Firmware and bed leveling

To print the first print with the new parts in your Ultimaker, you need to update your firmware.

  • Connect the Ultimaker to your computer with the USB cable.
  • Connect the power supply and turn on the Ultimaker.
  • Start Cura and select the Ultimaker 2+ or Ultimaker 2 Extended+ in the “Machine” menu (depending on which Ultimaker you have).
  • Go to “Extensions” > "Firmware" > "Update firmware". Cura will now automatically upload the correct firmware to your Ultimaker.
  • The new nozzle in your Ultimaker is at a different height than the stock nozzle. It is now necessary to re-level the buildplate before continuing printing.
