New firmware means that we have optimize the control of the electronics which will gives better print results and user experience. If you see this mention, connect the USB cable between your computer and your Duplicator 6 and follow the instructions in Cura.”16 May 2016 at 21 h 22 min #88

daft queston but i only need to install the latest firmware 3 to my d6 it will have all the previous firmware fixes in it. is this correct cheers Tim9 June 2017 at 14 h 55 min #6613
Hi to All, after testing my Wanhao D6 for several months, firmware Marlin Version 1.1.0-RC8 02-27-17 Version 5.0 I finally realized that the original firmware 3.1 prints better on the first layer.
Surely the Marlin has problems with the leveling system of the plate.
Quite distressed I decided to take the original firmware and enter new menu items in “Maintenance > Advanced” and edit some of them:
Lower plate 25mm
Lower buildplate (the heated plate goes down to the bottom)
Preheat all (Preheat Extruder and Plate “210/70”, status Info)
Stop heating (Extruder heating and flat heating, status info)
The firmware can be installed either by Cura Wanhao or by Xloader included in the zip file.
I hope to have been useful to the community.
Special thanks to my friend G. Orrico.
