Cura 13.06.4 and heated bed support

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 13.06.4 and heated bed support

Hello!

When installing Cura 13.06.4, at some point the installer asks if the Utimaker is equiped with a heated build platform.

If I answer "Yes", what are the heated platform setup that will be used? (Model of the temperature sensor, type of control of the bed's heating plate...)

Best regards and "NICE JOB" this new Cura!

None, it will tell you that it cannot install a firmware for your setup and that you should arrange your own firmware.

Ok, Thanks for the answer...

Is there a place where I can have reliable and up-to-date data on how to "arrange my own firmware"?

Thanks Daid,

This one seems to work pretty well now. I know at least one person who has used it successfully:

http://marlinbuilder.robotfuzz.com/

If you find any bugs post back here and I will make sure he knows to fix it. He is very fast at fixing bugs. Or you can use that site only to get the Configuration.h file, then inspect it yourself and build it yourself. Here is a site that explains all the steps to download marlin, download the ide and build it command line (although building it through the GUI is even easier):

When building Marlin 90% of the effort is in carefully editing Configuarion.h. That Marlinbuilder website (first link above) does this for you.

    • "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.
