I upgraded to 1.9 today and attempted to print some miniatures. After slicing and placing the file on the USB drive my Elegoo Mars 2P didnt recognise the file and read it as an invalid folder even though the file was a .CTB. I uninstalled 1.9 and reinstalled 1.8 Beta did exactly the same and the printer is working perfectly fine. FYI if anyone else is having the same issue.
So, it does state that you require a new firmware, for the Mars2Pro V4.4.3. My problem is, I downloaded the firmware and it is still showing the 4.3.13 in the info display.... Haven't even attempted to use CBox 1.9 yet. (I just received the printer and only did the rook test print using V1.6 so far).
FWIW; I have a 1+ year old plain 'ol Mars unit on which I have been running the 4.3.1 Mars Pro firmware for the last 4 months (with no problems)--I upgraded to the v4.4.3 "Pro" firmware and have not had any issues printing Chitubox v1.9.0 generated .ctb files...
Same here LD-002H 1.9 not recognising any files
may i suggest to the support team they fix this ...
same issue same printer, however, it was working for the past week or so and printing non stop. then suddenly today the .ctl files are not being reconized by the printer, removed printer, reinstalled, format usb, different usb, reflash printer firmware. Fix was to drop back to chitubox 1.8.
Same here guys! I downloaded the latest version firmware for my Elegoo Mars 2 (V4.4.3_c2_LCDC_1620_2560_F9.23), installed it correctly and my printer is working. But, BUT, when I process files with Chitubox 1.9 the files.ctb it generates doesn't work at all and they aren't read. D:
FIXED: Okay after a little check i found the issue! The update wasn't correct for my printer, i just downloaded the correct and latest version for my printer (i dowloaded the Mars firmware before, not Mars2), put it into the root directroy of my flash drive, so using no folder (it means "G:/", no "G:/Folder") and it worked. Now the files are read and printed! Awesome.
Hey everyone! Yes updating the firmware of your printer is the best way to fix this issue. Here are the links I used which may be helpful. I used this as a guide to install the firmware: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ayv2aID2nU8&t NOTE: ALL THE FILES (SH4, CBD, TXT, etc.) NEED TO BE IN THE ROOT OF THE USB DRIVE! THEY CAN NOT BE IN A FOLDER! And this is where to download the firmware: https://www.chitubox.com/en/download/chitubox-free (scroll down and find your printer name - then check the left menu and find your printer name again as the first link only takes you to the correct website not the correct printer) Hope this helps!
I have tried multiple times to update the firmware on my Mars 2 Pro from V4.3.13-F2.23 to V4.4.3-c2_LCDC/1620X2560 /F9.23. It always stays on V4.3.13-F2.23 after printing all the files. I gave up and just went back to 1.81 of the slicer.
Ok I have dowloaded all of the firmware updates shown on https://www.elegoo.com/pages/3d-printing-user-support for the Saturn but which one do I use and what implications do each have as at the moment I have a working printer?
can comfirm this on a Phrozen Sonic Mini 4K. dont know if there is a new firmware yet. but this is pretty bad, a minor version change needs a firmware update on printers. Big nono where I do my programming work.
It's not worth using Chitubox anymore. I migrated to Lychee Slicer. Chitubox is trying to force users to use their software by locking them in with version 1.9. I will not update my firmware and I will use other slicers.
I have tried both updating the firmware and switching chitubox to 1.8 and my maars 2 pro still doesnt recognize the files. I just got the machine and have only been able to print the rooks. Extremely frustrating.
