Ulticontroller hanging / no display

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    A newer version of the firmware fixes this.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.

      • 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
