Bondtech QR Ultimaker 2 + firmware?

Recommended Posts

I've upgraded my UM2 to a UM2+ with the upgrade kit but I kept my Bondtech extruder instead of using the new feeder. I went ahead and updated the firmware to UM2+ like the instructions said and then realised that on my UM2 I had installed a custom firmware form Bondtech.

Is there a firmware from Bondtech for the UM2+? Or just use the UM2 firmware that is on their site?

I'm itching to start printing but don't want to start until I get that sorted out.

Thanks in advance!

Joel

Ok, I just did a quick test with the UM2+ firmware by running through the material change option.

My Bondtech feeder is now going is reverse. Would changing the E-steps to a negative number be an easy way to reverse the feeder direction? So instead of setting my E-Steps to M92 E492.45

I could save it as

M92 E-492.45?

    • "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.
