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.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
