Ultimaker 2 "This file will override machine setting with setting from the slicer" HELP!

Recommended Posts

I updated the firmware and panicked because my printer wouldn't turn on. When I try to turn on the printer, only the little fan would turn on, but nothing else. So I tried to update the firmware either way as if it was on, and miraculously the printer turned back on. What a relief! now theres another issue now. When I try to print some of my old files that i saved on my sd card, this pops up : "This file will override machine setting with setting from the slicer"

When i clicked continue, the heat bed doesn't turn on.

Only newly saved Gcode models will print like normal. What happened to the Gcode recently?

The Ultimaker2 uses UltiCode flavour g-code. The ulitmaker original uses rep-rap flavour g-code.

The reprap flavour g-code has temperature commands in it, whereas the UM2 uses material defaults. If an UM2 gets rep-rap flavour g-code, you get that warning (eg; The setting tells the temperature all of the sudden).

My guess is that you have an UMO and installed UM2 firmware.
