MKS TFT24 display touchscreen
Description

Details

The 2.4 is the latest and smallest of the mks TFT controllers realease sometime in august 2017. still sporting the stm32f with all the features of it's big brother 2.8/3.2. Its front loading SD slot which appealed to me and it size meant I can embed the interface in a more discrete and compact housing. The small screen seems sharper and more depth to the colours than the 3.2, the screen response is great with ample spacing things dont feel squeezed in, the interface has a real modern glow to it  the SD reader held in place with a tight fit and loads of solder, feels secure. as with all the tfts its a push to eject.
As mentioned above there aint much to configure to get the tfts working but what there is, is critical, so I dig a little deeper here for the common changes.   Its again straight forward and self explanatory that even jinx can do it!!.  Am getting a liking for 32bit we already uploaded the controller firmware as a bin. which never need changing from this point " unless there a belting update or you want to change styles". 
         all we need to tweak is the config file, which can be opened in word pad once the changes are made to setting you just have to save and reset the board.
first set we encounter are:
    main board firmware.
    baud rate                     must match the main board
    sprayer                        vexing they used that term to describe a hotend

the next set which relates to fila change and bed leveling,  I left most as default but for.
>cfg_XPOS:-1               change to 10
>cfg_YPOS:-1               change to 10
>cfg_ZADD:10
      This is where the nozzle will home during filament change or pause with the default it just raises the nozzle. Which is just not clever, as you extrude fila over the print! while priming the hotend so change this.

 below this is further setting for wifi and Function customization of user buttons ,not had a need to use yet!.
        
                     
 
        Not as simple to suggest which is the better screen with mks TFTs hardware wise they well made boards with similar features, it comes down more to which fits the enduser needs.. the 2.4 does appear to have a sharper deeper depth of colour  with its small size and front loading SD slot makes the better option for discrete and compact placing. The 3.2 is ample in size for any controller clearly see it across the room. In addition to the SD slot there a Udisk slot to print of a stick" thou its rear side loading means its going to protrude in any design "unless you mounting on the right side edge of a printer.
   

 A crude test for the RAMPS on AUX 1 "note the placing off the red stripe"



wondered how it is the tft can communicate without having to set it in marlin and dust answers it over at the reprap forum "see the last link for the full take" Packing list:
1pc x  2.4" inch mini LCD Display full color touch screen MKS TFT24 v1.0 for 3D printer
