Bondtech QR Ultimaker 2 + firmware?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Bondtech QR Ultimaker 2 + firmware?

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?

Just a follow up for anyone interested. Martin from Bondtech replied to me via e-mail that evening with a new firmware for my printer. It has been printing like a champ ever since! :)

I'm really impressed with how well it works. I have not tried the UM2+ feeder as I already had the Bondtech one.
