Changelog Octoprint Distribution for X40 PRO:

Revision 2.0.0 (Released 2023-01-28)

  • The operating system and Octoprint software have been updated
  • The additional functions that require X40 PRO firmware have been removed, as they are integrated in the current Cura plugin. The distribution can therefore now be used with any firmware for the Weedo X40.

More information see OctoPrint for Weedo X40

Ultimaker Cura 5.X Weedo X40 PRO postscript plugin

The postscript plugin for the Weedo X40 PRO has been revised. The operating concept was revised for Release 2.0.0 in order to avoid incorrect settings.

Ultimaker Cura 5.X configuration for Weedo X40 PRO

A new Cura configuration for the Weedo X40 PRO has been released. This version will also be integrated into Ultimaker Cura 5.3 without the 3000+ print profiles (if Ultimaker includes them).
Due to the changed commands for the parking position, this configuration should be able to be used with all Weedo X40 / X40 PRO firmware versions.
However, the problem in dual mode with heating up over the print object can only be remedied by installing the X40 PRO firmware.

X40 PRO Release 2.0.0  (Startscript Rev. 16)

  • The configuration now works with all Weedo X40 and X40 PRO firmware versions. If the X40 community cooling system is not installed, then the printing profiles may not provide the best possible result. Weedo X40 stock firmware dual mode stop issue is not fixed as it is firmware related and not cura related.
  • Removed overflow parameters (preparation for Cura 5.3)
  • The Cura configuration is suitable for Cura 5.0.0 to 5.2.1 and probably also for 5.3.0
  • The temperature limit has been increased from 260°C to 300°C (Support for High Temperature Firmware).
  • Add printing profiles for 3DJake PCTG, Printing profiles for AddNorth Adura have been moved to High Temperature printing profiles
  • For the High Temperature X40 PRO firmware variant there are additional print profiles for Polymaker PC, ColorFabb Neat PA and AddNorth Adura (Nylon).
  • The visualization model of the printer has been changed and now has no X-axis and printheads. This makes Cura a little faster and the model no longer interferes with large prints (Ready for the Idex Plugin).

Cura Idex Plugin

Currently, more than EUR 500 in donations have been collected for the realization of the Cura Idex Plugin. However, 600 EUR are required for the implementation. We therefore ask for further donations so that we can commission the software developer shortly.

Changelog X40 PRO Firmware 1.2.5.9 RC 1

The 1.2.5.9 RC 1 version is now available for download to all X40 community members in the cloud. The following variants are available:

  • X40V1 PRO
  • X40V1 PRO HT
  • X40V1 PRO BMG
  • X40V1 PRO BMG HT
  • X40V2 PRO
  • X40V2 PRO HT
  • X40V2 PRO BMG

Due to the high complexity of the new XY-Super Fine Tune function, there is an RC version. Please report bugs via email to:

database(at)x40-community.org


If no errors are reported by the end of March 2023, RC 1 will become a release.

 

  • Linear Advanced disabled and removed from parameter list. Linear Advanced doesn't work with the installed TMC2208 driver.
  • Add PID Settings to parameter list and backup function. Please note that the firmware uses the parameters from the left hotend (T0) for both hotends!


  • Reworked the title of the XY-Offset Tune pages
  • Added XY-Offset Super Fine Tune with an adjustment accuracy of 0.01mm. The valid X setting range is 345.66mm ... 349.55mm and Y range -2.44mm ... +2.55mm. If the offset is larger, the setting on the hardware must be corrected. See Adjust belt tension


  • Z-Offset Tune -> Quit / Recall / Crash bug is fixed
  • Z-Offset Tune accuracy of the setting steps increased from 0.1mm to 0.02mm

 

PREVIEW X40 PRO Firmware 1.2.5.9

 

Cura Idex Plugin

The final specification for the Cura Idex plugin is ready. I am now looking for a programmer who will implement this for us for a fee. I hope the costs are not so high and the money raised by the X40 community is enough.

 

Weedo X40 / X40 PRO Discord group


If you would like to be in contact with other Weedo X40 users, you are cordially invited to join the X40 community group on Discord.

 

Many thanks to everyone who made a relaunch of the X40 community homepage possible. The donations are enough to keep the homepage running for a year if they are not brought back.

However, the further development of the Ultimaker Cura configuration and the X40 PRO firmware requires more than the EUR 100 for operating the server.

 

Anyone who previously had access to the cloud and has not withdrawn the donation or distributed passwords or data is welcome to write to me a email for a new access. The promise remains that everyone only has to donate once to get access for the duration of the project if they follow the rules! However, the check and activation may take a few days. People who take part in the fundraiser are given priority and immediately receive a new account.

It may be that some links on the homepage no longer works. If you have problems, please log into the X40 Community Cloud and download the data directly from there.
