New firmware issues?

Recommended Posts

I recently updated the firmware (week ago or something) on the UM3E per question in the LCD panel (was running a beta firmware).

What I see happening now (using Ultimaker black PLA with NFC) is that the movements on the first layer now also draw material. Furthermore, a 2 day print (crashed after a day because of some supposed error in the file... that happens more b.t.w.) showed "spider webs" in between all the printed components, way more than usual.

Anybody experiencing similar problems?

Can I go back to an older firmware to test if this is related?

Thanks for the reply, I did not factory reset the UM3E before updating. I'll look into that.

What I did notice is that somehow the retraction option was disabled in the model. I certainly did not touch that (unless it had to be an accidental flick of the switch). Maybe caused by the limited view on the print parameters....

    • "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.
