M300 gcode?

Recommended Posts

I decided to give OctoPrint a try, and have been having fun adding custom controls for various things (especially the "tune" features that aren't available from the front panel when printing via USB).

I'm working on a set of buttons to make atomic pulls more convenient, and I would like to have the printer beep when the hotend reaches its target temperatures, so I don't have to sit there watching the numbers. The Ultimaker 2 with Marlin firmware (which I have) is supposed to support the M300 ("play beepsound") command, and there are several hits on Google where people indicate that they're using M300 with their Ultimakers (for notifying them when it's heated up, playing tunes when a print is finished, and so on).

However, when I send an M300 command to the printer (e.g. M300 S440 P250 for a quarter-second 440 Hz tone), it returns an "ok" response, so I know it received it, but it doesn't actually make any noise. The printer does make sounds when I use the jog wheel, so is there anything special I need to do to enable it to respond to the M300 command?

    Maybe they took that capability out of the firmware, then. Pity. I suppose I could make noise by moving the build platform up and down a couple of times instead.

    Maybe this helps

     

    Thanks. That's actually one of the the sources I used when trying to get sounds into my custom control scripts - but it's not working for me.

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
