Ultimaker 2+ Extended XY Calibration


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2+ Extended XY Calibration



I remember printing an XY calibration print when I first got my machine. I would like to do this again after all this time and having just done some serious maintenance. Would someone be able to link me to those instructions? I enjoy using this machine and would like to get it back to how it was when I first got it. Thanks in advance.

    Do you really have an UM2+ Extended? Because XY calibration is needed for the dual printers like UM3, S3 or S5, but not for single extruder ones. So there is no XY calibration for an UM2+

    Yes. I have metta tagged photos from the evening of Sun, Dec 18, 2016 when I received it. Attached is from about 20 mins ago and proves that I do have an UM2+ Extended.


    I also have purchased an additional hot end during the + upgrade period (`~$400) and have had some success running 2 materials with Tinker-Firmware.


    I do remember running the XY print as part of the unboxing. I can share more photos if needed to prove my story.

    The only thing you do in the initial setup routine is to level the bed. But for sure no XY calibration.


    But can you explain what you mean with this calibration? Maybe you can remember some parts.

      • 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
