For the past 5 years I have had a z-offset command in my printer definition start gcode section. Just wondering why one would write a plugin to replace a single line of code - or does it have some extra goodies :)
I have a Prusa, clone, while not the real thing, I have found that it's way less accurate than my Ultimaker. Out of the box, yes I had to adjust the ultimaker slightly and I achieved a +/- 10 Microns outcome. IMHO any FDM printer is going to struggle below this, due to the nature of the print technology variables in temp, movement, filament etc. Each printer is going to differ as it translates any mechanical inaccuracies of the build. I have an Ultimaker 3, for dual extrusion, I looked at the 5S but couldn't justify the expense for just what appears to be size, extrusion sensors and potentially stronger filaments that I'm unlikely to use. I have mine dialled in pretty well and I'm happy with my results. I have multi-part prints that fit so I have my internal and external dimensions sorted now. just took a little experimentation and tweaks in Cura. I'm sure I could probably get it better but it's good enough for what I need and I'm not on a mission to get +/- 1 micron, I don't have anything that measures that tolerance anyway. Hope you get to where you need.
Hope you can help.
I have an Ultimaker 3 where I had to switch my main board. Bought a new Ultimainboard 1548-I and installed it with correct wiring. When I turned the machine on it came with ultimaker.com/ER01 error message which of what I can read is a head temp error of the Ultimaker 2/2+ ? This confused me a bit. - So next step I want to update the firmware on the ultimainboard. Problem is I cannot update it via internet or usb stick when the error message comes up. So I wanted to try updating it via USB cable, So I have detached the board from the back panel to access the USB cable connection point. In Cura there is no option to update the firmware on an Ultimaker 3 from the software (especially not because cura thinks its an ultimaker 2+).
I have downloaded the latest firmware today: "latest.tar.xs.sig" and "latest.tar.xs" - how can I update my board via USB cable connection? - Couldnt find anything online about it.
I really hope you can help me out - I wish all a great day.
