is creating ADVi3++
I'm Sebastien Andrivet, the creator of ADVi3++, a custom firmware for Wanhao i3 Plus 3D printers and their clones.

What is ADVi3++?


ADVi3++
is an alternative and better open-source firmware for Wanhao i3 Plus 3D printers and their clones. It is based on the latest stable version of Marlin and add some features like the tuning of your printer (stepper motors tuning, bed leveling, thermal protection, etc.), thermal protection (in case something wrong happens to your printer), buzzer control (no more this annoying sound), screen dimming control, etc.

I also publish technical documents about i3 Plus printers, their internals and some other useful information.

Why Patreon?


Working on ADVi3++ takes a lot of time and effort. I make my best to release good quality software, useful and precise documents. I track bugs reported by users and record enhancement requests. I invest also time and money to build, for example, a printer simulator.

If you like what I am doing, please consider supporting me as a patron so I can continue and develop new releases and new documents. Supporting this project is a guaranty for you that it will continue and become better and better.

What I will do with your donations?


I will use your donations mainly to buy hardware and better support the different flavors of modifications you can perform on your printer. For example, I have bought three BLTouch sensors: a classic, a smart v2 and a smart v3, just to be sure my support is fine for all three. I bought two different LCD screens because there are currently two different models used by the i3 Plus. I bought also proximity sensors and runout filament sensors to support them in a future release.

But I can give only a small amount?


And it is perfectly OK. My goal is not to become rich. Your support will help me keeping motivating, and is a very concrete way to show me that you like my work.

What have been done since the beginning of Patreon's campaign?


Here is some of the new features or documents I have released thanks to sponsors:
  • BLTouch support including BLTouch Smart version 3
  • Head parking and filament change including when you send a M600 command
  • Support of Mark II (except power loss recovery, planned for a later version)
  • Support of Aldi Balco 3D Printer
  • Alignment with latest Marlin 1.1.9 sources including post 1.1.9 fixes. Thanks to that, I was able to bring: S-Curve Acceleration, Linear Advance, Babystepping, etc.
  • Multiple PID values for different temperature. PID tuning of the Bed
  • Etc.


What you can expect in the coming weeks and months?


Here is some of the new features I plan to release in the coming month:
  • Support of proximity sensors
  • Support of Filament Runout detectors
  • Support of i3 Plus Mark II Power Loss Recovery
  • Support of Wanhao Duplicator 9 (D9)
  • Port of ADVi3++ to Marlin 2.0 using the new EXTENSIBLE_UI API
  • Etc.

Pre-Build Binaries


As a supporter of ADVi3++ project, you get exclusive benefits. In particular, you get pre-build binaries (.hex files for the mainboard, .img files for the LCD Panel) before the general public (around 4 months before).

Of course, the sources remain public and up to date for everybody under GPLv3.
