Which version works in Your Mac?

Hi all,

just finished assembling my Ultimaker. Phew!

But alas, it seems that getting software running is even bigger task than assembling the printer!

I am running Mac os X 10.5.8. I added the python and java was up-to-date.

I downloaded "UltiReplicatorG-0035-rc1-mac.dmg" which was presumably the latest up -to-date version of ReplicatorG

Well, it wont work. It starts up, but no user interface is visible.

No luck.

Then i downloaded "UltiReplicatorG-0025-beta1-mac.dmg", which really started up, i managed to update firmware etc. But there is problem with extrusion motor controller. While making tests (moving head xy direction and surface z dir, heater all good), the extrusion motor behaves oddly - the "forward" "stop" and "backward" buttons seem to make nothing or have time lag since pressing them to motor running like 2 minutes (or nothing at all). I read that i should use the latest soft (like ver 35) but it just wont start up correctly.

What are the posible solutions?

Thanks in advance

And all the best,

Taavi

    Actually, the plastic is slowly dripping out from the nozzle all-tough i see no visual indication that the extruders motor is turning gears forward...

    Did you heatup before trying the extrusion? The firmware protects you from extruding if the hotend is below 170C

    yes, i didn't to press "forward" when nozzle was under 210 C temperature

    but maybe the movement is really slow when the filament reches into the heating chamber. The motor run well when the plastic cable was not reached yet to the nozzle.

    Its probably because you are not running the latest java version. Check in terminal: "java --version", it should be 1.6.0_25 or higher (doing this out of my mind, but I do know it works with 1.6.0_31).

    Hello,

    I had the same issue.

    You need first to install RPG25, then to upgrade the firmware to the Marlin realease 2 (the last one) and then you must uninstall RPG25 to install RPG35.

    It will work. I did it this afternoon and i'm printing my first objects.

    I hope i'm enough clear .... sorry for my english.

    Have a good night

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (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.
