How do I know what is the current firmware version? Ultimaker 2+

Posted · How do I know what is the current firmware version? Ultimaker 2+

I can't find the current version listed anywhere. I just downloaded Cura 3.0.4 and when I tried to update the firmware on my Ultimaker 2+, I got halfway through and then said it has a connection problem. Firmware is listed as 2.6.2. Is this the latest? BTW the connection problem happens EVERY TIME. Help please.

don't know what the latest firmware is, as I use tinker firmware myself.

If you can't update from cura 3.0.4 you can try to update from an older (15.xx) version of cura. You can install the 15.xx version next to the new cura versions.

Just select "install custom firmware" and select the correct .hex file in the folder of your cura 3 installation. (C:\Program Files\Cura 2.7\resources\firmware)

In general there's no real point to update the firmware on a Ultimaker2 with every cura update, as there are not much developments in it anymore (compared to the UM3, where you should update firmware....)

You may also want to try a different USB cable.
