New Firmware Problem with Ultimaker 2?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Upon launching Cura today I was prompted to download the newest version of the software, along with a Firmware update. After doing so, I can't successfully load new material into the Ultimaker 2. The issue, specifically, is that the feeder is overfeeding the filament. Back in the good old days (yesterday), the "change filament" routine worked beautifully: you'd hand thread the filament into the feeder until it grabbed hold, wait until the filament reached the first clip on the bowden tube, and then press the click wheel to speedily advance the filament toward the hot end. Just before reaching the hot end the feeder would slow down. That is no longer the case, as the feeder continues advancing the filament at a high rate of speed for a second or two too long, slamming the filament into the hot end, failing to extrude, and then grinding down the filament to a state where it can't be further fed toward the hot end.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

Thanks ahead of time for your help and suggestions.
