Disable auto reset on UM2+

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

I'm looking to disable the auto reset that happens when you open the serial port on my UM2+.

 

On the other printers I've got it was a simple case of removing the capacitor on the DTR line of the FTDI chip and then I can send commands to the printer and read back the status while printing from an SD card.

 

Is there a similar capacitor on the UM2+ that can be removed?

 

Cheers

 

Jamie

Yes, if I start a print from the SD card then during the print I open the comm port to send a M27 command for example, the printer resets.  I would like to open the comm port during a print to send commands without the printer resetting.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
