  1. Hi Michael, sorry for the late answer ... I was on holidays Yes, normally you should just connect the three wires following the photos and all should work ... have you already tried? What is the result? All work fine? Guglielmo
  2. Go on TinkerGnome GitHub, download the firmware for your UM2 (for the standard UM2 is Tinker-MarlinUltimaker2-16.03.1.hex) then, connect the UM2 to your PC USB, start Cura and use the function to upload "custom" firmware. Select the .hex that you have downloaded and ... that's all Guglielmo
  3. Hi, if you look in my old message you see two important pictures ... the firts one show the connector and the wire on the UM2 side (from the top: black, white, red), on the third you have the wire and the connector on the "filament monitor" (from the top: white, black, empty, red). So ... just open the pictures, look the wire position and compare with your wires Guglielmo
  4. Hi Johan, as gr5 said, the original firmware totally ignores what happens on pin PC7 of the ATmega2560 so ... the sensor work only if you install the tinkergnome firmware which monitor the pin (PC7) and pause the printer if it goes LOW. Guglielmo
  5. Hi, yes, it is constantly installed on my UM2 and I have not encountered any problem. Guglielmo
  6. @Nicolinux: ... can I give you a suggestion ? One very nice possibility of the new IDE (if I remember well is starting from the 1.6.5) is to have "sandboxed" independent IDE ... you can have many versions of the same/different IDE and each one is totally closed i herself. To do that, on OS X (... where I'm) first give a unique name to your Arduino copy (eg. the last version, for me, is "Arduino 1.6.9 Portable.app"), next right click and select "Show Package Contents", next go to "Contents/Java/" and inside create a new folder named "portable" (so you have Contents/Java/portable/"). Close an
  7. Thanks derbroti, I didn't know the use of "package.sh" ... reading in it is pretty straightforward to derive the parameters to be modified into the source code to compile directly from the Arduino IDE without running any scripts. Guglielmo
  8. @tinkergnome: mmm, I think (... but i could be wrong) that Nicolinux needs info (... and me too I would like to know) in which file you define for which kind of Ultimaker2 (std., Go, 2+) you compile the firmware and what are the parameters to modify. @Nicolinux: me too I'm on OS X 10.11.4 and, for my Ultimaker2 std., I just used the last version of Arduino IDE (1.6.9) to compile the Marlin code that you download from the tinkergnome github (... just tried now, selecting as board "Arduino/Genuino Mega or Mega 2560", compiled Marlin.ino with just one warning ) Hope this help (... still if I h
  9. I have sent you a message Guglielmo
  10. ... just downloaded, from GitHub, Tinker_16.01 source code and delighted to discover that can be compiled, without additional libraries and hassle, with Arduino.cc IDE 1.6.7 So ... modified UltiLCD2_menu_material.h to change the two values, compiled, installed on the UM2 with BondTech QR Extruder and ... everything works fine Guglielmo
  11. Hi Tinkergnome, no problem, I can wait ... I am known for my patience Anyway, thanks in advance! Guglielmo P.S.: for the moment ... I continue to replace the filament manually ...
  12. Hi Tinkergnome, back here to ask you a courtesy ... ... is it possible to add two parameters (maybe) in Advanced -> Preferences -> Motion Settings -> unload/load speed ... ... the two parameters should allow to set by the Menu the two values currently fixed by these two constants in the firmware (file ULTI_LCD2_MENU_MATERIAL_H): #define FILAMENT_REVERSAL_SPEED...#define FILAMENT_INSERT_FAST_SPEED The reason for this request is to make it easier to use third party extruders that, often, requires different values (e.g. BondTech QR Extruder) without the need to compile the fir
  13. Hi Monty, mmm, no, I have not noticed these "noises" ... perhaps the screw that adjusts the distance of the ball bearing was too tight and requires a greater effort from the feeder ? Guglielmo
  14. Hi gr5, for the AVR memory map (AVR is the Atmel series of MCU used on Arduino UNO, Mega, Leonardo, etc ... NOT in Arduino DUE, Zero, and other using ARM) you can read HERE. They use for the tutorial the ATMega8515, on the Arduino MEGA 2560 you have the ATmega2560 MCU which have : Flash (program memory) : 256 KB (of which 8 KB used by bootloader) SRAM : 8 KB EEPROM : 4 KB Hope this help Guglielmo
  15. With the Tinker firmware, when the sensor put LOW the PC7, triggers the pause menu (... exactly like if you choose "pause" from the control panel). Solved the problem, you have to push the "reset" button on the filament monitor and to manually resume the printer. You can read from HERE Guglielmo
