my Ultimaker 3 bricks today during a firmware update. Is there a possibility to manually re flash the Firmware on the Mainboard? I will hope so.

Thanks for your answers

    Hello Kai,

    Sorry to hear you had problems while updating the firmware.

    The instructions of @gr5 should help you get your UM3 unbricked.

    But to satisfy our curiosity, do you remember from which version you were trying to upgrade?

    I'd assume you wanted to upgrade to the stable version?

    I hope you can answer those questions for me.

    thank you for your answers. The Ultimaker life's again. Was an really easy fix.

    I don't know wich firmware was from wich version I was trying to upgrade. But I think that it was my fault. Cause I was trying to change the material during the upgrade and the printer gets a power loss for a short time.

    Now I get the message, that the active leveling failed https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/23158-active-leveling-correction-failed

    But printing with manual leveling works perfekt.

      • 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
