On my BTT board you copied a firmware.bin file onto a flash drive built into the board, can you not do that with that one?

No idea, but isn't that for updating Marlin ? I guess I could have corrupted that somehow.

Yayyyyyy

Got COM3 back. I shoved one of the firmwares from the repo onto the SD card, a light on the board when flashy flashy and then windows found it!

VScode kept moaning platform I/O was missing. Also moaning no python was found. Also moaning GIT was not found. So just installed all that crap. And now the build button in Marlin actually works!!

However the file size still comes out that 159K so no idea what is going on there :roll:

This seems "extra" in the 480K file.. Wonder if this one is including LCD driver information or something causing the larger file sizes..

Code: Select all

SENDING:M115
FIRMWARE_NAME:Marlin bugfix-2.0.x (Nov  4 2021 22:39:38) SOURCE_CODE_URL:github.com/MarlinFirmware/Marlin PROTOCOL_VERSION:1.0 MACHINE_TYPE:3D Printer EXTRUDER_COUNT:4 UUID:cede2a2f-41a2-4748-9b12-c55c62f367ff
but no movement commands are working or anything now :roll:

:shrug:


@PhilC Can you compile the stock firmware and see what file size you get ??

Does not sound right either, it is supposed to be 480K.

A guy on their pages mentions the steppers are not set up by default...

https://github.com/bigtreetech/BIGTREET ... /issues/85

So essentially they have uploaded a broken set of files :roll: This always seems to be the case with these repos. Why bother having a dedicated set of Marlin files for a particular board and then not half the stuff up :roll:
