ADVi3++ 5 User Manual - Introduction

ADVi3++ is an alternative and better firmware for Wanaho Duplicator i3+ printers and their clones like the Monoprice Select Plus. It is (almost) based on the latest stable release of Marlin ( and adds some new specific features. It has the following features when compared to the stock Wanhao firmwares:

  • Based on Marlin 2.0 (stock Wanhao firmwares are based on Marlin 1.x)
  • New redesigned LCD screens
  • Access on the LCD display to more printer parameters like Feedrate, Acceleration and Jerk settings
  • Tuning of the extruder motor
  • Temperature graphs
  • 5 preheat presets
  • 10 points manual bed leveling
  • BLTouch (including BLTouch Smart v3) support with automatic bed leveling
  • Display of messages (M117 code) and progress bar from external software such as OctoPrint (Detailed progress plugin for example)
  • Advanced Pause (M600 support)
  • A complete and up to date User Manual


Currently, ADVi3++ is compatible with:

  • Wanhao Duplicator i3 Plus (Bi3Plus)
  • Monoprice Maker Select Plus (15711)
  • Monoprice Maker Select Plus “Euro” (21871)
  • Monoprice Maker Select Plus “UK” (24165)
  • Aldi Cocoon Create Touch (HE161192)
  • Aldi Balco 3D Touchscreen
  • Microcenter PowerSpec WanHao Duplicator I3 PLUS (422204)
  • Wanhao Duplicator i3 Plus Mark II ( Note: Power-loss recovery is not implemented
  • Aldi Balco 3D Printer (HE180021)

Thanks to Dylan xKoldx and weidercs for their forks supporting BLTouch. Thanks to Matt Cowell SureshotM6 for the fork supporting M600 and head parking.

Thanks you to Leo Lüker (Silverquark) for his i3plus+ project. I take many ideas from his code. But the project is no more active and I do not like the screens (personal taste) so I have created the ADVi3++ fork. It is technically a fork of Marlin, not of i3plus+.

Thanks to MarlinTeam for their great work.
