Firmware upgrade without USB?

Recommended Posts

I've not been able to connect my Ultimaker original via USB for some time. I've read many threads about this issue and tried all suggestions but it won't connect to a range of machines from XP to windows 8.

For printing no problem but as time moves on I'm updating cura but don't seem to have a means of updating the firmware, can this be done via the SD card? or is there some other way of doing this?

Thanks

Geoff

Some people have found that if they remove the arduino from their PCB it can upgrade whereas when mounted on the PCB it won't upgrade. This makes no sense to me but whatever.

I recommend you buy a new arduino. They are cheap. What country are you in? Here in the USA you can get one for $20 on ebay which includes shipping costs. I believe you want the mega 2560.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
