R1+ Firmware V2 ¶
To update with Matter Control, go to, Controls > Firmware Update > Change > direct to the Hex file.
Fixed a potential bug where manually driving the Z axis down could travel below the build plate and miss align the Z axis.
Also added a way to print from the SD card with no computer attached.
To do this you simply add a robo.gcode to the SD card and place it in the printer. All the motors must be disengaged and the bed must be away from home. When the printer is on and idle, tap the X axis endstop once with your finger. Then you have 2 seconds to push the Y Axis bed back to home position. Once you do this the printer will start printing the robo.gcode on the SD card. If you did not preheat the printer it may take some time to actually start printing.
ROBO R1 (Original) Firmware 3.0 ¶
- If you have the R1+ Plus, do not use this firmware. ****
- Adjusted Max Bed Temp, Extruder Min Temp
- Confirmed Z Steps
- Changed the Printer Name

Flashing the firmware ¶
*Note* Arduino 1.6.10 is showing errors with compiling the firmware. Use 1.6.9
- Arduino is free to download at www.arduino.cc
- Please download and install the latest arduino software.
- Attached is the .zip file for the marlin auto level firmware.
- Download the file. You will need to extract the folder of the .zip file and put it to where your arduino software is looking for sketchbooks.
- To find out the file path for where arduino is looking for sketchbooks, open the arduino software
- Go to file, preferences, and see at the top of the window sketchbook location.
- Extract the .zip file and put the extracted folder into that sketchbook folder.
Steps to uploading the firmware (or flashing the arduino with the same firmware).
- Make sure your computer is connected to the printer via USB cable. You can leave the power cord unplugged for this procedure.
- Do not connect repetier or any other software system to your printer.
- Open the arduino software.
- Under tools choose board and then arduino mega 2560
- Under tools choose serial port and choose the option associated with your printer (will probably be the only option, if not, unplug your printer and see which option goes away).
- Under file, choose sketchbook, and then choose marlin auto level.
- Now hit the upload button in the arduino software. This is the green arrow pointing to the right at the top of the arduino software window.
- When the firmware is finished uploading, the arduino software will say “Done uploading” at the bottom of the window.
