    But it seems I did not get a kit for building a 3d printer, but a kit for updating a 3d printer. I've been a little busy with something else, so I haven't looked at it too closely yet.

    Oh. I thought Marlin was the newer update of Sailfish.

    My firmware is so old, ReplicatorG doesn't know what to do with it, so I figure I'll have to ISP it with my AVR programming tools.
