Firmware um3

Recommended Posts

System->Maintenance->Update Firmware

While hovering over that menu you get the current version at the bottom of the screen.

Inside that menu you can choose between "Stable" and "Testing", each of those will show a version number as well.

Note that updating to the testing version is a risk, even if it has a higher version number. As there could be bugs in there.

Daid,

My printer is located on a secured network and won't be able to connect to the firmware site.

Can we have a firmware link added to the resources page to download and install manually?

Thank you

When I have gone there (The link you have posted) it just says "Latest..."

How do you know which is the latest number vs what is on the machine?

 

To know that, you need to read the files that the Firmware read's to check if the firmware on the server is new or not

Doing some search on the python of the machine:

 

    __SYSTEM_UPDATE_URLS = {       "stable": {           "rootfs": "http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/latest.tar.xz",           "signature": "http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/latest.tar.xz.sig",           "version": "http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/latest.version",       },       "testing": {           "rootfs": "http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/testing/latest.tar.xz",           "signature": "http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/testing/latest.tar.xz.sig",           "version": "http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/testing/latest.version",

 

So there are 2 files.

Stable

http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/latest.version

Testing

http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/testing/latest.version

And indeed, you are right, Ultimaker should show what version you are going to download. Maybe that could be added with a simple query to the txt files @sandervg ?

    • "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.
