UM2 + feed motor running in reverse direction


Recommended Posts

Posted · UM2 + feed motor running in reverse direction

Our UM2+ has been a work horse and has given us many hours of service without any problems. A week ago we noticed the filament was feeding in reverse as it was printing. When we tried to change the material reversing the material fed the filament forward and not in reverse. Sending a command to feed the material forward sends the material into reverse. We tried what the forums suggested and loaded an UM2 + EXTENDED  configuration. This still didn't fix the problem. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    This happens a lot.  There are 2 likely possibilities but the most likely is that you have the wrong firmware.  The UM2 firmware rotates backwards from the UM2+ firmware.  So make sure you have the white UM2+ feeder and install the "plus" firmware.  Or if you have the black feeder then install the UM2 plain firmware.

      • 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
