Firmware history?

Recommended Posts

I haven't upgraded my Ultimaker firmware since receiving it last year.

I believe most of the upgrades to date have been for the Ultimaker 2 but was curious if there was a post/page that showed the history of the firmware versions and what was changed or improved (much like you would see on HP, etc)

Thanks!

You might get a better idea of the changes by looking at the commits in github here:

https://github.com/Ultimaker/Marlin

(click the commits towards the top left).

The issue is that many commits are merges from other branches which could have 10s-100s of commits.

I don't think there are many major improvements or fixes that are "must haves".

Development has started up on the original marlin branch and lots of things are being fixed and added. You might wait until Daid merges those (if he does).

I've personally contributed two features:

Ability to set the printer in volumetric mode along with the filament diameter.

A encoder multiplier that increases the amount of the encoder wheel depending on the speed for certain values. For example, getting the fan from 255-0 takes one or two "snaps" of the wheel now...

If you want to see what's going on there, go to:

https://github.com/MarlinFirmware/Marlin

and view the commits...

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
