Change e steps from ultimaker 3


Recommended Posts

Posted · Change e steps from ultimaker 3



I want to install bondtech extruders for my Ultimaker 3. In the bondtech manual it is only shown to change the e steps until the firmware version 4.2.5 . My printer has the version 5.3.0 . 

For the version 4.2.5 the code is "vi /usr/share/griffin/griffin/machines/um3.json" 

What is the code for the 5.3.0 version? With the same code I get another result. 




Best regards

    the location hasn't changed, the only think I see is that the axes (E X Y, z etc)  was changed to lowercase! (e, x, y, z)
    and I do note that the manual has it in upper case.

    though I would recommend making a file in
    /var/lib/griffin/machines as this is kept between updates to firmware.
    you can put a um3.json file in there that inherits from /usr/share/griffin/griffin/machines/um3.json so that it changes only those properties (or use the specific filename for your printer model as I've done in the attached file).
    so you should be able to copy the attached file to /var/lib/griffin/machines (after you run mkdir /var/lib/griffin/machines)

    good luck either way!
