|X1K(6" 2K mono)|
ChiTu just released new firmwares with bug fixes and support for ChiTuBox Pro features. If you use ChiTuBox Slicer Pro version, you must update your printer's firmware. These firmwares are also able to take files from ChiTuBox's free version. That means these firmwares have backward compatibility.
The E10 and X10 mono firmwares also have enhancements to better regulate current load on components. Details are in the zip files. So we strongly recommend E10 or X10 mono customers to update the firmware.
Legacy Firmware Files
For customers using Chitubox v1.8, refer to the Legacy Firmware Files below
Adds .ctb file support to X156/X133 machines.
The folder names are 13.3 and 15.6 corresponding to X133 and X156. Inside each sub folder there are two firmware files. You just need to copy these two files to a USB stick. Print Update.LCD first, then the printer will reboot itself, then print the other file, then remove USB stick and power off, then wait for a few seconds and power on.
Old X1Ks that are going to be using new E6 screens will need this firmware update. E6s with trouble toggling the network switch in the Network menu on the touchscreen should try flashing this firmware.
