Chinese Thermocouple for Ultimaker ?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Chinese Thermocouple for Ultimaker ?

I had issues with 2 official thermocouples, the first could not even be inserted into the aluminum block because the diameter was too large, the replacement they sent was able to be inserted, but once heated it expanded and is stuck in the block. For some people this may not be an issue, but for me it made dissembling the hot end more difficult (I occasionally get clogs requiring acetone soaking).

Personally, I would order Chinese in the future because of the size issues with the newer official thermocouples did not justify the cost (my older official thermocouples have no issue being removed and reinserted into the aluminum block).

    You could use the E3D pt100 heater blocks. They cost almost the same as the originals and the heater/sensor grips with m3. They are much much easier to add/remove. They are a bit smaller but on my second printer it's working just fine.

    And to see where it goes on your board check the ultimaker original github for documentation

    So,

    i went on github and get the ultimaker marlin file. But I don´t know how to get the right pins, board an thermistor, I think it wil be number 5. I use Arduino 1.6

    [media-thumb=20636]

    I choose 7 for the 1.5.7 board

    1.thumb.JPG.ce07e5590303402f19ac6a359d9feb4c.JPG

    then I set the thermistor on 5 and for heatbed on 20

    1.thumb.JPG.ce07e5590303402f19ac6a359d9feb4c.JPG

    but where can I find the board in pins.h andf which pins I have to change?

    Look at configuration.h to see the number of the board that fits yours. I never used a 1.5.x board so hopefully other user can jump in to give you a hand on that.

      • 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.
