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.

    Lastest firmware use to be on lastest cura. There's no update log, history or anything. Unless you can digest github.

    So yes, firmware = latest cura. Not very intuitive.

    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.

    Yes. No.

    Cura, beta. Don't know, I don't use it anymore.

     

    if you don't use cura, what do you use?

    I use old cura to upload custom firmwares.
