Switching the UltiController sound off - any ideas?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm really pretty satisfied with my UM1, but one thing is really annoying: When the button on the Ulticontroller is pressed, there is a really horrible noise from the piezo.

Is there any possibility to decrease the volume?

Or is the only solution a soldering iron to get rid of this sound? :mrgreen:

Any idea is welcome...

@Daid: sounds good I think that's it for me ;)

btw: do you have any comment to this question? http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/4535-calculating-required-filament-in-layers-view/

@Dim3nsioneer: thanks for the hint, but that's a little bit too dangerous I think - never change a running system ;) . May be I will try it later...

@Nick: You're a lucky one :)

Thanks for your replies.

just to make this thread useful for others in future:

As I were going to connect my raspberry with my UM1 it came to my attention that I have to change the firmware and I visited the link from Dimensioneer.

There I just change the Baud rate for the connection and put the new firmware on my UM. After that the sound was pretty quiet. So there ist no button or slider to regulate the volume - just the firmware from the Marlin builder and everything is fine - perfect solution :)

Thanks to all.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
