UMO+ firmware problem with Cura 3.6.0

Recommended Posts

I flashed my UMO+ via USB with Cura 3.6.0, using the automatic option. This zombified my printer: It blanked its screen and seized up the steppers. I power cycled the printer, same result. When trying to home the printer via Cura, the only result was a grinding noise that lasted until I power cycled the printer.


I tried to re-flash the firmware several times, to no avail. 


I then downloaded Cura 15.4.6 and flashed the firmware from there. That solved it.

In Cura 3.6 there is a problem which offers the wrong firmware for the UMO+.

Ok, I suspected it was something in that vein. I just wanted to tell the story in case the problem wasn't already known.

Cure 3.51 should also work, but I don't know if the firmware is newer than 15.4.6.

From what I found reading up on my problem, there's no new firmware for the UMO+ since 15.4 or thereabouts, so I think I'm good. (Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.)

    • "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.
