build plate temperature limit after firmware update

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I recently purchased the Ultimaker 2 Extrusion upgrade kit, installed it in my UM2 and very glad with it.

however, i just recognized that since the firmware upgrade to 15.04.5 that i was supposed to do straight before using my UM2+ the build plate temperature now can be set only to a maximum of 100°C.

Well, I am using a permanent build plate cover sheet which requires a temperature of approx. 112°C for optimal stickiness of ABS.

the menu on the printer does allow only a max. of 100°C and even if using simplify3d any attempt to set higher temperature than 100°C does not exceed this magic threshold now.

does anyone have a hint for me, how to shift this limiting threshold?

thanks a lot in advance!

Christian

Save that somewhere! You might need to downgrade to "tinker 16.03.1" at some point in the future if a future release of tinker doesn't let you go above 100c bed temp.

It's not too hard to build your own firmware. The max temperatures are extremely easy to edit (in Configuration.h - very well commented) once you figure out how to build Marlin.

    • "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.
