3DSolex locked out

Recommended Posts

Hiya,

Just been trying to print with my 3D solex hardcore and it gives me a message saying incompatible.

I then have to override it via cura connect but it seems to override everything including the the xy offset.

I changed the offset by +2 and -2 with no change.

What have you done with the firmware that doesn’t allow third party cores?

It’s a big issue for me as I need it desperately to work.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Rebekah Anderson.

You should be able to downgrade the firmware using the old files

Download tar and sig (signature) and follow the usb update instructions

I don’t have a um3 anymore but in theory that’s how to do it

I would agree with you there but when the print is offest by 2mm in the Y axis in the same direction. regardless of the offset within the calibration menu. I set it both to +2 and -2 and no change. I did do the calibration print and it was meant to be -2.

so if it's not that then what could it be? it used to be fine but since firmware upgrade it's been like this. having said this it was only last night that I needed to use the hardcore so I hadn't noticed it.

I don't think it would override the x and y offset, this is saved on the core eeprom, overriding is not a problem, it's just that the firmware doesnt detect the core as an aa or bb core

 

Offsets are saved on a temporal folder on the olimex. They can be removed by restore factory or going ssh and swimming into that

    • "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.
