It seems that the recognized manufacturer of printers and components BigTreeTech doesn’t want to stay behind his competitors in electronics development for 3D printers and raises the bar a little more. Some time ago, as you will know if you are regular readers of our blog, BigTreeTech launched a great electronic board called BTT Octopus. In fact, you can read ...

The well-known company Bigtreetech returns again to the market with another powerful electronic board called BTT Octopus, which outperforms its little sister, the SKR GTR. Of all the high-performance electronics that have passed through our hands in 3DWork, such as the previously mentioned SKR GTR or the previous SKR Pro, we have to say that the BTT Octopus has been ...

As you all know if you are a regular visitor on our blog, at 3DWork.io we developed a very interesting tool some time ago to configure and download Marlin firmwares on all types of 3D printers (commercial and custom). This tool is called Marlin Builder, and it consists of two main modules. A module to download firmwares from commercial printers ...

For some time now the SKR series from BigTreeTech have become a benchmark in the sector when we talk about electronic boards for 3D printing. The latest models SKR v1.4 and SKR v1.4 Turbo they have become extremely popular and it is not surprising to see them as standard in new releases of 3D printers that hit the market. However, ...

Currently, the vast majority of 3D printer manufacturers offer us the filament detection function (or lack of it, to be more precise) as something common. This means that when our spool of filament runs out, Marlin automatically stops the current job and offers us the ability to insert another spool without losing our current impression. And although most printers already ...

One of the most important manufacturers of electronics for 3D printing, specifically the company BigTreeTech , surprised us some time ago with a specific electronic board for the massive community of Ender 3 printer users. The name of this board was the SKR MINI E3 BTT and it was launched on the market in its initial version V1.2. This one ...

I recently had to upgrade a 32bit board (MKS Robin Nano de MakerBase) to install a Marlin firmware, specifically version 2.0.1. I usually use sublime and the arduino IDE, but this time I set about doing it with Visual Studio Code and its great extension Platform.io IDE. I had previously heard of it on our Telegram channel, but had never ...

Since I started to “play” in the world of the 3D printers, about 4 years ago, I have always worked with electronics from MakerBase company. There has only been one exception, in the first printer that I bought and that introduced me fully to this world. This printer mounted a proprietary board “Made in Spain”. In the rest of the ...

Recently a colleague sent me a BLTouch / 3DTouch sensor from the Geeetech brand. I usually use optical infrared sensors for my printers, but I wanted to try the BLTouch sensors since none had fallen yet by my hands. So I got down to work for Configure BLTouch with BabyStepping in the last Marlin available today and satiate my curiosity. ...

Recently some users of the Telegram channel were interested in how to configure Marlin 2.0.x and they exposed it in the group. Having seen what I saw I thought, Why not write a complete guide to configure Marlin step by step? It was something that had been on my mind for a long time, since my printers continued to work ...
