To set it up, i need to update the firmware, to support auto-bed levelling. Does anybody have the version for the autoleveling enabled? Or at least the original firmware with the cofiguration. Hi astronauti. It wont have Auto-bed levelling enabled with your sensor specifically, but the firmware is setup for ABL with the Inductive sensor that TronXY can provide, which is just attached to the Z-Stop Min sensor input. If you attach your sensor there, you should be able to get going straight away without any code updates.
If you do grab that source though the relevant configuration starts at Line of configuration. Thanks for the github. I received another one from Tronxy aliexpress which seems to be for the zonestar. I have some problems flashing the firmware. It worked once with the tronxy aliexpress version, but the LCD didnt work, x-axis, z-axis was inverted trying to get out of the volume. Already trying to get it working for the whole day. Mine came out of the box without the bootloader, so the first thing I needed to do was hookup an ICSP used a spare Arduino Mega I had laying around and flashed the Sanguino Arduino clone the Melzi uses bootloader.
Now the IDE picks it up fine and uploads code natively. Also make sure you dont have any other software running, like Repetier, which might be trying to talk to the board. I think it sees the Melzi as a proper board. When I reset it at the right time it flashes something, but with an error message like "programmer is out of sync" and at the end when it is checking it shows inconsistency. How can I tell that it sees it as a proper board? Is there a way to tell that it doesn't have a bootloader?
Do you have a tutorial for flashing the Sanguino bootloader? You can burn the bootloader by simply selecting your programmer, attaching it to the Melzi board which should not be powered on and hitting Burn Bootloader with the Sanguino board selected. This WILL overwrite part of the Marlin firmware however flashing it via hex has overlapping offsets to the Arduino bootloader so youll need to load the Marlin code onto it via the Arduino IDE before you can use it again.
The programmer is out of sync error could be a number of things. It really doesnt sound like the firmware running, or possibly your PC connection is too stable. Given you have a ICSP programmer you cant really go too wrong, you can recover from most things, but just be aware of any problems might keep you from using your printer. You might also get a bit more specific help in the Reprap forums.
Got the programmer and burned the bootloader.
Seems like i can now flash the firmware properly. However it seems like something is broken with the melzi board. The x-axis driver only moves in one direction tried sticking in the y axis motor and this moves then as well only in one direction and the display isn't working. Also the main mosfet for the power input gets very hot while idle. If you ruled out the servo's on the X then it would mean either a bad onboard connector or driver circuit, so its probably a busted Melzi board.
Honestly I havent used anything else, this TronXY is my first printer, but ive been doing a lot of reading, and the Melzi isnt considered brilliant around the various communities, and I would agree on the quality being a bit poor.Looking for more?
My 3D printer, a DaVinci 1. I needed some wire tie downs and was iterating through the design when I noticed that the extruder was making these clicking noises and then stopped extruding. I was able to disassemble the hot end and clean out all the gunk by soaking it for an hour or two in acetone.
Afterwards I barely managed to print 16 of the tiedowns to finish the project a future post when I verify that it works. The extruder guide wheel and idler had worn out and was not applying the correct grip to the filament creating that clicking noise.
Check out the bur in the picture below, my guess is that hours of forcing hot ABS plastic though the brass nozzle caused that bur. This is where I ran into a problem, all the hotends required a custom mount that you print using a 3D printer, you can see my dilemma here.
Without a 3D printer or a machine shop I would not be able to repair my printer. Enter the inexpensive 3D DIY printer kit. Plus I figured after the cost of a new hotend I had my eye on the E3D v6 and the cost of using Shapeways to print the adapter mount I could get a second inexpensive printer. I believe this is a clone of the Anet A8 which in turn is a clone of the Prusa i3. Twelve hours later after messing up the Z axis motor mounts three times, having to adjust for the deformed X axis mounts, and wire wrangling I ended up with my first print.
Before going further into printing I want to highlight a few problem areas I experienced with this printer, the first is the Z axis lead screws. The kit included 3D printed parts that connect the X axis to the Z axis. I am not a fan of these parts. They are visibly warped on the top and I found after assembly this caused the Z axis to bind on the lead screws. To compensate for this I loosened up the lead screw nuts while the printer was assembled and then placed plastic shims from junk mail credit cards and gift cards underneath the nuts before tightening them up making sure that I could still turn the motors easily by hand.
Also I do not like that the Z axis relies on the two stepper motors staying in step, maybe the lead screws could be attached with a timing belt underneath? The wing nuts to level the bed are painful and annoying to use. These could be 3D printed and there are plenty of YouTube videos and forum posts outlining this but I prefer propper turned parts for adjustment nuts.
Last is the power supply. It is a very DIY hack way of mounting and wiring. The line connections are in the open only covered by the plastic door on the terminal block and there is no power button. This will need to be modified soon before I shock myself or develop repetitive injuries from crawling under the table to unplug the printer.
