Color of LED different on new UM3 from old UM3

Recommended Posts

Posted · Color of LED different on new UM3 from old UM3

Not sure what I may have done in the past, but my first UM3X has a warmer color in the lighting strips.

 

The new one I just received has a much bluer, hurts my eyes a bit, light.

 

Is there a way I do not remember, or know, that I can do to make them both match? I do like the warmer color much better.

I can't compare, but going by your description, mine probably has the new blue-white light.

 

I don't think you can change the color temperature, that's probably because of the actual LEDs in there.

 

What you can change is the intensity. There's an option somewhere in the settings to lower the brightness. It's also available during the print.

I have put it fairly low, but if you put it too low, the lights will start to flicker, which is even worse to my eyes (but my wife doesn't even seem to notice, so I guess that's a personal thing :) ).
