The firmware of the Ultimaker Original+ can be updated via Ultimaker Cura. Periodically, a new version of Ultimaker Cura is released. Find the latest version on our Software page.
In order to install the latest firmware to your Ultimaker Original+, follow the steps described below.
Connect to a computer
Use the supplied USB cable to connect your Ultimaker Original+ to a computer or laptop that has Ultimaker Cura installed. This will allow Cura to communicate with the printer.
Tip: Ensure that the correct machine (Ultimaker Original+) is selected in the Printers panel.
In the Printers panel, select Manage printers. From this menu, you can update the firmware. This menu offers two options:
|Automatically upgrade firmware||Selecting this option will install the latest version of the default Ultimaker firmware for the Ultimaker Original+.|
|Upload custom firmware||It is possible to install custom firmware for your Ultimaker Original+ that you compiled yourself or found online. Installing custom firmware is always at your own risk.|
Wait for the firmware installation to complete. Do not disconnect the USB cable or power off the printer during the installation process.
Note: The firmware for the Ultimaker Original+ has not changed for a long time. While we still recommend always using the latest version of Ultimaker Cura for the best print results, new Cura versions no longer contain any updates to the firmware for the Ultimaker Original+.
