Hello Everyone,

Today we're going to explain on how to upgrade your Anet A6 with an Minitronics(32bit) controller.

First of we are going to look at the PDF with how we are going to connect the wires.
Click here to view the PDF

The first thing we notice here is we are going to split up cables to multiple connectors.
This are the cables we are going to split up:

  • 5V
  • GND
  • MOSI
  • SCK

 The second thing we should notice is that we are using 2 cs pins to differentiate the traffic going to the LCD and SD card reader.
To fully use this you would need to load up the Minitronics with this firmware: Click here to download the firmware
This is a fully pre-configured firmware wich you can use with the Minitronics and the Anet A6 hardware.

Once you have uploaded the firmware it's time to connect all the wires,
you can connect all the wires according to this datasheet: Click here to open the datasheet.
Once you have done that we can start adding the wires listed in this datasheet: Open the Anet-Minitronics datasheet

Once you have done all the above steps you should be able to turn the printer on and see the display light up and show the boot screen,
If so congratulations you have managed to upgrade your Anet A6 controller to an Minitronics Controller!

If you are still having any issues check your wiring to make sure they are correctly connected.
Aswell you shouldn't forget the 10K resistor between the 5V and the CS of the LCD.

Thanks for reading until the next time!

Hello Everyone,

Today we're showing how you can make your own multi-color filament using this Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3565827

We start by slicing the size wich fits on our printing service,
slice with 0.15 layer height.
Then we can start the print using our first desired color.
Once we hit layer height 0.85 we pause the print and lift the nozzle up.
Then we insert the second color and resume the print. if done correctly you will end up with your own multi-color filament.

We hope you will enjoy this little trick in making nice and cool multi-color prints,

A long overdue improvement on our website has finally arrived! We decided to retire the filament browser and replace it with a much simpler page. You can now find your favorite filament in just a few simple clicks. Either browse by brand or start with a diameter, and select a material. Pretty straightforward with a much better overview.

If you encounter any issue, please let us know.

Hello,

today we're going to explain how to upgrade your CR-10S Pro with an E3D V6 Hot end.

Firstly print this E3D v6 Mount: 

Then we can start by unscrewing the metal fan holder.
Then we get access to the place where we can remove the old hot end.

Once you have unscrewed the old hot end you can start the assembly of the E3D V6 hot end, for wich you can follow this guide:.

After you have assembled the new hot end we can start mounting it, for this we need our printed part.
Firstly we will screw in the backplate of our printed part,
we do this upside down so we have more space for our print.

After that you can place in the new E3D V6 hot end and place over the front piece we printed. Screw it tight so you cant turn the E3D V6  hot end.

After that you need to recalibrate the leveling sensor, You can use this guide for that:
