    I havn’t done this myself. But on user manual says “Updating firmware with USB cable Once a while Cura will give you a mention that new firmware available. 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.”

    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)
    Disable stepper

    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.

    Hello to everyone, after a number of changes we came to the final revision of the original Wanhao D6 3.1 firmware revision (http://www.wanhao3dprinter.com/Down/ShowArticle.asp?ArticleID=75)
    To make the original Firmware better I had to modify it.
    Here is the list of changes to my final version 3.2.1, created with your help:

    Wanhao D6 Firmware v.3.2.1

    Redesigned the LCD Information Display Print Panel.
    Correct position of characters in all information screens.
    Modify some information items.
    Modified Abort job, in the TUNE menu (the plate drops by 5mm before returning home)
    Extruder temperature limit of 320°
    Fixed some code bugs

    Added menu items in “Advanced”:
    – Raise plate 25mm
    – Lower plate 25mm
    – Lower buildplate (the plate down to the bottom)
    – Preheat all (Preheat Extruder and Plate “210/70”)
    – Stop heating (Stop all heating)
    – Disable stepper

    The firmware can be installed either by Cura Wanhao or by Xloader included in the zip file.
    There are two files in Zip File:
    “WanhaoD6-Firmware.v3.2.1” (Standard Firmware)
    “WanhaoD6-Firmware.v3.2.1-MaxTemp.320” (Maximum Extruder Temperature 320°)

    I remind everyone that after installing the firmware you have to reset and bring home all the axes and rearrange the plate.

    I hope to have been useful to the community.
