DIY Board Fitment/Installation/Wiring

This is a universal DIY 3D printer board. That means it will work on almost any 3D printer, but you must know what you are doing.

Our technical support does not cover selecting/designing/assisting with 3d models to install this part on your printer. Firmware support is covered with DIY Boards like this one and our DIY firmware is included.

Electrical replacement parts usually will require you to splice wires into your existing ones for the part you are replacing (soldering and heat shrinking wire splices is recommended for proper connection).

Some of our universal electrical parts come with bare wire ends or plugs on them. These ends may or may not directly plug into your 3D printer. If they do not, you will need to splice the wires into the existing ones on your 3D printer.

    I’ve been using this board for the past 5 months with Klipper via Mainsail. I have it installed on my Ender 5 Pro which has been converted to corexy(3DFused kit), dual independent z axis, and the revo hemera. I am using z_tilt with ABL with a cast aluminum bed and I get awesome results. Before this, I had Klipper running on the EZboard V2 which was great. I ended up adding my EZboard V1.2 to the mix, as Klipper makes it really easy to have multiple MCUs. I was preparing for the independent z axis drivers by adding the V1.2. Though that all went fine, I ended basically frying the V2 while messing with some fans(at first I didn’t realize this was the case). After troubleshooting with Tim, he recommend the Monster 8 which matched perfectly for my situation. If your planning on using Klipper for a basic setup, then the V2 will work just fine, but if your trying to do independent stuff like the Voron 2.4 then the Monster 8 is a great option.

    Solid reliable controller. Comes with TH3D Marlin firmware. Can’t go wrong even if you don’t need all 8 steppers. This is my standard board now for all my printers.
