Update Firmware and Cura - is the firmware already downloaded with Cura?

Recommended Posts

When I update the Ultimaker 3 firmware via the menu: Settings -> Maintanance -> Firmware update - does it get the firmware via ínternet from a server or is it already stored with the last cura download somewhere on my computer?

(In the second case, the order of updating firmware and Cura would make a difference, wouldn't it? )

It's bundled with Cura.

um, NO, Bad Jaime,  for the UM2 that is true, for the UM3 it is downloaded from the internet!

Settings -> Maintanance -> Firmware update will download a new firmware version from the internet.

P.S: If you have no direct internet connection you can also use images on a usb drive you'll have to download them separately but they'd be visible in that menu as well so in that case only no download happens.

    • "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.
