Wiring different than explained in assembly guide?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Wiring different than explained in assembly guide?

Hello Everyone, I'm new here, new to 3d printing in general. I purchased an Ultimaker Original+ and I am having some issues with the assembly when it comes to the electronics portion.

It appears that the wiring supplied is different from what is described in the assembly guide.

Here are the variances:

6.5.2 Connecting the heater and heated bed: it says to attach the white wires to the heater 1 output. I have NO white wires. I have only gray wires.

6.5.2 Same topic, it says to attach the gray wires to the heated bed output. Now, on top of having only gray wires, two of them are capped together in a dual connector. There are only single connector ports for the heated bed output.

6.5.3 Connecting the Print Head electronics. It says to attach the metal sleeved PT100 plug the TEMP1 slot. My PT100 does not have a metal sleeve or a connector, it is just two bare wires.

Can anyone help with these issues? Thanks in advance...

    I think a recent change in the heated bed cable colors may make my photo look different.

    My heated bed has two grey(fat) and two white(thin). I've noticed some kits coming with headed bed cables that are blue&brown(fat) and Balck&white(thin), just keep the fat and thin wires going where they say and ignore the colors since they do not match.

    I have a anotated assemble manual here:


    see page 61

    and here's a photo that might help of my board.

    another note:

    1. PT100 should have a plastic 2 wire socket on the end, it plugs into TEMP1 plastic jack. it is the smaller of the two things plugged into your nozzle heater block.

    2. Cartridge heater should have the two bare wires, it plugs into HEATER 1 on the terminal block. it is the larger of the two things plugged into your nozzle heater block, AND it has the 90deg bend in the metal end by the nozzel heater block.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
