Hi,

just assembled new Ultimaker Original with no heating bed and when I try to run my first print it says "heating bed" but I've got no heating bed and I believe that is why I can't print so is there any way to turn it off?

Thanks

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 :(

Maybe the file you are trying to print has a command to heat the bed?

Try slicing a new object in Cura, with the Ultimaker Original profile

The only way to disable the heated bed is with firmware change. The ulticontroller shouldn't even know it exists when you have the correct firmware installed.

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.

Try the latest build of Cura.

I had that problem with my UMO trying to print using one of the recent builds.
