There are 2 options in this update:

  1. basic - works with the V1.0 Enclosure or without an enclosure (without door check function)

  2. Enclosure - works with the V1.1 Enclosure (with door check function)

  • It’s ok to re-upgrade your machine if you use the wrong version. If you choose the Enclosure version but you don’t have the V1.1 enclosure, the 3D printer and CNC carver can still work properly. However, the laser module will not start engraving after you choose a g-code file.

Change Log:

  • Improved user experience regarding the enclosure Door Detection feature. In V2.6, you had to select the correct .bin file according to the version of your enclosure. With the firmware V2.7 and Snapmakerjs V2.5.0, you don’t need to select between .bin files. Instead, you can choose to use the Door Detection feature or not in Snapmakerjs.

Thank you for your suggestions to make the Snapmaker better. Here comes the latest version of the firmware. Your feedback is always appreciated. Please post bug reports and feedback to this topic: Bug Reports and Feedback for Snapmaker-GD32Base-2.X =)

Change Log:

  1. Workspace > Laser: power accepts setting of 0.1%. For the 1600mW laser module, a smaller power granularity can be used for focusing. For example, You can use 0.5% of 1600mW for focusing. This prevents the laser from burning the material when focusing.

  2. Optimized user experience of the V1.1 enclosure. After opening the door detection switch, weak light focusing can be used even when the door is opened.

  3. Bugfixes: deletes the .bin file when the upgrade is successful.

  4. Added support to Z-Axis Extension Module. When you attach the Z-Axis Extension Module to your printer, upgrade the firmware to this version. Reconnect Snapmakerjs to the printer. Enter “M1025 M1” in the console and press “Enter”. When the software replies “ok”, your printer is upgraded successfully.
    When you want to use the original linear module, enter “M1025 M0” in the console and press “Enter”. When the software replies “ok”, your printer can only print items as tall as 125 mm.
    Also, you need to upgrade your software to the latest version and change the settings of the machine to generate G-codes for taller models.
