Ulticontroller hanging / no display

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ulticontroller hanging / no display

Firstly I'd like to thank the Ultimaker team for the Ulticontroller which is a great improvement of the whole process and of controlling the print.

Sometimes when I insert the SD card (which was delivered with the controller) the Ulticontroller seems to hang, nothing is displayed. Only by switching the Ultimaker off and on again the display will show up again. Maybe it is required to insert the SD card when the printer is switched off.

What is happening is that the UltiController LCD display gets glitched by the SD insertion. The controller still works (you can hear it beep) but nothing is displayed anymore. Or garbage is displayed.

A newer version of the firmware fixes this. You can build newer firmware with:

Many thanks for your answer.

Question regarding the Marlin bulider. I don't exactly understand the difference between the Ulticontroller and the Ultipanel. I have the Ulticontroller from Ultimaker. Which setting do I need?

Thanks in advance.

You need the ulticontroller setting then. But both will work, the UltiPanel is the "beta" version, the only difference is that the knob is wired differently and thus will rotate the wrong way around if you select the wrong one.
