UM3 Firmware update hang up

Recommended Posts

I began the firmware update for my UM3 but we lost network connection for a while and now the printer is hung up at "updating motion controller"  and has been there for a couple of hours. Can I turn the machine off and try again? Any help going forward would be much appreciated I don't want to brick this thing.

This is positive as the motion controller is the last component being updated and it means all other parts have succeeded. Rebooting the machine shouldn't be a problem as it will check the motion controller to have the most recent version at every boot and update then when necessary.

    • "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.
