How can I turn off heating bed in original? I get that message before my first print and printer won't get me that. Thx

I'm guessing you have the wrong firmware on your machine (or the wrong printer profile in Cura). When you add a machine in Cura you can choose Ultimaker Original, then it asks for the upgrades, don't select heated bed. (and don't selecte Ultimaker Original +)

Thanks mate.

It doesn't work via ulti controller only either. Wrong firmware? How is that possible? Its new printer with possibility of upgrading it with heated bed so there should be an option to turn it on or off - I think.

Everything drives smoothly and controller says "ultimaker ready" then I place SD card in a slot, move axes to "auto home", press print of SD and controller starts to count the time of printing, menu slightly change but it doesn't heat up head extruder, obviously doesn't start but it only says "bed heating" on controller - I don't think of cura yet.

I bought 2 printers so I can try to change circuit board for another one but it shouldn't be like that :(

On the other hand - maybe you have the correct firmware and the message is simply a print message right out of the gcodes - there is a gcode that displays messages -- check the gcode file that you are printing - it might say something about a "bed" even if you don't have one.

Also in cura there should be no option for bed temperature.  If there is then you need to go to machine settings and fix that.

    • "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.
