Posted · Klipper on Ultimaker 3?



I only realized after buying my current Ultimaker 3 Extended that its marlin implementation is kinda lacking, for example no linear advance and some other smaller things. What i hoped to help was the Tinkergnome firmware but it doesn't work on the UM3.

I just realised, the board is a somewhat standard RAMPS type board with the classical ATmega 8bit chip and the firmware is based on Marlin so does anobody know if I could get klipper to work with it? Has perhaps anybody had any success with this?

    I don't think it is impossible, but it will be a lot of work and you will loose some functionality (such as automatic filament detection, printcore detection, the Digital Factory). Other functionality you will likely have to reimplement from scratch (tool changing, nozzle offset calibration, material changing).

        (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.
