Ultimaker 3: Firmware v4.2.9 | Test version

Recommended Posts

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.
