I had issues with Atom.IO on my desktop PC and it got to a point where it will no longer show on my screen when starting the program to build my BIN file just so I can could get my printer running. So I thought I'd try using Visual Studio Code as one of your YouTube viewers commented.
Instructions for using Visual Studio Code for building the BIN file.
- Download Visual Studio Code - https://code.visualstudio.com/download
- Install the file you chose for your computer type
- Run Visual Studio Code
- Click on Debug→Install Additional Debuggers…
- In the search bar, clear everything using backspace then type in “platformio”
- You should see the PlatformIO IDE at the top of the list, click the green install box/button
- Exit Visual Studio Code
- Download the latest TH3d Firmware Pack and unzip to desired location
- Start Visual Studio Code
- Click Open Folder and locate the unzipped folder
..\TH3D_UFW_U2.R1.4a\Firmware Source Code
- Click Select Folder
- Modify the Configuration.h file in the Marlin folder with your changes
- Save your configuration
- Click on Terminal from the top menu
- Click on Run Build Task
- Select “PlatformIO: Build (LPC1769)”
- Once completed your BIN file will be in the following folder:
..\TH3D_UFW_U2.R1.4a\Firmware Source Code.pioenvs\LPC1769\
Worse case, you can request the BIN file 😃 from the forum.
