Firmware history?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Firmware history?

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)

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


    (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:


    and view the commits...
