    So RC6 of Marlin was released and I tried to merge into my branches and had problems because of... stuff...
    I deleted all my repos, saved the settings but want to start over again.

    I though about what to setup, how to setup but to maintain all possibilities is hard and time consuming.
    I can't decide what to do, you must :).

    All I am gonna setup will be based on RC6 but there are so many ways now:
    1. RC6 with Greg's Pro settings
    2. RC6 with Greg's Dual settings
    3. RC6 with Greg's Dual Hybrid settings (is there a Pro actually?)
    4. RC6 Pro ABL
    5. RC6 Pro MBL
    6. RC6 Dual ABL
    7. RC6 Dual MBL
    8. RC6 Hybrid Pro ABL
    9. RC6 Hybrid Pro MBL
    10. RC6 Hybrid Dual ABL
    11. RC6 Hybrid Dual MBL
    12. RC6 Hybrid Pro Titan ABL
    13. RC6 Hybrid Pro Titan MBL
    14. RC6 Hybrid Dual Titan ABL
    15. RC6 Hybrid Dual Titan MBL
    16. RC6 Hybrid Dual Titan Mirrored ABL
    17. RC6 Hybrid Dual Titan Mirrored MBL
    ABL = Auto bed leveling
    MBL = Mesh bed leveling

    So the question is ABL or MBL? Mirrored might only concern me. You could add some more...

    I don't wanna maintain more than 3 to 5 branches...

    My votes are:
    • RC6 Hybrid Dual Titan Mirrored MBL (I need this at the moment)
    • RC6 Hybrid Dual Titan MBL (well maybe I switch to default style too for convenience)

    Why not write a configuration script, if you really want to offer that? Could be one branch for all then and much easier to maintain.

    I vote for stock 1.0 Pro and 1.0 dual as a lot of people will never upgrade. I'll at least start with stock dual and wait a while before going for any titan upgrade.

    I question the mesh bed level a bit. If the glass is not flat maybe that should be remedied? So I vote for ABL.

    RC6 Hybrid Dual Titan MBL

    That's my personal preference. And I imagine RC6 Dual BB for folks who don't upgrade.

    Why are you using mirrored, out of interest?

    Or simply a tutorial on what parameters to modify the Marlin code for the BigBox. Then people can adjust themselves, while wait for the BigBox team to release their official firmwares. By the way @Greg Holloway @Sanjay why are the official firmware so delayed? 3 release candidates behind now? RC3 looks very buggy and of a much needed update.

    Maybe you don't need to post both ABL/MBL to save you time. A quick rundown for people on how to adjust that. Seems easy to do as it more or less just uncommenting some lines of code.

    What are the differences between them? Only a single config file? Or are there different patches for the leveling and stuff?

    I nice overview of the parameters we need to change would be more than enough for me. Should have been some kind of HAL-layer for printer configurations.

    I vote for:

    7. RC6 Dual MBL, reason: since not all Dual users will upgrade to Hybrid, I am kind of waiting for Dual Direct Titan, even I bought the upgrade already. Not a fan of Bowden model. Anyway I am using RC3 and nothing wrong so far. So just ignore it :D.

    17. RC6 Hybrid Dual Titan Mirrored MBL ( Will it work on your lifting design ?), @Alex9779 What do you mean by 'Mirrored' is Right Nozzle (t0) and Left Nozzle is (t1), am I correct ?

    Btw, what kind of improvement in RC6 since RC3 ?
