I keep reading about swapping out the default Creality firmware in the Max for that made by another developer.
Although I have no serious complaints about Creality’s FW (hey, I’m a relative newbie to 3D printing so what do I know), I’m interested in what the consequences are of making such a low-level change to the Max: can I reload the default FW if I don’t like the new stuff? What do I lose in features or function by swapping? What do I gain? Can Octoprint and other programs still access the printer with non-Creality FW?
I’d prefer not to brick or reduce the functionality of my printer just because I don’t know what I’m doing. Anyone who has done a Max FW swap / “upgrade” able to help me out? Input gratefully accepted.
