Newest version firmware for Arduino @ this time is 1.0.6, here:
http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software#toc2
Not the newest version firmware for Marlin here:
https://github.com/RichCattell/Marlin/tree/master

But if you want RichCattell's latest then that would be his development branch with auto calibratin here:
https://github.com/RichCattell/Marlin/tree/development



Download which ever one you want, use these downloaded versions to replace the ones in the next download you will need, under the video Russ made, here:
http://open-source-energy.org/?topic=871.0
Unzip this last download, then replace the older versions of Arduino and Marlin to the new versions.

View the video Russ has posted here:
 http://open-source-energy.org/?topic=871.0 
go to 43.44 minutes into the video where Russ starts talking about the frimware-software package, follow his instruction.

Now that you hopefully have all this done correctly you will need to replace two files in the main folder for the delta style 3d printer, if you are not building the delta style printer, say the Medel Max or one of the Prusa style 3d printers, you will not need to change these two files, just leave the folder as is, here's how to change the two files:

 When you open an Arduino sketch for Marlin, look for the "example configuration directory" it should be in the main folder at the top of the listing, same folder as the Marlin pde and ino files would be in.

Click on the  "example configuration directory",  there you will find the "Delta configuration", open it,  copy the new configuration.h and configuration_adv.h files, use these two files to replace the two original configuration.h and configuration_adv.h files found in the main folder, same folder as where the Marlin pde and ino files were/are found. Once this is done, you will be ready to set up your delta style printer, open the sketch Marlin pde, then the configuration.h tab to begin defining your printer.

Hope this helps all who are pulling their hair out trying to get their printers up and running, Jeff. :D

Auto leveling is included in this same package, so you should be good to go. :cool: :D :P

Just keep your old setup and configuration, incase you have to revert back to it. But it is all worth the effort. You might even have to use some of your old configuration settings for the new configuration, so it would be a good idea to print out your old setup, compair each line of the configuration.h, your old one will not have configuration_adv.h.
