Marlin 2.0.0 Firmware for Anycubic i3

by mbartl

Based on the original config-files that came from Anycubic, I've created new Configuration.h and Configuration_adv.h to make the printer run Marlin 2.0.0.


  • download/use the Marlin branch "Marlin-bugfix-2.0.x" from marlinfw.org
  • originally stepper motor for right Z-axis is connected to E2 output. To use this Firmware, connect right Z to output Z2. This frees the E2 port for future 2nd extruder
  • stepper drivers are configured to be 4988 drivers (same as in original configuration)
  • bed levelling is configured for manual mesh (9 points). Do a pre-calibration like suggested in Anycubic manual, make sure the nozzle is slightly above printbed after Z-home. Preheat hotend and start bed levelling from display knob.
  • Ultrabase installed

This FW works for me and I'm happy to share. Keep in mind that you use it at your own risk.

Best wishes, Michael

0.1mm layerheight printing issues

by madness127

hi, i have have been using my printer for a while now and mostly without any real big issues.
its a bit of a learning curve because its my first printer.

i have done some minor upgrades (ultrabase and teflon filament guide, and cooling fins on the heatbreak.).
the ultraBase gave me a bit of a hard time because i had some adhesion issues afterwards bit that mostly seems to be fixed now.

now the issue i need some help with is this:
i want to run a print at the lowest possible layer height (so i was thinking 0.1 should be no problem)
(trying to print a moon lamp)

and usually my print starts of fine using a raft for added stability.
however after some time i start having extrusion issues and the extruder motor starts skipping.
printing at 210c with 50mm/s

now i have tried printing at various temperatures and the issue doesn't seem to be actual clogging of the nozzle because i can raise the hot-end and feed without issues.
just to be sure i even swapped out the stepper motor with a spare one i got from my supplier.
i also fiddled around with bed leveling and printing speeds (on the printers interface) but the issue seems to persist.

any advise is welcome.
