Editing the firmware to adjust settings for a new feeder wheel

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I have recently discovered a guide which suggests all sorts of modifications to the Ultimaker for enhanced performance. You can find it here: https://github.com/StrawsonDesign/Ultimaker2_Mods/blob/master/Ultimaker%202%20Experiences%20and%20modifications.pdf

One of the best suggestions is to change the feeder wheel in the back of the feeder. The new part leaves a nice gap  for the filament to drop into, but naturally the diameter at that point is smaller. So they suggest to edit the firmware, namely to "change the feeder motor steps/mm" to a value of 327.

I have never done any modifications to the firmware, nor do I know how to manually upload the files to the printer. The explanations in the guide file are inconclusive.

Can anyone point me in the right direction on what I need to do?

In this screenshot you can see the necessary modification:

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
