[ ]Ender 3 Pro and Duet Maestro Wiring Guide
Introduction
The Creality Ender 3 is a surprisingly high quality low cost printer option, and has become very popular. The small build volume, smaller motors, and single extruder design is a perfect fit for the recently released Duet Maestro electronics board, which brings the power and flexibility of RepRapFirmware into a smaller, lower cost package. [ … ] This series of guides will go through the process of upgrading a stock Ender 3 Pro with a Duet Maestro, from wiring, to firmware configuration, and basic tuning steps. Later guides will go into more advanced feature upgrades like installing alternate fans, LED lighting, and Z probes like the BLTouch. [ … ] Even though these guides will show an Ender 3, the procedures shown can be applied to any other printer.
