Up-to-date Marlin firmware for the Aurora A5

by mgilardi

Hi all,

Stay tuned for more A5 firmware updates, we are actively working to get this open source. Currently working on getting the filament sensor to unload and load as expected.

I love feedback and collaboration, so please feel free to help it along!

https://github.com/GilardiLabs/Marlin/tree/JGAurora-A5

EDIT: We've released a solid firmware. See link above.

***NOTE: Please make sure to have a backup of your firmware (or JG's original HEX file) before proceeding with this. I take no responsibility for errors or issues, though I am here to help if I can. :)

What kinds of filaments can I use?

by repulsivefrog

I know the standard statement, which is PLA, ABS, and WOOD. I want to know if I can use other filaments. Such as metal, PETG, etc. and if you have successfully used them, can you share your Cura profile settings for them. (I am using the version of Cura supplied with the printer as I mess up when trying to do the newer ones.)

radial fan vibration -> bad print cooling

by DJGummikuh

For some time now my radial fan used for print cooling is rather loud which prevents it from reaching the expected RPM, greatly reducing the print cooling. This causes extensive sagging and overall bad print quality.

Can you point me to a viable alternative? I googled around and found a set for the aurora a5 for both hotend fan and print fan but this appeared overpriced and I don't even need the hotend fan.

I did see some modifications somewhere that used radial fans that stuck out to the back (instead of being mounted flat onto the print head), can you recommend those?
