We created a Node shell for Ender3 v1/v2 to make it easier to install and organize.
Please download Node Shell here.
This is optional but recommended print:
Please confirm the firmware version of your Node Pro before you start using it.
We recommend that you update to the latest version: 2022-10-19-2008
Please refer this doc to update your firmware
Remove the SD card from the Node.
Considering that the SD card is prone to poor contact with the card holder, the SD card configured by Node Pro is a little thicker than the standard card, which makes it a bit difficult to remove the SD card.
If the SD card does not automatically eject after you press the SD card, please perform the following actions:
Loosen the four screws shown in the picture
As shown in the picture below on the right, use your fingernail to remove the SD card.
The configuration file name is config.txt
Download a generic copy here.
Open the config.txt downloaded in a text editor and you will see this
ssid:wifiname pass_word:12345678 device_name: Node1 filament_detect:0 0
ssid specify WiFi Access Point name. Change the WiFi name to the name of access point you preferred.
pass_word: Your wifi password. Enter plaintext, this configuration file will be deleted after the wifi is configured, please don't worry about password leakage. We only support WPA2
device_name: The device name of your Node. In the same local area network, please try to use different device names for different Nodes.
fliament_detect: Whether to add material break detection sensor. If not, set this value to 0
The last line ends with a 0.
Please note: after each colon, do not have a space to separate text. The last line must add a 0.
After configuring the wifi file of the SD card, we need to insert the SD card into the Node.
Node is powered by standard USB 5V power source to its USB-C port. Please locate and use the 5V charging adapter included in the Node shipment.
Connect USB Cable to Node Type C port.
Best to use included USB 5V Charger. Some USB PD Charger may have over 5V current that could damage Node.
The default working baud rate of Node is 115200. If your printer is not using this baud rate, then Node will not be able to communicate with the printer.
Some known firmware default baud rates:
Node has a status light (highlighted on the right) that will tells you
Next, we need to connect the USB-A of NodePro to the USB port of the printer, and at the same time insert the SD card plug of Node Pro into the SD card slot of the printer.
Please note that the baud rate of the USB communication between the Node Pro and the printer is 115200. If your printer has changed the firmware and changed to another baud rate, then the USB of the Node Pro may not be able to communicate with the printer normally.
Open the browser and make sure that your computer or mobile phone is connected to the same local area network as Node. Enter in the ip on the Node display into the browser.
Using previous page example:
It would be http://192.168.2.12:88/version
Check the version number on the top left corner
(Suppose your version is: 2022-6-8-2005)
Note the use of http, not https when input your ip in the browser.
Please check Creality page here
When the Node is powered on and the network configuration is completed (the green light is always on), we can control the printer through the web page under the same local area network. First, find the IP address displayed on Node’s OLED panel , then enter IP in the browser: http://xxx.xxx.xx.xx:88
Using example from previous page. It would be http://192.168.2.12:88
If you are unable to connect. Make sure it is http protocol,not https.
The interface shown below will then be displayed. You can try clicking the home button in the web page to control actions such as printer reset.
Note that a Node currently only supports access to less than 5 webpages/terminals at the same time. Please try not to open multiple browser windows at the same time to control the same Node.
You can upload gcode files to Node Pro in many ways, including the following:
Here we only demonstrate the example of using web page upload
You can upload the Gcode file generated by any slice software to Node. Select the Gcode file on the web page and click “Upload”.
Note: There should be no spaces in the file name, otherwise the printing cannot be controlled normally!
After the upload is complete, in the file list in the lower left corner, click: “print”, and you can see that the printer starts printing.
At this point, you can see that the printer starts to print, and you can also see the log returned by the printer on the right side of the web page
