Posted · change S3 firmware

Hi fellows,

 

 

I am currently using UM S3. I found the active leveling of s3 (and many other functions) is really annoying. Too many points for correction and take a long time. I used to have a UM3, however, it is broken. So I bought a new S3. I am wondering if I could replace the current firmware of S3 with old firmware of UM3? Does anyone tried that? Thanks for your help, I really appreciate that.

In case you would find a way to install the "wrong" firmware (which is not so likely as Ultimaker certainly thought of users accidentally installing a wrong firmware) you probably would find the printer not working properly as the S3 has different electronics than the Ultimaker 3. In the worst case you might damage the printer.

Does that answer your question?

Thanks a lot for your answer. Is there a way to change the active leveling of S3? I am wondering if it could do the same way as UM3.

This is impossible. with UM3, S3 and S5, there is no way to "tweak" and certainly not change the software. Also, these are expensive machines, in case of damaging you probably are in for a huge bill.

I feel your frustration, if you think it takes a long time to level the plate, try using a S5 😉But in the proces of printing, this is a  negligible amount of time, to get it right from the first time.

Better to take a few min to start a print than to lose a print 10 hours in due to a bad first layer.