Plus that will be the fun of this printer, modifying it to make it better. Overall with only the included parts from the kit I was able to assemble a working printer.
Two hours later and I had this cool little boat, not bad for its first print. There are definitely areas to improve and adjustments to be made, I figured out afterwards the setting for the cooling fan that may have helped with the smoke stack, but overall I was happy that the initial results were so positive. After the success of its first print I was confident enough to move the printer over to my desktop and connect it to that system. The laptop I initially used runs Ubuntu Linux and I had no issues with connecting to the printer, not so with my desktop running Windows If you are having issues give this a try, also experiment with the Allow command buffering and Communication timeout settings.
Dont forget to make sure that the baud rate is set for the machine, mine is set to This can be set when choosing other as the profile in the Configuration Assistant or by editing the process settings.This is the firmware and flashing instruction for the Tronxy PMA with auto level.

Some features have been added by: Lampmaker, Bradley Feldman, and others The default baudrate is This baudrate has less jitter and hence errors than the usual baud, but is less supported by drivers and host-environments. Marlin has look-ahead. This is only possible, if some future moves are already processed, hence the name. It leads to less over-deposition at corners, especially at flat angles.
Slic3r can find curves that, although broken into segments, were ment to describe an arc. Marlin is able to print those arcs.
The advantage is the firmware can choose the resolution, and can perform the arc with nearly constant velocity, resulting in a nice finish. Also, less serial communication is needed. If your gcode contains a wide spread of extruder velocities, or you realtime change the building speed, the temperature should be changed accordingly. Usually, higher speed requires higher temperature. You can leave it by calling M without any F.STARTING 3D PRINTING - TRONXY FILIAMENT LOAD AND PRINTOUT
If the target temperature is set manually or by gcode to a value less then tempmin, it will be kept without change.
Ideally, your gcode can be completely free of temperature controls, apart from a M S T F in the start. It will enable you to realtime tune temperatures, accelerations, velocities, flow rates, select and print files from the SD card, preheat, disable the steppers, and do other fancy stuff.

Tronxy P802 firmware (cofiguration.h)
In order to do so there was a fair amount of research and work involved to get what I considered a desirable outcome. My interest in posting this information is first and foremost to continue to develop the community support for TRONXY printers as in the past the popularity of the Anet A8 was largely based on it's community support.
Given that we are finding TRONXY printers are somewhat supplanting the Anet A8 in it's 3d printer space due to it's price and availability, I believe it is everyone's interest to grow the community and offer up assistance when able. I alone can only provide so much support in this regard and I by no means consider myself an expert but hopefully the information I can provide will offer others assistance.
As for a mount design I offer up this one as the basis for this endeavor. The vast majority of the effort is in sensor connection, firmware settings, programming and calibration hence the reason for this narrative.
The following posts will go through the process in phases. Depending on what the TRONXY printer you received came with and what you wish to achieve these phases may or may not apply. Understand I have hands on experience only with PE arriving with a Melzi 2. Although much of the information will be adaptable to other applications, this is system I was directly working on. Before getting into the discussion it is important to note that as a result of developments in the Arduino IDE version compatibility issues pose many challenges.
I will attempt to ensure that I mention what version of the IDE is being used when working with firmware. In some instances using the wrong version for which the firmware was written will fail to compile. Other instances may pose communication issues while others will pose challenges in terms of where to import libraries.
Welcome to the open source free software world. Lastly I offer this information as just that; information. I hold no responsibility or accountability for any damage you may do to yourself or your equipment by utilizing or applying this "information" in any way. The possibility exists to brick, burn or otherwise completely destroy your hardware as well as having your printer go absolutely haywire and self destruct into a pile of useless rubble.
It may even elect to go terminator on your neighbors cat. Before even considering the boot loader you have to ask yourself whether you are able to achieve your auto level requirements using the existing firmware the printer was shipped with.
If the answer is no then you have to see if your printer will accept uploaded code.This page is a setup guide for the TronXY 3D printer series. Most makes and models are included here and each specific model with its special intricacies is described as follows. The differences for these printers is largely build volume and construction. The subtle changes for each one will be listed when they matter.
Otherwise the setup is nearly the same. Le istruzioni su come costruire questa stampante possono essere qui qui. Now the fun begins. If you have a Z-Limit Switch on your printer.
Follow the next steps. If not, skip to part B. Some printers may not come with Z-Limit switches, or they may not behave as expected. This is not a problem as it can be overwritten in software. Thanks erikkallen for his wonderful blog instructions on how to set this up. If this helped you, make sure to send him a thank you. After making sure your print head is offset the correct distance from center, the next most important thing is to ensure bed level.
Without doing this you'll get sideways prints or the biggest problem, poor bed adhesion. These almost always come back to one problem that is easily solved. Bed Level. Sign In Don't have an account?
