Info: firmware flashing via octoprint, Firmware Updater plug-in

by MrJelle


Didn't find a topic on this yet in this group, so, I figured I'd share. I've attached a screenshot of the settings needed for the Firmware Updater plug-in, after running "apt-get install avrdude -y" on the Raspberry Pi, or otherwise installing avrdude.

In short:

1) Install avrdude through bash.
2) Install Firmware Updater plug-in through bash or through octoprint interface.
3) Enter configuration as shown in screenshot and confirm.
4) Select a hex file from your local device, and hit "flash from file".
5) Wait until the message "Flash successful!" pops up.

Anycubic MAX4 Pro filament sensor error

by rrick

I just received this printer today and when I try to print anything after a little while the printer stops with a filament error and what I do is press OK and then Continue and the printer continues on it's merry way. Is there some way of adjusting the filament sensor on the back of the printer so to prevent this happening and stopping the prints on false alarms ?

new 4max problems

by wolfen99

Did anyone else have a few problems with there 4max right out of the box, My cooling fan and my electronics box cooling fan had there wires crossed, the screen had a big white box showing on the display, and the cooling fan was not working at first, I had to take it off and mess with the wires to get it to work. and I don't know if this is what its suppose to do, but after a print, the bed drops almost all the way down. I also find it to be a pain to add filament when changing colors. it doesn't seem to want to go thru thru the extruder into the hotend very well. Ive had a ender 3 plus a anycubic I3 and I never had any problems loading filament with those. this 4max has a setup that I have not seen before.
