What is this?
The MKS SGen L V2 is the 2nd gen of 32bit NXP powered boards from MakerBase. MakerBase is a Chinese company that has been around for many years (pre-dating BTT). They make a lot of OEM boards but also these universal boards for 3D printers. These boards are better designed and more reliable than ones from BigTreeTech (like the SKR 1.3/1.4/1.4 Turbo). Their component selection is better than other Chinese boards and they know where they can/cannot make cuts to parts without sacrificing reliability and quality. We use these boards in our custom builds and have tested them for many months with no issues.
These are great boards for the budget-minded DIYer who wants a reliable board without breaking the bank. To make this even easier to setup we’ve made our own Unified 2 DIY Firmware for this board to make setup quicker than standard Marlin while also giving you all the TH3D “touches” that you come to know from our firmware releases. This includes the board, USB cable, and jumpers, we have a full bundle here: MKS SGen L V2 Board Bundle. Technical support is not included from the TH3D help desk but you can add it if you purchase the MKS Board bundle, Community Support is included.
Replacing your control board with a universal one is for people who know what they are doing. This is not recommended for novice users and/or people who have no electrical skills. This does NOT come with technical support. If you require technical support you can purchase it with the board and drivers on the bundle page here: MKS SGen L V2 Board Bundle
