENSOR_0 1
#define TEMP_SENSOR_1 1

You did get the delta-specific firmware version, right?

Modify these settings to un-trigger your endstops. Or put some jumper wires on your min endstop connectors.
const bool X_MIN_ENDSTOP_INVERTING = true; // set to true to invert the logic of the endstop.
const bool Y_MIN_ENDSTOP_INVERTING = true; // set to true to invert the logic of the endstop.
const bool Z_MIN_ENDSTOP_INVERTING = true; // set to true to invert the logic of the endstop.

Motor behaviour is correct, it won’t let you “ram into” a triggered end stop, so if the end stop is not connected, it counts as triggered, and it won’t let you move down.

I have everything working so so now. I just need to calibrate the printer. I am trying to calibrate it using M666 in Pronterface but it doesnt seem like it wants to take the changes I input using M666

I have the LCD display working now however I have a MAXTEMP error now and did not before Could it be something in the marlin firmware all of a sudden that I used to get the lcd working.

Hi there, I recently bought the Anycubic Mini Kossel as well, and I am having a horrible time of getting the firmware running properly on mine. When I do auto home, the whole thing comes crashing down into the heat bed, only 2 of the 3 axis moves, without usb power AND 12v power from my 350watt PSU (just running from the PSU), the LCD just constantly blinks on/off, and many more issues.

Would you be able to share your Configuration.h file with me by any chance?

If you want to give me an email address I can send you the firmware I am using, the only thing you will have to adjust is the z height to match your specific build, other then that if you have an anycubic everything else should be fine to use

Sure thing you can send to cjalas222@gmail.com, thanks!

Please, send me too to arduinoxino@gmail.com

Thanx you very much!!!



I have also just finished setting up an AnyCubic Mini Kossel printer. My very first try at 3d printering…

I would appreciate any details you have of the hotend heater and thermistor settings you used, as there is no info on the actual kit included in the box =(

If you are still following this thread, please email a copy of your config file(s) to jon_maguire(at)yahoo.co.uk


I have been trying to put a link to my settings (both Marlin and Repetier) but the post doesn’t want to appear…

Seems to trigger some sort of spam filter (?)

Anyway have managed to beat the system =) and hopefully you can put the url together to my Google Drive folder, which has copies of both the Marlin and Repetier firmwares.

However they are both still being tuned, and in no way the finished article. Personally I like the Repetier fw better, but that’s only my personal preference I guess. Hopefully it will help somebody get started a bit quicker than it did me.

PS. I would like to thank everyone who sent me a copy of their firmware, which helped a great deal in getting started, and without their input I would still be scratching my head.


Hi guys , I have the same printer and the same problem did not send me the frimware and and installed several but the printer goes crazy and does not run the engine extruder , please send me the frimware must go my mail is deivison90@hotmail .com

I have emailed you the firmware, just be sure to measure your max z height and change that value in the configuration.h tab to match

Firmware sent

exactly the same probleme with my kossel anycubic that i just build yesterday pleas send me your firmware Quantumzblue@gmail.com Thank you a lot

Here is a link to the copy of Repetier I am using with my Anycubic Kossel, Hope it helps someone…
