Ultimaker Firmware 5.2 stable

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker Firmware 5.2 stable

After I had my WiFi card replaced at the reseller, I was able to update to the latest firmware successfully. 

So far so good. Although I've only done a few basic prints. 

And I can turn the frame light off!!! At last 🙂

Also, over theweekend, the S5 failed to detect when my UM PVA stopped feeding. 


Same on my Ultimaker 3 with 5.2.11

The UM3 series did not and still does not have a feeder detection. So, it would not be expected to notify you when you run out or fail to feed filament.

Yes, every time when UM3 can't be connect I will go to "Connect via Network". For situation (3), no printer is listed so I will click on "Refresh" several times. But UM3 is still not listed. After power-cycle UM3, it will be listed in Cura automatically.

 

I have this happen too.  It's weird that when I have to click refresh multiple times and it finally does show the printer, the connect button doesn't seem to do actually anything, almost like it is already connected at that point.  The issue is sporadic, sometimes it will go days without having this problem.  This problem appeared after the 5.2.8 upgrade, which required some kind of stepping stone firmware upgrade to finally get to 5.2.8 at the time.  The same time as the drifting UI began happening for me.

Tried to update today using the menu and a wired connection but just get the "Checking for Updates" screen indefinitely.

Right... I was convinced of the opposite... How is this implemented technically ? is there a chance that this comes as an upgrade sooner or later ?

It would require a new sensor and firmware updates cannot add a new physical sensor, they can only read from an existing sensor if it exists.

Technically it's simple, it would just mean an upgrade with the S5 feeders, and implementation in the firmware like in the S5. But it's not very interesting for Ultimaker to do so, so I'm pretty sure this will not happen. At some point there will probably be a successor for the UM3 that will get this (and at the same time fix the lack of abrasive resistant feeder on the UM3)

 

edit: not saying the technique is simple, Ultimaker struggled for years with it... but now it's ready on the S5 it should be simple to move to a new machine....

I cannot find the thread at the moment, but I believe that UM said that they would not be making and selling an upgrade for the UM3 to implement the feeder sensor. Their decisions was based on both financial and technical reasons, as far as I can remember. @SandervG, perhaps you could confirm and give more explanations on that decision, please?

The Ulti 3 has cabling from the mainboard which terminates in an unused plug inside both of the feeders, so it would look like everything bar the physical switch and firmware mod is already in place - so it shouldn't take much implementing really

Note that a new version of the plugin, which singles out Ultimaker 3 and S5 printers, is now available in the Marketplace. This fixes this issue, specifically for these printers.

 

Following on from your concerns about how this new version would work and make processing of the new height slower by changing every instance of the gcode, are you happy with this version ?, is there any downsides to using this ?

Those concerns are mostly theoretical; a feeling that this should not be necessary. I still think this should be fixed properly in the firmware, but until it is the current implementation in the latest version of the plugin should work just fine.

Thanks, I have just installed it and looked at the Gcode, it looks to do what is required, will try a print shortly. As you say it should be fixed in firmware. It's not possible to print PETG for example without extra offset so something is needed

UM3E

Since my reseller is incompetent, these forums get a bit of attention instead.

Still having this issue with the latest update. This is after a factory reset.

Only thing I haven't tried would be downgrading.

 

I was under the impression that the latest update resolved this.

Any hints would be welcome as the printer becomes unresponsive after a while.

Been browsing/reading a bunch of topics regarding this issue.

Connected a LAN cable and switched to that (from WiFi) -- hoping this keeps the printer working for now.

Switching to a LAN connection is the way to go -- I'm able to print without issue and the printer is not locking up nor is the display acting up. I'm happy~
