Posted · build plate temperature limit after firmware update

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.

      • 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
