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.

    • "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.
