UltiController on 1.5.6

Recommended Posts


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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
