Ulticontroller & Heated Bed

Recommended Posts

I have recently installed a heated bed using MK2 PBC on Ultimaker. Now wanted to monitor the temperature of the heated bed on Ulticontroller. I compiled Marlin using Daid's Marlin builder and enabled heated bed temperature sensor according to the thermistor I used. I tested the bed temperature reading with Printrun and able to see the temperature accurately. But the temperature is not displayed on Ulticontroller. What is the settings required to see this temperature on Ulticontroller? I did google around and most mentioned nothing much required to be done and the temperature will be displayed automatically. Is there any other settings need to be done? I hope someone can help me.

I have found out the problem and it is due to the firmware. Need to get the firmware from source/github/Ultimaker/marlin and modify the define file. Configuration.h has changed as some of the things have been moved to Configuration_adv.h. Make sure the defines like BED_LIMIT_SWITCH is uncommented as well as TEMP_SENSOR_BED set to 1 or 6 depending on thermistor type. Normally 1 is good enough for most 100k thermistor. Use Arduino IDE to compile and upload the firmware to the Ultimaker.
