@burdickjp you would probably start with this configuration lineardelta.hal and lineardelta.ini, like here: https://github.com/machinekit/machinekit/tree/master/configs/ARM/BeagleBone/BeBoPr%2B%2B/Pepper and modify to your needs. @strahlex has a complete python setup which I’m not familiar with.
(that is to say the setup in itself)

@luminize Thank you! I'm familiar with setting up LinuxCNC hardware. I have a Sieg KX3 running on LinuxCNC. I'm curious what features are available through Machinekit, and how they compare to Marlin or Sailfish.

@burdickjp w.r.t. arduino firmware, the calibrating is a tad different. This unfindable link might be some help (esp setting home switch offsets and delta radius) http://www.machinekit.io/docs/setting-up/lineardelta-FDM-printer/
Here is also a more recent link to fdm related stuff @strahlex has been working on
I think all features are available, some might be tad different. Been a while since I looked at Marlin/repetier. No temp PID autotube, no auto bed leveling (instead do a proper build is my take).
