What firmware to use with UMO+


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · What firmware to use with UMO+

Hi,

I am wondering what is the best choice of firmware to use with the UMO+?

At the moment I'm using Cura 3.0.4 and loaded the firmware that came with this cura.

There is a gcode file on the sdcard that I'm using, that for some reason doesn't work anymore.

The heated bed and head don't heat up even if i'll wait an hour.

This is a gcode file that was made with cura 15.04.6

It's no problem that this doesn't work.

Tough it's the reason that rose the question what is the best or recomended firmware to use for the UMO+.

Is it better to leave the firmware from 15.04.6 in the printer, or should I load the firmware that came with 3.0.4?

Thanks!

    Also note that the last code change in the official UMO/UMO+ firmware branch is dated January 2015, so all UMO/UMO+ firmwares coming with Cura since 15.04 are exactly the same (to be precise, use the same source code, as they are re-build each time and have different build dates) -- So there is no best, they are all equal ;)

    My fork offers (minor) bug fixes and additional goodies. It is widely used and safe to use.
