How do you check for firmware updates?

Recommended Posts

Firmware upload is done by Cura, if you want to upload version 15.04 of the firmware, download that version of Cura and choose upload firmware from the machine menu.

You can also upload firmwares you download by choosing upload custom firmware and pointing to the hex file of the firmware you downloaded.

So you have to connect the printer to the pc for updating? You can't output the firmware to the sd card and flash it?

Also, is it best to stick with the standard cura, or go with the beta? I see it hasn't been updated in 6 or 7 months, and that the beta doesn't even list the new + printers.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
