New firmware version 1.4 for the Vertex 3D printer
Updated firmware 1.4 has been released for the Vertex 3D Printer. This firmware addresses a critical issue of uncontrolled nozzle heating while in the “load filament menu” as well as in the “show firmware” menu. Users are advised to perform this upgrade to avoid any issues. This new firmware also adds LED control via the LCD panel or via Gcode to drive the K8403 LED add-on.
The firmware files can be found on the download page of the Vertex 3D Printer:
You can update the firmware on your printer using the instructions on the manuals page.
When you have uploaded the newer version of the firmware you must not forget to reload the EEPROM settings. This will update the stored values on the printer as these are not updated via the Arduino upload process. Go to the SETTINGS menu, then scroll down until you see RESTORE FAILSAFE, access this menu and the firmware will load the new values into the EEPROM, next choose the STORE MEMORY menu (also in the SETTINGS menu) to store the new values. DO NOT FORGET THIS STEP!!
