Make permanent firmware changes for Makerbot Replicator 2?

Thu Sep 16, 2021 4:28 am

Hi! I got the Simplify3d software up and running with nice results, when connected via USB. I have a Bondtech extruder so I have to change the A-axis e-steps and that works when using USB. But when I print via SD-card the printer uses the old settings in the firmware. Is there a way to make firmware changes permanent? I can't find a firmware upload function in Simplify3D - is there an other way doing it?

Best Regards / Jimmy Alenius

Did you go to tools/firmware configuration? If you select profile makerbot/sailfish from the dropdown and go to the x3g tab you should be able to make the changes you need there.

Hi! Yes, I make the changes in the x3g tab but I can't write it to the printer. I want to overwrite the machine's settings so that it works independently without a computer connected.
