Looking for UM2+C firmware v1.6 beta testers

Posted · Looking for UM2+C firmware v1.6 beta testers

Dear forum users,

Ultimaker is looking for people who want to help testing the next firmware release for the UM2+ Connect printer.
The upcoming v1.6 release has large internal changes and we want to ensure we keep delivering the quality you are used to. Therefor, we are looking for enthusiasts who want to help us test this software. The release has been tested internally in Ultimaker, but different usage flows might show undetected bugs. Don't test this on printers with critical print jobs!
You can always revert to the current v1.5 firmware version from the update menu on the printer.
The most important change is the support for 11 international languages, besides most European languages we now support the Chinese, Korean and Japanese languages.
In order to implement this change, the graphical interface received a major update to be able to show the international characters.
Some other changes are:
- The diagnostic screen now shows the temperatures of all three temperature sensors
- Changed the screen layout for multiple screens to allow for showing more text. For example, the file selection screen now can show longer file names.
- Digital Factory now shows 'preparing' during initial heat-up instead of 'printing'
- Fixed some security vulnerabilities
- Print head in maintenance position (mid-front) now has the motors released, allowing for manual moving the print head
 -The Wifi setup screen was cropped on mobile phone in portrait mode
 Known issues:
 - The firmware update screen has not all texts translated
When you want to help Ultimaker in testing this release, then send an email to c.kielstra@ultimaker.com and you will receive a link for downloading the firmware.
You will also receive details for how to report any found issues.

The test period will end June 6 2022.

      • 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.
