Running UMO+ without heated bed

Posted · Running UMO+ without heated bed

I haven't used my UMO+ for a while, since I messed up my heated bed. I haven't been able to figure out what messed up my bed, even with replacement parts. But for the time being I want to run it without the heated bed, so I can at least get back to basic prints. I know printing without a heated bed isn't optimal, but at least it should work. 

 

I've reinstalled everything, but disconnected the bed. However, I get the MAXTEMP error when I turn on my printer. How do I get my printer to ignore the error and run without the bed? I read something about firmware changes, but I can't figure out what to change?

    You printer still thinks there is a heated bed and wants to read the temperature from the sensor. So you definitely need to tell the printer that there is no heated bed anymore.

     

    I don't know the UMO, but I guess you just need to upload another firmware.

    Yeah, I already guessed I had to fix this in the firmware. What I can't figure out yet is how to do this, as firmware builds are not really my cup of tea.  

     

    My approach would be to grab a Marlin configuration file for the UMO+ and somehow adjust that for the printer to ignore the heated bed completely. But I can't figure out which parameters influence this and how to do this. Or is there a firmware version out there that works and has the bed turned off by default?

    Personally i would use bultimaker, made by @amedee

    That's the standard tool every UMO(+) owner should know about:

      • 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
