Simple Metal not able to re-flash anymore.

Postby AgentTDM » 2017-Oct-Fri-21-Oct

Still trying to re-flash the firmware on the Printrbot Simple Metal to get it to accept an E3D Titan (with very little success). Now, even though I've tried the same firmware (and a different version)..Every time I hit the "verify" button..Teensyduino says that it is "too large". I'm not sure why, since nothing really has changed in the lines except for one thing. It keeps giving that error message in that window even though I have the jumper attached to the pins and have hit the reset button as the instructions state to do. It's now preventing Flip from being able to do anything to the board now. Beginning to think that the board that I have in mine is just not compatible with the required firmware changes (the board is labeled as being a Rev F4).

You might try compiling with PlatformIO instead of Arduino. This thread is long and not well-organized, but if you read through it you'll get all the info you need. viewtopic.php?f=22&t=10160

Why are you using Teensy instead of AT90USB1286? While they share some similarities the Printrboard is not a Teensy++ 2.0.

The firmware is small enough from the compilation results, If you click on the Wiki icon (assuming a desktop display) in the forum web pages you can find RJ's excellent firmware burning guide.

I haven't looked at Teensy's site in a while, check out the 3.5 and display (no way will these work with a Printrboard, and a big project to make them work with a SM). Those microB to full size A cables look pretty good, too, lessen your chances of the surface mount connector on the Printrboard falling off.

Just did what the E3D site was telling me to do in these steps.
