Display current layer being printed on UM2?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I know that on Ultimaker 1 ('original') is was possible to show the current layer being printed on the UM controller.

Is it somehow possible to show this information during printing on Ultimaker 2?

If not, is Ultimaker considering this as a new feature?

Someone made a 'nerd' fork of Ultimaker2Marlin which includes many more information about the printing process similar to the status on the Ulticontroller display. Unfortunately it hasn't yet made it into the default firmware. I would support the possibility to switch the view.

      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.
