Hello I have a few Ultimakers extended 2 + today i did a software update to them, after this when  i tried to insert material in instead of pushing it forward it will extract it!!! Basically the process of inserting material inverted , same for model printing!!

The UM2 and the UM2+ have reverse direction feeders.  You got the wrong software.  If you have a white feeder on your UM2 then use the "plus" firmware.  If you have a black feeder on your UM2 then don't use the "plus" firmware.  Just regular UM2 extended.

I forgot to mention you want to do a FACTORY RESET on the menu.  Some of those things (like steps/mm for the E axis) are stored in the eeprom area and different versions of the firmware (marlin) store it in different places so it's best to do a FACTORY RESET after installing firmware unless it was definitely 100% an increase in version from one UM official release to another official release.

 

For example if you switch to tinkerMarlin or from tinkerMarlin you definitely want to do a FACTORY RESET.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
