Up-to-date Marlin firmware for the Aurora A5

by mgilardi

Hi all,

Stay tuned for more A5 firmware updates, we are actively working to get this open source. Currently working on getting the filament sensor to unload and load as expected.

I love feedback and collaboration, so please feel free to help it along!


EDIT: We've released a solid firmware. See link above.

***NOTE: Please make sure to have a backup of your firmware (or JG's original HEX file) before proceeding with this. I take no responsibility for errors or issues, though I am here to help if I can. :)

OctoPi in the A5 - Step by Step

by DaHai8

If anyone is curious about installing a Raspberry Pi running OctoPi and Pi Cam inside their A5, I've posted a video on YouTube on how to do that. It's pretty detailed, and longer than I wanted it to be, yet I still managed somehow to leave some points out. So read the comments section as well for additional tips from me and my viewers.
