UltiController on 1.5.6

Recommended Posts

Posted · UltiController on 1.5.6


I have got a question. I can control my Ultimaker perfectly with UltiController. But the mainboard is not selfpowered. Do I need a patch with version 1.5.6?



However, for older electronics (under version 1.5.6) it is needed to patch the electronics to be 'self-powered' i.e. power the Arduino and UltiController from the 19V power adapter. Otherwise you still need to power it over USB.

thank you.

    It should not be needed on 1.5.6 electronics. You should have a ARDPWR jumper somewhere, maybe it's not connected on your board? This jumper makes the main board self powered.
