RepRap Panelolu for Delta printers: LCD+Encoder+SDSL card reader for standalone printing

Click on image above for a full resolution view (will open in new window).


The Panelolu is a display and control solution for your RepRap Rostock or other Delta 3D printer. It comes with a simple connector for the expansion header on Sanguinololu; however the ribbon cable can easily be broken out into a number of individual connection for RAMPS etc.Update: This listing is aimed at Delta printer users who are unable to use our Panelolu2 controller for technical reasons. If you have a conventional X-Y-Z printer then please see our listings for the Panelolu2 which has replaced the original Panelolu. (It is supplied fully assembled and tested, has adapter boards so no cable assembly is required, and uses less pins).

The display+encoder combination allows for printing without a computer connected, as well as real-time alteration and saving of firmware settings - a significant advance in usability. Full details are available on our blog, along with assembly instructions. The stl and scad files (so you can print your own case) are available on thingiverse

To access these features with the Sanguinololu requires the ATmega 1284 chip because of the extra memory required. If you have a Sanguinololu with a 644P then you need to upgrade to the ATmega1284P - see this listing for the AT1284. If you already have an ATmega 1284P there is no need to get another - details of firmware changes are on our blog. On request we will supply a brief HOWTO outlining the firmware upload procedure.

The circuit board and LCD headers are supplied unsoldered, but only simple through-hole soldering is required. Please write to us at if you would prefer us to solder the components at an extra cost of £4.00.
