Anet A8-L Firmware in arduino format
July 08, 2017 10:41AM
I am trying to upgrade my Anet A8 to the firmware that I need so that I can use auto bed leveling with this sensor. I have already flashed Skynet, but I REALLY don't like it. The controls are really tricky and it is just not easy and the temperature is not well controlled. That is why I want to flash the anet a8-l firmware via arduino. When I download the anet a8-l firmware, it is in .hex format. I can't use a file that is in .hex on arduino 1.6. (have to use that arduino version to flash firmware) Is there any way that I can flash a .hex file onto my printer (I've already tried AVRDUDESS, stuck on uploading screen.) My ideal solution is an a8-l file in .ino format.

Skynet is your better bet on the anet a8 for auto leveling.

Temperature control is stable and consistent on my two anet a8's after switching to pid control. I am using autoleveling with skynet.

You have to do some of the work to configure skynet but compared to the a8-l firmware (where it is closed source) you have free reign over how it behaves espcecially when you need to configure bed dimensions, homing positions, probe offsets etc.

With the a8-l firmware you are stuck with how it is configured and it most likely isn't configured for the sensor you are wanting to use.

Try Marlin


You can always go back if you don't like it.
