cura 2.3 upgrade

Recommended Posts

Changing the line width has almost the same effect as changing the nozzle width. If you have an um2 with olson block, just use a UM2+ machine. This allows you to change the nozzle in Cura.

Does this change fit all the parameters of an Ultimaker 2 ?

I mean the pieces that are differents between the two printers (fan, motor ..)

Thanks

From the software perspective there isn't that much difference between an um2 and um2+. As long as you don't do the firmware update (because then it will select the wrong firmware) all should be well.

And what do we do if the firmware update was done quite some time ago? Revert back? Ugh..

This may not be the right place, but could we please get nozzle diameter adjustment added to the list of to do's? I'd appreciate the functionality, otherwise I'm stuck on 2.1.x

Thanks.

Umm lets explain some basic stuff that might help.

If you choose UM2 or UM2+, as long as you don't update the firmware, it doesn't matter.

So you have a UM2 with Olsson? Choose UM2+ and DONT update the firmware. If you need to update the firmware just select UM2. Since you can have more than one machine settings this is very easy to do.

Also @nallath since Ultimaker did sell officially a UM2 + Olsson upgrade, shouldn't Cura has a 'UM2 + Olsson'. Or just a check called 'Olsson Block Installed'. Or just a json duplicated that points to um2 firmware and enables the nozzle size.

Anyway not my problem. But could be easier for users to understand how to proceed.

I added exactly that (an UM2 Olsson Block upgrade option) to Cura somewhere back in March or so, but PM decided against it (and to remove the code) because there were no resources to properly test the profiles needed with an upgraded UM2.

My problem is that the firmware has already been updated some time ago, and I'd rather not revert back. I like the idea of a Olsson block checkbox, but it seems that got nixed. No 2.3.x for me it seems. :(

I think you still misunderstand me. You don't need to change anything on your machine. Just select UM2+ in Cura. Tadaa, it works.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
