Hi guys, I’m having a bit of a difficulty updating the firmware on the mainboard of my ‘Aldi 3d Printer Touch’. I’ve followed alot of the instructions that I’ve found on this site so far and I’m still quite stumped. I’ve flashed my LCD screen fine with ADVi3++ 4.0.6, but when I try to update the main firmware using Cura it fails halfway through saying “Firmware update failed due to an unknown error”. I am using ADVi3pp-HE180021-Mainboard-4.0.6.hex which I believe is correct for my printer. I have yet to try a different cable but I will aquire one soon.
I have followed the instructions to use Arduino IDE and I have managed to upload the sketch of the 4.0.6 firmware using the usb cable that came with the printer - albeit I’m not quite sure what I am doing here. I do seem now to have to installed the mainboard firmware, but when i go to home the printer none of the end stops are working when pressed, so i have to switch the printers power off to prevent it trying to eat itself.
Has anyone got any ideas why Cura is failing to update the firmware? And/or any ideas how I can upload a correct firmware for my printer via Arduino?
As it currently stands ADVi3++ looks very cool, I’m just dissapointed I can’t use it yet! Any help would be appreciated.
