Bi-metal heat break

Format the SD card, copy the mainboard firmware to the U disk, and the U disk only stores this file. Turn off the machine first, insert SD card and then turn it on. At this time, the light of the print head will flash. After a while, the printer will update the firmware automatically.

After the automatic update, the screen will automatically enter the main interface. Then shut down and pull out the U disk. Update complete. Power on, click "system" ¡ú "about" ¡ú "firmware version" to confirm the firmware version. Screen firmware update steps:.

Copy the DWIN_SET folder to the root directory of the SD card, and try not to have other files or folders under the SD card. Insert the SD into the card slot on the screen and then power on again.

The screen first enters the blue screen state. After about 20-30, it starts to play the animation, and when it becomes the blue screen again.

Better PTFE tube

It means flashing firmware is successful. Troubleshooting method:. If it stays on the blue screen for a long time, there is no animation. It is possible that there is a problem with the formatting of the SD card. Please reformat, note: formatted as fat32, the allocation unit size must be 4096 bytes.

Since I haven't seen a post about this yet:. The firmware version 2.4.5 has been posted here: https://github.com/ANYCUBIC-3D/Vyper/releases/tag/vyper-v2.4.5. The corresponding LCD firmware has been posted here: https://github.com/ANYCUBIC-3D/Vyper-lcd/releases/tag/v2.4.5.

There are however people reporting issues with bed leveling in 2.4.5: https://github.com/ANYCUBIC-3D/Vyper/issues/7.

Silent fans

Does anyone have the firmware installed successfully? Does bed leveling work for you?

How are your experiences?

The hotend fan can also be replaced with a more silent variant, but I recommend doing this only if you also upgrade the heat break to a bi-metal variant. If the fan you install has less airflow, you risk encountering clogs during your printing process.

The part cooling fans can also be upgraded to 5015 radial fans for higher airflow and less noise. They can be installed on the Anycubic Vyper using this Anycubic Vyper 5015 cooler model from Thingiverse.

Polycarbonate v-slot wheels

I recommend upgrading to polycarbonate wheels on most printers where you want to print faster, and eliminate the wear and tear POM v-slot wheels get over time. The PC v-slot wheels are an excellent upgrade for the Anycubic Vyper if you plan to install Klipper and push the printer further.

Of course, the stock POM wheels can work just as good if they are properly tensioned against the aluminum extrusion, but I still like to upgrade to PC on the X and Y axis.

PC v-slot wheels can be bought from the following websites:
Banggood
Amazon
Aliexpress

Bed Insulation

If you want to make your 3D printer more efficient, getting some bed insulation material is an excellent upgrade for the Anycubic Vyper. This bed insulation will allow the bed to heat a bit faster, and retain the heat much better.

It will improve the printer’s energy efficiency, and will make the printer a bit more silent because the power supply won’t be used as much, so the cooling fan will start less often.

Anycubic Vyper Free Upgrades

Klipper Firmware for Anycubic Vyper

The Anycubic Vyper is printing quite well with the stock firmware, and the functionality is ok. But installing Klipper on the Vyper will bring you a lot more functionality, allowing you to print faster without losing quality

I covered the Anycubic Vyper Klipper Installation, so if you are feeling adventurous, feel free to give it a try. It’s one of the best Anycubic Vyper free upgrades you can do to your machine, if you already have a Raspberry Pi laying around.

Tool Box Organizer

I love the handy little drawer included on the Vyper, and by printing this tool box organizer, you can keep everything nice and tidy. There are other variants out there, so check them out before deciding which one you want to print.

V-Slot Covers

Another excellent and free Anycubic Vyper upgrade is printing and installing v-slot covers. Over time, dust and small pieces of filament can get stuck inside the v-slots, but these covers save you from needing to clean them in the future. And they are also easy to print.

SD Card Holder

If you don’t print v-slot covers, and want a place to store your SD cards, then check out this cool little printed upgrade for the Anycubic Vyper. The holder snaps onto the aluminum extrusion and can hold four SD cards.

Raspberry Pi 4B box with camera attachment

If you plan to install Klipper on the Anycubic Vyper, then you need a place to keep your Raspberry Pi. So why not use this awesome Pi box? It is attached to the side of the extrusion, and it comes with a camera attachment if you plan to add a camera in the future. Pretty neat.
