Hi,When you use the Firmware Toolkit to update the firmware,
While uploading the firmware, press and hold the reset button of the printer,
Upload.
Can you describe that in a bit more detail william? At which point do you release the reset button, AFTER you've pressed "Upgrade from Local"?

Re: Patching A20T firmware for 3dTouch

When we try to use the firmware uploaded it won’t it forever times out. Some other searching revealed that the perhaps the board doesn’t have a boot loader installed and that’s why no one can patch the firmware. I’m traveling at the moment, But I’m going to try and install a boot loader and then try...

Hi, You can refer to the interpolation in the picture for connection
Yes. And in the pictures above and in the other post on the topic you have it set up both ways, hence why I was asking. It’s a moot point at the moment because I can’t flash the printer for 3dTouch. We need to solve that first.

Re: Patching A20T firmware for 3dTouch

I’m in exactly the same situation, so far I’ve tried patching it with a Mac, a PC and a Raspberry (all of which will print with the printer) — I’ve tried ArduinoBuilder, XPatcher, Cura, Easyprint, and the Geeetech patching too. I got mine from amazon, whom do I contact to get a replacement board? I’...

Re: Patching A20T firmware for 3dTouch

So something else is wrong here. Do I need to do anything to the printer (other than turn it on) to put into a mode that's ready for patching or something. Because AVRDude just times out. No matter what software i'm using. I've tried this on a Mac, PC, and Raspberry Pi with your drivers, and your pa...

Re: About how to connect the 3d touch

@William,

each cable can go on 2 different ways, (the 2 pin cable can be installed black on top or white on top for example). are you saying the orrientation of the cables doesn't matter?

Patching A20T firmware for 3dTouch

HI, The only firmware available for the A20T is a .hex file. and there are basically no instructions on how to load this. Searching the web most of the instructions are for dealing with source files in Arduino... I have tried for HOURs to get this to work, I've tried Xloader, and Freemantics builder...

Re: Flashing Hex file

@Erebus:

Maybe you could share what tools you used and how you did it so that the rest of us could benefit?

Re: Help: Single Color models coming out a mix

Thank you Erica! So to make sure I understand: * I should have 2 printers set up 1) for mixing and 2) for single or multicolor prints. * for the "Mixing" version of the printer, I use the gCode provided * For the "single" or "multi color" version I use the standard gcode that comes with Cura. * Also...
