ZONESTAR3D Firmware: Firmware for ZONESTAR 3D printer

But, since I have 2 Raspberry Pis, I really didn’t want to spend another $30 on a device that would be used once (once the bootloader is flashed, it never has to be done again). Ender 3 – Remove the 3 screws on the top of the printer. If you use Linux or a MAC, you will need to use a different setup, but you might get the same results. Now you need to transfer the .bin file to another SD card. You’ll need File Transfer Protocol (FTP) software to move the file from the Raspberry Pi to the SD card. Note that there are separate steps for installing the .hex firmware.

Then, use the small hex key that came with your printer to remove the 3 screws from the Ender 3 control box—this is the box located beneath your bed. With the connections made and the Raspberry Pi powered up, the printer board should be getting power too. The blue LED on the board should be on, and the LCD panel should also be on. The 4.2.x boards would be easier because you can flash the firmware over USB, without any modifiacation.

Hex editors can be used to modify existing hex files or to create new hex files from scratch. Hex editors are used to view and edit the underlying code of files.

When finished, we should have a confirmation message informing us that the build was a success. In my case, I am using a BIGTREETEECH board, where mine is identified as ‘STM32F103RC_btt_maple’. PlatformIO is a cross-platform, cross-architecture, multi-framework IDE for developing embedded download stock firmware systems.

  • Better yet, they adopted the Smoothieware bootloader design, capable of loading firmware files right from the SD card.
  • On the off chance that you own a CubeAnet8, an Anycubic 4MAX, a TronXY X5s, or an Anet AM8, you can download prepared firmware from this awesome website.
  • This allows Windows to recognize the application by name, know where the files are located and run it from anywhere.
  • The linker script of the compiler will reserve Stack and Heap memory accordingly configured and there will be a stack_pointer symbol on your .map file letting you know where it points to.

To compile firmware from source, refer to the developer guide. You can use odrivetool to back up and restore device configurations or transfer the configuration of one ODrive to another one.
