Posted · Ultimaker 3: Firmware v4.2.9 | Test version

The test versions are always based on the latest stable version with some newly added functionalities and improvements. Before we add these functionalities into the stable version we would like to hear what you think of them! 

 

Before you start testing, we would like to warn you this is a testing version, so it may contain bugs. If you are working on an important or time sensitive project we recommend you continue to use the stable version. 

 

Moving on, these are the release notes for test version TESTING v4.2.90.20180112-test

 

Known Issues:

  • This release is not available as installer image for new machines. This version is only available as the compressed-file variant for menu based installation of the network or via a USB stick. 

 

Bug fixes:

  • Firmware updates sometimes failed to be able to update the Marlin part at first installation of the firmware
  • Marlin temperature readings fixed - even with prior changes, spikes in measurement still could occur.
  • In the case of an invalid machine identification, selecting a material would yield an empty list from which no return was possible, except for power-cycling the printer. Now it will show a message and have the option to return to the previous menu. Note: if this still happens, it's recommended to contact your reseller.

 

User experience:

  • Improved support for mouse and trackball as a replacement for the dial-wheel/button. 

 

Web API

  • When the client is authenticated, the endpoint HTTP://<printer_ip>/print_job/gcode will allow you to download the gcode of the object currently being printed. 

 

Other:

  • Several other tiny bug fixes and improvements.

 

So, ready to start testing? The testing firmware version is available for download through the menu on your Ultimaker 3 / Ultimaker 3 Extended. Go to ‘System’ => ‘Maintenance’ => ‘update firmware’ and select ‘Testing version’. You can also use it to go back to the latest stable version at any time!

    If the client is authenticated, you can use the endpoint HTTP: // <Printer_IP> / Print Job / Gcode to download the Gcode of the currently printed object. ....... this function is cool .... I sometimes annoyed quickly printed on wifi and the gcode was gone .... will there be a function where you can store the gcode on the usb stick?

    There have been no plans for that as far as I know, but I will inform our PO about the request.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
