Smoothieboard 4X missing SD card

(jh628_SW) #1

I built a delta printer from scratch and just bought a Smoothieboard 4X from Uberclock. The board arrived without the microSD card and Uberclock has not responded to my emails. I thought I would try these forums for help.
Using the sd-card page on this website (apparently I can’t post links), I see a list of the files that should be on the SD card that did not come with my board:

Files that may be found on the SD Card


  • Copy of firmware file, currently flashed onto the smoothieboard.
    config or config.txt
  • One or the other, not both, Defines smoothieware configuration options needed for the attached device.
  • Created when the g-code M500 is played. See supported-g-codes.
  • Played on startup of smoothieboard. Can be used to initialize the smoothie driven device.
  • Firmware update file, if present is flashed onto the smoothieboard, and renamed to FIRMWARE.CUR after the update completes.

I just can’t figure out how to get the on_boot.gcode file.

Are there any other files that need to be on the card? I am very new to all of this and I want to make sure I at least have what was supposed to come with the board.

Hey there.

You *only* need the “config” file.

It can be a good idea to also put the most recent firmware on there but it’s not necessary.
