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.
