Posted · Ultimaker 2 dual extruder firmware needed

Hello,

 

the last two months I built my own ultimaker from scratch, and now it comes to the Firmware.

When searching the internet, i can‘t find any dual extruder FW 😞
 

I hav ealready tried it with the original firmware, but I am always getting a ER05 (Z Endstop defective)

 

anyway i wanted to ask you if someone could send me a working dual extruder Firmware:)

 

my specs:

ultimaker 2 extended housing

Ultimaker 2 board

extruder 1.75mm

dual extruder 

all the other parts are regulary Ultimaker 2 ones

 

I am looking forward to your comments;)

 

best regards,

 

Simon

 

 

Sorry for my bad english

    Ultimaker never released a dual extruder UM2 printer since we couldn't get it working as reliable we wanted. All 3D printers with a second nozzle have the problem that the other nozzle can damage your printed object, so special measures have to be taken to avoid that. For example, the UM3 printer changes the height of the second nozzle.

     

    You can download the UM2+ source code and then change the configuration settings to activate the 2nd nozzle, but without mechanical improvements to change the height of the other nozzle your project will never print reliable.

    I have the UM2Extened+ and Heat 1 has gone out on the contol board. Can I install the Firmware/software, move the hotend 1 heating cartridge and thermistor to the connections for HEAT2 and extruder1 to extruder2? I will only be able to use extruder2 in Cura, but will it work?

    thanks

    it depends... on what exactly is broken.

     

    One crucial point:
    For security reasons Marlin firmware requires at least a connected temperature sensor for each configured heater (doesn't matter if a heater element is actually connected).

      • 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
