Material Feed is reversed


Recommended Posts

Posted · Material Feed is reversed

Hi I haver just updated my Ultimaker 2 to the 2+ using the upgrade kit and everything went well however when I try to feed filament the motor direction is reversed. I have seen several other people on the forum with the same issue but no real solution does anyone know how to fix this. I have installed the printer as both U2 and U2+ and upgrade both times to the latest firmware and its still the same. I have the latest cura also. Are the motors in the kits wired incorrectly? or is this a firmware issue? If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it as after a £400 upgrade my machine is no longer working.

 

Thanks

    Hi undertherain,

     

    If you just upgrade from "the real UM2" to the UM2+, without all the changes needed, you might have a reveres feeder as a result (plus feeding much to fast).

     

    The thing is; an upgrade to UM2+, also ask for a new feeder installation. Yes, you have to change the whole feeder unit into a new one that is rotating the other direction. There is also a different speed for the feeder as this also will feed very much to fast(to much feed)..

     You need to change the feeder unit with the one needed for this software change, or you have to change the number of feeding steps and the direction of feeder back to revert back to standard UM2 settings.

     

    Thanks

     

    Regards

     

    Torgeir.

      • 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
