USING PRONTERFACE WITH THE BIGTREETECH SKR 1.4 TURBO
Ok, so I have the SKR 1.4 TURBO which I will be installing into the Creality CR-10 S5, and to make it work properly, I had to create my own firmware and burn it to the board. Once it is on the board I want to ensure it works properly before I spend the time, rewiring the board and placing it into the control box. How would I verify the board works properly?
This little app allows me to test the board after the firmware has been installed to make sure it works. Also if I am having problems with CR10S5, because the EXP1 and EXP2 ports are not working with my SKR 1.4 Turbo…this little app will let me understand why.
To use pronterface, download it from:
Extract the files to the desktop
On your SKR 1.4 turbo, make sure you set the jumper on the 5v pair instead of the 12-24v pair
Plug the board into the USB drive on your computer and let it boot up
Now open the \Printrun-win-18Nov2017 folder
Launch the app named pronterface.exe
and click Connect within the app
If all went well, this will connect to your board and give you the following message in the dialog box all the way to the right
Printer is now online.
So your board works!
You can send the M503 code to it and check out all the nitty gritty, or you can simply power your board down and install it in the printer
