Updating the Firmware

No Comments

Don’t let the cover drop as there’s a cooling fan attached to it which is wired to the mainboard. Just in case, I wanted to be able to revert back to what I currently had running. Note that I’m running OctoPrint on an OctoPi, and that already includes avrdude for stock ROM working with the firmware on AVR microcontrollers. I must add here that the Ender 5 is connected to a Raspberry Pi running OctoPi and OctPrint to do the management of the printing. So, I used the Raspberry Pi to flash the compiled TH3D firmware using the Firmware Updater Plugin, customized for my own needs, well, my customer’s needs. My Client, 3B Fun, ran a Creality Ender 5 PRO (8 bit) for more than a year, non-stop, printed at least 5km of filament, without stopping for any maintenance. Problems occurred when the Ender 5’s hot-end started leaking and dripping plastic all over the print-plate and prints.

One can also use it to identify and configure hardware such as computer hard drives. Device drivers are programs that enable interaction with hardware devices. Device drivers are hardware-dependent and operating-system-specific. OS and other programs can interact with hardware through these drivers and act as translators. In this sense, firmware is a type of software, but the key difference between firmware and software is user friendliness. Software is usually developer-friendly readable code while firmware consists of low-level machine code that isn’t easy to comprehend by humans.

  • This contains EZABL mounts, Gantry leveling Blocks, Solid bed mounts, and Bed Level test files.
  • They also ensure that all components, including peripheral devices, work in harmony, reducing delays and improving performances in PCs, mobile phones, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

Failing that, contact Creality, or Google is your friend. I eventually found out that the Atmel AVR ISP mkII had been used. From there, we can go on to configure automatic bed leveling (see next section). Once you know that the instructions that came with the probe are not for the V2 board, and find the correct instructions, it’s easy. My process here is based on instructions that I found at iFixIt.

It just assumes that it correctly homed and that all the following movements were correctly executed. Before getting started, make sure you have Arduino IDE installed on your computer since it will be required in order to compile the firmware.
