Ultimaker 3 Extended control board

Does anyone know the make and model # of the control board used in the Ultimaker 3 extended?


We just got ours and it printed 1 thing,  then the limit switch would not detect the print head on the X axis.  Now the printer will not power on.  I am in contact with the dealer,  but I would like to have some info going into this problem.

    There are several different boards in the printer; the main board (powers the motors and heaters), the Olimex board (wifi and camera modules, etc connect here), and the Ulticontroller board.

    Where are you located?


    Does the printer make any noises at all when you try to power it on? Depending on which (if any) noise it makes, there are a couple of potential causes.

    This is definitely a case where it's best off to work with your reseller on it.

    Good Day,


    Thanks for replying.   I am in New Brunswick Canada.  The only thing that happens is the exruder fan will turn on for approx 2 or 3 seconds,  then nothing happens.   The Olimex board has a red LED illuminated.  I attempted to flash the firmware again with instructions from the dealer and nothing happened (no LED flashed).  I suspect a bad Olimex board.

      • 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
