Autodesk Open Sources Ember 3D Printer Electronics and Firmware

On Sep 21, 2015 released Ember’s electronics and firmware are now open-source and are available for you to download, inspect, modify, and make improvements. The electronics are shared under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license, the same license under which we’ve shared Ember’s resin and mechanical designs; the firmware is licensed under GNU GPL (see the source code itself for the full details).

Most of Ember’s electronic components are located on two PCBs. The main board integrates a clone of the BeagleBone Black and an AVR-based motor controller. The major changes from a stock BeagleBone are the addition of a USB hub (to support the included WiFi adapter), double the flash memory (8GB), and improved power management. A satellite board in the front panel controls its OLED display and ring of LEDs using a second AVR. The Sitara and the AVRs communicate via I2C.
