Material Feeder in reverse for Ultimaker 2 Extended +.

Recommended Posts

I recently got an Ultimaker 2 Extended +. The material feed worked. I connected to Cura 2.5 and got firmware update. Now, the material feeds in reverse. Now the firmware version: Maintenance/version Vers:_2.4ex

I loaded Custom firmware Program Files/Cura 2.5/Resources/Firmware MarlinUltimaker2extended-plus.hex but it did not solve the problem.

I will appreciate any help getting the correct firmware or other solutions.

The newest "plus" feeder is geared, thats why it's roting in the wrong direction if you use the incorrect firmware;

If you have this white feeder, you have an Ultimaker 2 (ext) PLUS, so you need the plus firmware;


If you have the old black feeder, like below, you need the Ultimaker (ext) firmware WITHOUT the plus in the name;oldfeeder.thumb.png.6a19a0c0e55034cbeb736fdf6ac75a89.png

    • "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.
