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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
