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?

    V4 Version update 24th August       The original idea didn't work, but all the Firmware changes (most of them) do work with this (I think final) version V4 that places the Endstop on the bottom.

    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!
