Ulticontroller to sitch LED light on and off


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ulticontroller to sitch LED light on and off

I am about to install some LED lights on my Ultimaker and would like to be able to turn them off during long prints.

The easiest solution would be to add a switch.

But if it is possible to write firmware so that I can turn my LED lights on and off with the Ulticontroller that would be great.

    edit. I read that a bit too quickly. I see now that you wanted to add additional lights and control those. Maybe you can hook them into the factory installed lights and control them that way?

    You can adjust the brightness level in the "Tune" menu during a print. Or you can use Maintenance -> Advanced -> LED Settings to change both behaviour and brightness.

        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.
