Idea. New location for Z limit on UMO+

I still need to make a short youmagine page as well with my very simple sensor holder and quick instructions...

 

@amedee - while you are at it... :)

What about the camera holder from your video? Is this a raspi-cam?

Are the model files available somewhere?

    Updated firmware with https://bultimaker.bulles.eu/experimental and its perfect!

    Thank you Amedee :)

    I'm using Neotko's homing at bottom of bed modification.

    Also tried the software bed levering, very cool :)

    AND finally I have a nice *beep* instead of that hideous stock beep !!11

    I did an PID autotune....and was wondering would it make sense to be able to build

    a firmware and you could set the PID values in the online builder ?

    Last week i got lots and lots of MAX TEMP errors on bed (UMO HB upgrade kit) and I ended up removing the whole crappy connector and solder the wires for the sensor and power for bed directly on the bed.

    But now the room temperature readings are different....if I turn on printer its shows 24° on hotend and 20° on bed....maybe if my soldering have altered the effect on the sensor...also I need to use hotter bed to get stuff to stick...will autotune PID fix this difference or is that another matter (temp difference) ?

    I know I a getting an old post up again but I am trying tu fit this modification on my old Ultimaker original with a 32 bit board, custom heated bed and Marlin 2.0... I think some things have changed, I can't find the Prepare menu for example...

     

    Did somebody allready try this in marlin 2.0? (I am very bad at code... but I try to learn and understand)

     

    Thanks a lot!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
