Scott's Printable Printer Upgrades List

    OK Scott Here again. I keep getting asked what parts I use on my printers so I figured I would build a list. starting with general parts. Now this list is just for the printers I have. I’ll also add notes about each as I build the list. Now this is by no means all the parts I have on my printers as some of them I don’t have links to some are prototypes of my own design and some I just didn’t think of it’s also not the only options for these designs as I’m sure most of them have copies or versions out that might work better for each person. I will try to update this as I find or design other parts. Or if you know of something worth adding to the list let me know.

Chitu G code Explained

        Once again Scott Here to see if I can’t help you understand the something else I have seen questions about in the 3D printing community.  This Time around I’ll go over the G-code used By Chitu on their F mini control board (this control board comes on the Tronxy X5SA).
 
PLEASE NOTE CHANGING THESE SETTING WILL change your printers behavior. Therefore I do not recommend changing settings yourself without understanding what each setting your adjusting does.

Tronxy X5S to X5SA Upgrade kit installation

          OK Scott Here again like normal. This time I had a little help from Norman Gilman with some pictures and a few of the steps, helping to get my mind in gear to write this. Now please note Neither Norman Or I installed these setup with the auto bed leveling because we use glass beds to thick for the factory blue sensor to see the bed through the glass.

How to Install a Post Processing Scripts in Cura 3.2.1

A PostProcessingPlugin Script is an easy way to modify gcode before it gets written onto disk.
A Python script is executed and handed over the full gcode.
The script is expected to return a gcode as a list of lines.
Here is how you do it.

Flashing Tronxy X5S Factory Control board USB Cable only

Ok so Scott here again, this time I decided to go ahead and take things to a simple level based off a write up done by Syed Muhammad Shaheryar. I have seen so many comments and issues with people flashing firmware to their factory TronXY X5S control board, now this should work for flashing the firmware on the X3S as well but the firmware I included will need some edit work unlike for the X5S. This Version of Arduino IDE will work just like any other but it can be installed on a thumb drive or SD card  and moved from one computer to the next without having to install anything on that computer. it should also work on other boards but I have not tested it.

Power Supply Fan Replacement

           Ok So Scott here again recently I started to hear a noise coming from my power supply unit (PSU), so I decided to replace the fan with a quiet one. I choose to use a mini kaze (60mm) fan to keep it quiet as well as work well to keep the PSU cool. Normally I start by showing you tools needed but in this case all I needed was a screw driver so I’ll skip that step and add in a the normal caution to make sure the PSU is turned off and unplugged.

Mk7 / Mk8 HOTEND ASSEMBELY REBUILD

      Ok so Scott here again lately I have been seeing a lot of post and comments about the factory Tronxy hotend so I figured I would go ahead and write up a quick tech article. While this is not the only way to rebuild or assemble the hotend assembly this is the way I do it. This also works on the E3D hotends I have but the throat is different on them. So let’s start with a few tools.

Flashing firmware on to stock TronXY X5S control board

          This tutorial will help you flash some real firmware on to your stock TronXY X5S control board, using a separate Arduino Uno board as the programmer. It’s not meant for any other board, period. Just the stock one specifically. No others. If you try it on a different board and it doesn’t work, don’t say I didn’t warn you.

It is also written under the assumption that you're running Windows. If you're on a different operating system you'll need to take the appropriate equivalent steps. If you don't know how to do that you'll need to find a different set of instructions. :)
