I just turned on my UMO+ for the first time and hit the auto home function. I was told that the z axis should go up to the limit switch, instead it went down, way down...and made a long loud ugly noise...what happened?

    Home will cause the z stage to move up. Sounds like stepper wires may be the wrong way around? does the print head move to the front left corner ok? if it doesn't, it may be that the steppers are plugged into the wrong stages on the control board (i.e x is plugged into z or similar).

    Also, when in the set up wizard, at the point where I am supposed to level the bed, it does not matter which key I press, up or down, it only moves down.

    Problem solved, calibrated with Pronterface, working smoothly now.

      • 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.
