Updating firmware

Periodically, a new version of the Ultimaker 3 firmware is released. To ensure that your Ultimaker 3 is equipped with the latest features it is recommended to update the firmware regularly. This can be done on the Ultimaker 3 (when connected to the network) or via USB.

Updating on the printer

To update the firmware via the network, take the following steps:

  1. Connect the printer to the network via WiFi or Ethernet.
  2. Go to System > Maintenance > Update firmware.
  3. Choose the “Stable” version.

The Ultimaker 3 will now get the latest firmware from the network and install it. This will take several minutes.

Updating via USB

Firmware can also be updated without an active network connection by taking the following the steps:

  1. Download the Firmware file 1 and 2 from the list below.
  2. Put the firmware files on the USB stick.

    Note: Do not extract the files after downloading, but place them on the USB stick directly.

  3. Place the USB stick in the Ultimaker 3.
  4. Go to System > Maintenance > Update firmware.
  5. The Ultimaker 3 will detect it if there is a firmware file on the USB stick. Select the file to start the firmware update.
