Possible improvements in the Factory Reset Option

Recommended Posts

Hi, I would like to suggest you an improvement to the Factory Defaults reset option of the UM2.

During an investigation about a failure of my printer and after completing the first installation with success I have reset the printer to the factory defaults.

The problem was that the printer had already the filament loaded. As it was not possible to skip this step during the initial setup, the printer tried to load again the filament with the result of "consuming" the small piece of filament inside the feed motor.

The consequence was that the printer was not more able to feed the extruder.

PS:I have not checked if the problem is still present with the latest firmware upgrade.

    • "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.
