This printer is updating the firmware

Now you will need to setup your ide in order to properly select the output platform.for this you will need to go into your menu « Tools Board » and select « Arduino/Genuino mega or Mega 2560 » And then select the proper Processor « Atmega2560(Mega 2560) » Now connector to your 3D printer USB port and make sure that the arduino is properly detected by your pc. On the top of the IDE, in the green part, you should find many tabs called « Marlin », « Conditionals.h », « Configuration.h » etc…

I have also been bitten by not updating firmware when critical update comes out.

I can handle the balancing act with Servers, Switches, Networking Gear, Storage etc. Newest HP Printer I just installed can actually auto-update the firmware.

PID control is great if you want a stable reliable temperature control.

If you just need a more simple way to drive the heating elements, then use Bangbang mode and disable this « #define PIDTEMP » parameter.

Once opened the ide should look like this It’s really useful for you to increase the size of the window in order to better see the line of codes later on.

To expand the window size click on the increase size on the top right corner of the application.

It makes sense if the printer doesn't support a new OS that it's time to look for Firmware updates, but what about smaller more incremental.

Now I will check when having printer problems, but should we (as IT in general) being monitoring all our Printers for Firmware updates? What if there is a patch to fix a security issue with your printer?

This mean that the hot-end will be very fast to reach a temperature close to the target temperature, but it will slow down at the very end in order to avoid possible temperature overshots. 40W heater cartridge: If you have a hot-end with a 40 watt heater cartridge, you can lower down a little bit the BANG_MAX value.

Here is an example used for the All In One hot-end.

the lines in color are active while the lines in grey are comments. In that case the beginning of the line will be colored and the remaining part past « // » will be greyed. Comments are very useful in order to give a lot of relevant information about the specific meaning of each settings.
