    Hi all,

    Does anybody know if the external thermocouple board sold on the e3d website (http://reprap.org/wiki/ExtThermoCouple_1.0) will work with Smoothie? On their wiki they state it's got to be a MAX31855 chip.

    Hi,
    The board sold here is connected to the analog input of the Smoothieboard just like a thermistor. However you need to make sure the voltage level is converted to temperature correctly. Unfortunately Smoothie does not support this yet.
    If you decide to use max31855 with Smoothie, you cannot use an lcd panel at the same time. I just added that note to the Smoothie wiki.
