Hi,

we have a UM2 at our company and I am thinking about switching it to the Tinker firmware.

Just two quick questions:

Does the FW play more nicely with octoprint than the original firmware?

And does it print Ultimaker GCode files from SD card?

 

The original only interpreted the Ultimaker GCode prefix if it was started from the LCD print menu.

 

If the Tinker FW solved these two issues it would be the icing on the cake with all features it brings along anyway.

Hi tinkergnome,

 

I've recently started printing with Octoprint. I'm directly using web interface without touchUI and additional screen. The firmware works really well with all the tuning options in LCD. The only main options missing are abort and pause. I'm trying to be able to abort print from the LCD menu. 

I did some searching and it seems impossible to communicate back to Octoprint for these commands. But could there be a work around such as telling the printer to disconnect from Octoprint/USB so the printer act like abort print?

 

Thanks a lot!

Ryan

I guess the demand is not very high, 'cause using the web interface is easier and works with every printer.

But technically it should be possible with "Action Commands" nowadays.

Thanks! This is exacty what I need. I’ll see if I could get it to work. Web interface is handy to send prints, but if I stand in front of a print and something goes wrong, it’s not as quick to cancel on LCD.

Has anyone had this problem with ocotprint.

 

I was using it today.

And everytime i hit print  the printer locks up.

 

Now if i remove the sd card in the ultimaker it works 100% fine.

 

I dont know if its just me and some type of hiccup or what.

 

*edit

 

Fix the problem in ocotprint.

octoprint  > setting > features
uncheck    enable sd support

 

Now it doesnt lock up when starting a start with sd in the printer.

My first guess is:

Check the settings of  "Advanced -> Preferences -> Print area"

I had this problem and it was Tinkergnome who fixed it for me 😁 

In the starting script, the nozzle wipe will be at Z0; tinkerware doesn't like that so set the wipe to Z0.1 and it should work ok. It's the Pull Away Filament line 👍

I have a UM2+   currently with the magnetic docking dual print setup and this FW and that is neat and works good.

 

I just acquired a UM3 print head assembly.

 

can I use this firmware to control the UM3 print head assembly while mounted in my UM2+ ?    I'm a super DIY savvy type  😉     I'll swap out the control board only if I really need to  🙂

I loaded version 18.11.1 to my UM2 ext+ today and started a routine print. In the middle of the job, it stopped, feeder pulled the filament completely out (exactly like when you want to change material), then after a few seconds printer continued printing with no filament of course! I paused it and fed the material back in manually and continued.

 

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?! It seems very strange.

assuming that the head fits mechanically and both heaters and temperature sensors are connected the same way as before, i don't see why it should not work. (the levelling sensor would be non-functional though)

This mod would need custom tool change scripts, no problem for a DIY oriented tinkerer... 🙂
