Printrbot Simple LED Lights

Postby bcrazycramer » 2017-Oct-Thu-01-Oct


This[url]] article says I need to update the firmware to use these LED lights. Is there an easier way to use them? The firmware updater for my MAC just sits there and says its downloading the firmware when I choose Printrbot Simple from the drop down.

Macs use a different way to flash the firmware than Windows computers. See the Wiki (the red-beige-white button next to the "Search..." box at the upper right of the main Printrbottalk screen)
