Heated Bed not working with Ulticontroller enabled

Recommended Posts

Posted · Heated Bed not working with Ulticontroller enabled

So my heated bed has been working great:

But I just hooked up an Ulticontroller i just got, and enabled the Ulticontroller using Daid's excellent firmware builder at:

http://daid.eu/~daid/marlin_build/

And the heated bed no longer works (It was still configured for the heated bed). If I upload firmware without the Ulticontroller enabled the heated bed works.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks Daid. I just rebuilt the firmware and still the same issue. Any ideas?

I have the same issue earlier and I resort to download from github/ultimaker/marlin to build it manually. You need to uncomment the #define BED_LIMIT_SWITCHING or #define PIDTEMPBED depending on if you are using a relay or MOSFET to control your bed. Also, don't forget to uncomment the #define ULTICONTROLLER and TEMP_SENSOR_BED to enable the temperature monitoring.

Thanks magicxman, that did the trick! I am using the onboard MOSFET so I enabled PIDTEMPBED.

You should download the hex file, most browsers show the contents of it (lots of letters and numbers), so you need to right click on it and choose "save file"

I can explain this for dummies

"I have the same issue earlier and I resort to download from github/ultimaker/marlin to build it manually.

I find github/ultimaker/marlin to build it manually.
