firmware bug with E3D UM2 extrusion upgrade

Posted · firmware bug with E3D UM2 extrusion upgrade

Hi I encountered a bug when performing the E3D extrusion mod to my UM2.

after getting everything installed and doing all the firmware changes, i noticed that now the retraction settings in the printer cap the retraction speed at 20mm/s. even though it automatically sets it to 25 mm/s. if i click and enter the function to change it in the printer, it automatically drops it to 20mm/s and prevents me from setting it any higher.

just wondering where in the firmware i can find that setting so i can change it?

    This is the change that E3D put in the firmware. The 20 is for the extruder (x,y,z,e). Should be in the configuration.h file

    DEFAULT_MAX_FEEDRATE {300, 300, 40, 20} // (mm/sec)

    so i changed that value to 60 and uploaded the firmware directly from the arduino IDE and nothing changed, it is still capped at 20. I could not find any other value in the configuration.h file that could possibly change this

    Some changes only take effect after factory reset. So I would try that first.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
