e3d v6 upgrade getting thermal sensor error on my Ultimaker 2

Posted · e3d v6 upgrade getting thermal sensor error on my Ultimaker 2

so i may have gotten a little carried away with the micro-torch to clear a clogged nozzle and i MAY have melted the thermocouple to the heater block. so i took opportunity of this time to upgrade to a E3d kit. i bought the 12v kit with 3mm fittings to use with the ultimaker. i just finished installing it and i'm getting some error for the thermal sensor. it is plugged in. so idk why its throwing this fit. i did not do any firmware update. is that needed? iv seen Youtube videos of these kits being installed along with an extruder too. however I'm sticking with the stock extruder and didn't think i would need the firmware update? anyone have any luck upgrading to the e3d kits?

    Hi @danz409,


    Well, this one do not fit you printer very well.  You'll need a 24 V heater and this "thermistor" is not as accurate as the PT100 platinum thermistor. (This is the one used in UM2).


    The better choice would be to upgrade to "the Olsson block".

    You could use the same heater and temp sensor as on an standard UM2, well if the wires is not ruined.?


    And sure the firmware need to be changed for the E3d kit.. I bought this kit in Japan, just because it was cheap, -but I'll never going to install this on my UM2+.


    Good luck

      • 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
