Issues with new 5.3.0 firmware

Posted · Issues with new 5.3.0 firmware

Hi.. we have updated Ultimaker 3 with firmware 5.3.0 but after installation the printer kept showing that the firmware still needs updating- it kept doing this on a loop. Also after the update the printer lost connection over the network.  Sometimes it's connected for a few seconds and then it loses connection. CURA version is 4.11.0.  Anyone experiencing this please? And any tips? Thanks

    Regard the update loop, here is an explanation, but you can just ignore it:

     

    I think any other issues you see with 5.3.0 are not related to the firmware, because the only change in 5.3.0 is that UM has renewed the root ca certificates for the digital factory connection.

    Yes but well, not exactly...

    For the UM3 specifically we did have to change a lot, we're not sure why, but we had to enable TLSv1.3 to get it to work with the new certificate, previously TLSv1.2 was fine, to do that we had to update python, libssl and all it's dependencies including the indirect dependency that is nginx (the web-server on the printer) .

    So there are quite a few changes, though none "should" have influence on printing and the printer applications.

    We did have to update some standard packages to get the WiFi working correctly, though I haven't seen or heard about any problems like this. If you are on WiFi, can you check if you experience the same problems when connecting trough Ethernet (wired cable).

    Thanks für the clarification, I am not a full time python developer, but I do a lot of python in our company, so I can imagine that it was a hard weekend for all of you guys.

     

    So thanks for your work to bring a fix for the SSL issue so fast!

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
