Latest Firmware Version

Posted · Latest Firmware Version

I need to make ridiculously sure that I am using the latest UM2 firmware.

My machine currently reports that it is on version:

_14.10-RC5 Oct 30 2014 16:19:56

Please let me know if this is not the latest version.

    Is there something special I need to do to have Cura place this newer version on my printer? Currently I have done the following:

    1. Start Cura,

    2. Click Machine Menu -> Install Default Firmware.

    This has left me with the above version installed.

    I'm using Cura 14.10... Which is still newer than the official version shown on the main download page. Do the firmware versions follow the cura versions? So to get the newer firmware I would need to download the newer cura and then do the install default firmware?

    Thanks for the clarification.

    If you have built your own firmware from the source, you can install the hex file of that, by using the 'Install Custom Firmware' option in any Cura.

    Otherwise, the firmware that comes with Cura gets installed when you do 'Install Default Firmware'. In order to get a later firmware pre-built, you need to download the correspondingly newer version of Cura.

    Currently, the official release of Cura is 14.09, although there are newer beta versions available at:


    Those include some newer beta firmwares as well.

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
