How to fix Marlin Error: Build environment ‘linux_native’ is incompatible with BOARD_RAMPS_14_EFB

Problem:

When compiling Marlin for simulation, you see an error message like

Error: Build environment 'linux_native' is incompatible with BOARD_RAMPS_14_EFB. Use one of these: mega2560, mega1280

Solution:

Open Marlin/Configuration.h and change the line

#ifndef MOTHERBOARD
  #define MOTHERBOARD BOARD_RAMPS_14_EFB
#endif

to use the BOARD_LINUX_RAMPS board:

// Choose the name from boards.h that matches your setup
#ifndef MOTHERBOARD
  #define MOTHERBOARD BOARD_LINUX_RAMPS
#endif

Even if the error message shows that you should use mega2560 or mega1280, you need to use BOARD_LINUX_RAMPS!

How to readout current PID values on Ender 3

Run

M503

which will show all EEPROM configuration values, among them these lines:

M301 P29.34 I3.58 D60.08
M304 P427.57 I84.18 D542.91

Note that the M301 line represents the Hotend PID values whereas M304 represent the Bed PID values.

Ender 3 MicroSwiss Hotend PID parameters

These are the Hotend PID parameters for my Ender 3 using a MicroSwiss hotend with a MicroSwiss direct drive Extruder:

Marlin Configuration.h setting:

#define DEFAULT_Kp 29.34
#define DEFAULT_Ki 3.58
#define DEFAULT_Kd 60.08

Set PID values using G-Code and save to EEPROM:

M301 P29.34 I3.58 D60.08
M500

M301 P29.34 I3.58 D60.08
M500

How to run PID autotune

If you want custom values, run PID autotune like this:

  • Start with a completely cooled down Hotend
  • Run M106 P0 S255 to turn on the first fan
  • Run M106 P1 S255 to turn on the second fan
  • Run PID autotune using M303 E0 S210 C8

then proceed like shown above.
