Filament going the reverse way !

Recommended Posts

I had a strange behaviour of my Ultimaker 2 extended yesterday : the filament was going backward !

The feeder was confusing up and down, back and forth. Impossible to move filament except with the advanced settings.

The answer was given to me by Sander : I did a wrong firmware update, using the UM2+Ext firmware instead of the UM2 Ext.

So, for those like me that a dumb enough to download the wrong driver and before your take a screwdriver to unmounted the feeder, or before crying on the shoulder of the support : check the firmware !!!

Yours,

John Doe (so ashamed!)

NB : thanks for Sander vG. who did promptly solve my problem. Not only this company makes excellent products but they also deliver great services. Who wants more ?

    • "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.
