Ultimaker 2 extended + with proper update now runs backwards (FIXED)

Recommended Posts


So i just got this Ultimaker 2 + extended printer and I went through the start up process with no problem but when I downloaded cura and updated the printer with the correct version the printers feeder started running backwards and I can not fix it whether its factory resetting it or retrying to update the printer and I have no idea what to do.

Also I bought it from a person on ebay so I have no clue what they were doing with it before but it seemed to run fine until I updated it with cura.

if anyone can help me that would be very helpful

if you are really sure that you create and "Ultimaker 2 Extended+" in Cura 2.5 and the uploaded the latest firmware, then everything should work fine.

Otherwise I could imagine that (for whatever reason) the other person reversed the wires on the feeder motor.

Usually this problem happens when the firmware thinks you have an Ultimaker 2 and not a 2+

    • "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.
