Hi All,

Quick question, is Marlin a drop in replacement FW for the UM2? what I mean by this is will I just be able to print as normal but with a better features or will I have hassle with bugs / new complicated settings etc.

Thanks

Peter

P.S. Sorry for the second post, not used to the forum yet (still can't see my posts via normal forum, but did find it another way hence this edit!!)

    The UM2 uses a variant of Marlin. You should not install any other firmware than what's included in Cura (unless it very clearly states that it is for the UM2).

    As for your other question. The first post of every new member has to be approved by a moderator. This is put in place to deal with spam mostly. I went ahead and deleted your earlier thread.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
