New firmware issues?

Posted · New firmware issues?

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?

    Did you do a complete factory reset before installing? That seems to be an issue for a variety of people. I have not upgraded to the stable release yet (in the middle of prints) but will definitely do a reset.

    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....
