Latest Firmware Version

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
