  • D10 green light for the CNC fan FAN0 status indicator: on when open, off when closed.
  • D7 green light for the CNC fan FAN1 status indicator: on when open, off when closed.
  • D3 green light for the CNC fan FAN2 status indicator: on when open, off when closed.
  • D9 green light for the SD card status indicator: light up when inserted into the SD, off when pulled out.

Hardware Installation

Sensorless homing function

As shown, connect the corresponding axes with the jump caps to choose Sensorless homing function.

NOTE: If you choose this function, you cannot use external ENDSTOP!

5V power supply for BLtouch, TFT, RGB interfaces

1、 To use the onboard 5V PSU, short the pins shown in the above image using a jumper

2、To use an external BIGTREETECH DCDC5V V1.0 module, short the pins shown in the above image using a jumper.

Connection of cooling fan

Connect the fan by FAN2 to realize the whole machine cooling.

Pleast note that the operating voltage is the same with the input power supply voltage to avoid damage.

Connection to BIGTREETECH Relay V1.2

Connection to BTT UPS 24V V1.0

Connection to Neopixel light

Connection to BL touch

Software Configuration

Communication of Motherboard and PC

The motherboard can communicate with a PC using the USB interface.

The same USB interface can be used to communicate with a Raspberry pi or any other host device.

Firmware of motherboard

The package contains the firmware for testing (Ender3), which can be used directly or changed according to your needs.
