Will the Creality 3D v 1.1.4 board run off of 12V?

  • I'm replacing my stock Ender 3 Pro board with an SKR mini E3 v2.0 mainboard, and wanted to use my old Melzi board to bring life to an old Printrbot Simple Metal.

    However, the Printrbot runs on 12V. Hotend and motors. Since the power to the hotend and motors are both passthroughs, and the voltage would be regulated down to 5V on the board to run the chips, would a 12V input work? I read somewhere that the Melzis are 12/24 V compatible. If that is the case, do you need to do something to tell the board that?
