Updating your Ender 3 V2 to Jyers

If you're reading this, then perhaps you may already know other firmware exists other than Crealitys Firmware, and in case you didn't know, firmware is the software running directly on your 3D printer. The firmware is what controls the step motors, regulates the temperature, and ultimately makes the printer work. 

The V2 comes with stock Creality Firmware, an altered version of Marlin. Marlin is the most popular firmware, and it's open source. Marlin supports both 8- and 32-bit 3D printer mainboards while still being able to run complex and an ever-increasing number of features.

 

If you're interested in learning more about Marlin, here is the link to their website. https://marlinfw.org

 

For purposes of this blog, we will stay focused on Jyers. What is Jyers? Jyers is another version of the firmware using the Marlin Source Code. It was created by a 19-year-old college student studying Electrical Engineering and Physics. Programming has always been a passion of his for Jyers. Since this is the case, he initially created this firmware because he thought it would be a fun project and allow him to add some customization to his printer, but it has turned into so much more.

If you intend to install Jyers, here are some support pages and links you might be interested in knowing about.

For our small business, I can say Jyers has changed how we 3D Print; in fact, Jyers firmware offers so much more, and it pushes the Marlin Code far beyond the limitations of the stock Creality Firmware.

You'll see what I mean after you've installed it, and if you're anything like me, you might scratch your head and wonder why Creality R&D wasn't able to offer their consumers this fantastic UI. 

Jyers is relatively easy to install on your V2, and I have included all of the links you need, plus a beneficial video, courtesy of one of our customers. 

Jyers will work with Prusa or Cura, and it will work with or without bl touch on your V2. There are several versions, so make sure you take your time to select the one you will need for your printer. If you need help, just ask us, and we will be happy to get you started.

It's also worth noting that there are several "how-to" videos out there, but the one we liked comes to use from "EB3D" Printing.

Other Firmware You Might Want to Checkout Include:

  • Marlin: This trendy option is the firmware that Creality's is based on. If you're technically inclined, there are options to configure it yourself.
  • Klipper: This unique firmware package works using both a mainboard and a single-board computer to enable faster printing speeds, pressure advance, and other features. Klipper is best used with Creality's 32-bit boards (like on the Ender 3 V2) due to their pre-installed bootloader and is a great firmware option for experienced users.
  • TH3D: This unified firmware package is derived from Marlin, though it's simpler to configure. It's designed for the TH3D board, but the firmware still works on all the stock Ender 3 boards. However, it doesn't allow you to go into as much detail for complex firmware modifications as Marlin 2.0.

If you're looking to update your printer's mainboard and firmware, TH3D is worth checking out. We aren't affiliated with them, but as a small business owner, we appreciate all they do and continue to give back to the 3D Space.

TH3D creates their mainboards and upgrades, and they program the code for their products, including the firmware. They handle their troubleshooting in-house, and I can't say enough great things about Tim and his Crew! 

If you haven't checked them out, I recommend you do, and at the very least, Tim hosts a live YouTube feed every Wednesday. I enjoy their live feed and their brutally honest opinions about the Manufacturers and products released in the market today.

If you show up, say hello, my name is Jessica, and I can always be found there on a Wednesday evening.
