RECOMMENDED FOR QUICKEST SETUP: If you want to try our web compiler that is in BETA head over to http://ezfirmware.th3dstudio.com
This firmware ONLY supports our EZBoard at this time with the printers listed on the EZBoard Product page. Other machines/boards will be added later on. Please use the Unified Firmware U1.R2 for all other machines/boards.
Before flashing please read our article on MicroSD cards and how they should be formatted: https://www.th3dstudio.com/knowledgebase/ezboard-flashing-firmware-microsd-recommendations/
Using a SD card in a format or size listed on the above article may result in your board being bricked. Be patient when flashing and do not cycle power for at least 30 seconds.
All releases with change-log available on our GitHub Release Page here: https://github.com/houseofbugs/TH3D-Unified-U2.R1/releases
Use the ATOM IDE or VSCode to compile this firmware. See the included VSCode file in the EZBoard Installation folder or if you want to use ATOM see the info below.
PLEASE NOTE: All EZBoards ship with a test firmware that is for testing the boards. You must flash firmware for the machine you are installing it in for the board to work.
BL Touch Notes: Do NOT use a Pin 27 or EZOut board when using a BL Touch with the EZBoard. This can damage the board and will not be covered under warranty. Use the SERVO header on the EZBoard for connecting a BL Touch. Refer to the BL Touch installation materials to match up the 3 pins (VCC, GND, and Signal) to the respective pins on the SERVO header on the EZBoard. Typically on genuine BL Touch sensors the wiring is as follows: Red – 5V, Brown – GND, Yellow/Orange – SIG. If you have different colors then refer to the documentation that came with your sensor or contact the company you purchased the sensor from for the correct pinouts as some BL Touch clones use different color wiring.
If you are using the Dual Z Motor adapter here is a printable file to put over the adapter board to prevent shorting: https://www.th3dstudio.com/downloads/TH3DDualZAdapterPressOnCase.stl
