Operation Manual of the Motherboard 


BTT SKR MINI E3 V2.0 is a customized motherboard for Ender3 printer launched by the 3D printing team of Shenzhen BIGTREE technology co., LTD., which can perfectly replace the motherboard of the original Ender3 printer.

Motherboard features: (mainly introduces upgrades based on V1.2)

  1. Use MP1584EN power chip, support 12-24V power input, the maximum output current can reach 2.5A;
  2. The hotbed MOS tube uses WSK220N04, low on-resistance, larger heat dissipation area, and reduce heat generation;
  3.  Onboard Sensorless homing function, which can be used by plugging in the jump cap;
  4. Optimize the PCB board and frame to avoid the phenomenon of screw hole gap and screws hitting components;
  5. Support touch, filament detection, BTT UPS 24V V1.0, BTT Relay V1.2, etc .;
  6.  Onboard EEPROM: AT24C32;
  7. Add parallel double Z-axis interface;
  8. Increase the board layer: 4 layer board;
  9. Increase the heat dissipation area of the back driver and strengthen the heat dissipation capacity;
  10.  Two CNC fan interfaces;
  11. Increase the distance between the driving chip and the components to avoid the trouble caused by the heat sink;
  12. Add protection device to the thermistor interface;
  13. 5V power supply with BLtouch, TFT and RGB interfaces is optional;
  14. The driver shares a physical UART port, which saves IO and enhances stability.

Description of motherboard indicators

After power on the mainboard:
3.3v red light is power indicator: the red light is on, indicating normal power supply;
Status red light is the Status indicator: when updating the firmware, it will flicker.
D8 green light is the HB status indicator for the hotbed: it is always on when heated, and it goes out when not heated.
D6 green light is the indicator light of E0 status of the heating tube: it is always on when heating, and it will go out when not heating.
D10 green light for CNC fan FAN0 status indicator: it lights up when turned on, and goes out when turned off.
D7 green light for CNC fan FAN1 status indicator: it lights up when turned on, and goes out when turned off.

Communication between motherboard and PC

The motherboard communicates with the PC (Windows system) through the [USB] interface. Before communication, the driver needs to be installed to be used normally. Driver acquisition method: Website: https://github.com/bigtreetech Download the file named:

The firmware description of the motherboard

The factory motherboard is installed equipped with firmware for testing (model Ender3), which can be used directly or changed according to your own needs.

  1. The Firmware Acquisition Method of Motherboard:
    Obtain by Ask customer service or technical personnel;
    Download at our Company Open source website: https://github.com/bigtreetech
  2. Motherboard Firmware update method
    Choose the file suitable for your model in the downloaded firmware package to copy to SD Card Root directory.
    Note: Filename cannot be changed, firmware.bin must be lowercase!
    Insert SD card into the mainboard SD card slot, re-energize or press the reset key, wait for about 10S. After that, the update can be completed.
  3. For DIY motherboard firmware, please refer to BTT SKR MINI E3 V2.0-PIN.pdf data.


  1. Firmware file names in SD Card cannot be changed.
    (including both upper and lower case letters).
  2. The wiring process and the plug-in drive process must be carried out under the premise of power off. The power-on can be started after checking the correct connection of the line and the correct insertion of the drive, so as to prevent the wrong connection of the mainboard and drive from being burnt down and causing unnecessary losses.
  3. The E3 motherboard can support the LCD12864 screen with the interface CR10_STOCKDISPLAY.
