Dremel 3D40 not working after firmware update

Mon Jan 23, 2017 1:51 pm

My Dremel3D40 has received a firmware update yesterday.
Afer that Update, Simplify 3D Profil doesn't work.

The Extruder doens't head up...all Code in Script doesn't work anymore.

Is there anybody with the same Problem?

P.S. Simplify with Dremel3d40 over USB has never worked

hmm.. well did you try asking the Dremel support people about it? Maybe they have release notes for the firmware or can tell you what changed.

I have been waiting for a callback from Dremel for two days. The nice gentlemen on the phone did not know anything.

I too have this problem. ive been chatting back and forth with Dremel for 5 days now VIA emails. they are sending me a flash drive with the old firmware files that came with the printer. i will try and keep you up todate on this.

Hey guys i got the "older" files for my Dremel to work. you need to contact dremel and ask them to send you older files for the update.

Can you post the old files here? That will make it much easier for anyone else in the future that has to do this

All you need to do to get the files to work from the flash drive is wrap the heating commands in a pair of these fancy comments

Start of your files should end up looking very similar to the files produced by autodesk...

DarthRevan - I used the fff file and exported a g3drem file to a USB stick. When I hit USB on the Dremel console it freezes.
