Extruder turns the wrong direction

Recommended Posts

Ha @Koenie,

welcome to the forums. It looks like you have probably installed a firmware which was not meant for your Ultimaker model. Depending on what Ultimaker you have, your feeder can have a geared feeder (or not). A gear makes your feeder more powerful, but it also 'reverses' the motion. In the firmware this means that, if your feeder has a gear, we have to have the feeder run backwards, and the gear will convert this in a forward motion.

I would recommend to double check what firmware you need, which fits your Ultimaker, and install that on your machine.

Good luck!

i have a ultimaker 2 with the small black feeder, this means that it is not geared.

i also have version 14.12.1.

i update the firmware to marlin ultimaker 2.hex. and it still moves the wrong way.

someone a other solution?
