It is good that the firmware is open source and that we can see and modify the source(values) etc.
but there is no detailed documentation on how to compile the firmware and how to get the two "*.bin" files to use it with the Upgrade_Tool.

A detailed step-by-step instruction is needed with all the Steps from Installing the Workspace tools (Eclipse and/or IAR) to the Uploading of the firmware (separate PDF or Video Tutorial would be great)

There are a bunch of tutorials for Marlin and Arduino. but these two tools( Eclipse and IAR) are new tools and there isn't any documentation on the internet.
FAQ:
Are the Compiling programs Free? I found the only option on the website for IAR Embeded Workbench to buy it.
Are there macOS version for the Workbenches(Eclipse or IAR) available?
There is already mentioned by Issue #21, what is the difference between the two Projects IAR and Eclipse, and why are there two? which is the actual Stable Version ?

I don't wonder why the development is so slow and so little contribution.
There is so much confusion and lack of documentations on the Firmware.

Sorry for making you confused. we will add detailed documentation about compilation later today.

Q1: How to get two bin files to use it with upgrade tool?
A1: You can find all firmwares which have been compiled in geeetech.com/firmware. You can upgrade the machine with Easyprint 1.2.3 or Firmware tool V1.0.(earlier version had some bugs in upgrading but now fixed)

Q2: IAR Free?
A2: No

Q3: Are there macOS version for the Workbenches(Eclipse or IAR) available?
A3: Yes for Eclipse and no for IAR, but you can install your own virtual machine.

Q4: which is the actual Stable Version?
A4: IAR. you can find the answer in README

Thanks for your attention.
