MK3 only.

prusa3d_fw_3_1_1.zip

Changes in 3.1.1:
See full release log on GitHub!

  • Filament sensor is more reliable – higher FPS set and when runout is triggered one additional check is done
  • Fail stats is split into last print and total menus. Crash detection is also split into X and Y axis
  • Fan error will not prevent from continuing the print when using OctoPrint

  • Test for swapped fans is more robust
  • Firmware version messages shown on printer startup
  • Bed temperature runaway implemented

  • Random resets during Wizard caused by long user response time fixed, self test and PID calibration
  • Automatic Filament load during filament change
  • Incomplete file check implemented
  • Second serial line support implemented to allow Pi Zero W communication
  • Fail stats fixed (now resetable from Factory reset)
  • Fan test fixed (now possible to catch swaped fans)
  • Ambient temperature sensor conversion table fixed, and it’s used now to mask out MINTEMP error when printer is in low temperature environment

  • Normal mode is now force set before XYZ calibration and self test
  • Crash detection menu setting during print fixed (sometimes turning it OFF/ON wasn’t working)
  • Filament sensor menu item now shows another state [N/A] which means the sensor is not attached, or not available because of possible wrong connection
  • File sorting in “Print from SD” implemented for up to 100 files per directory
  • Wizard tiggering during first run of printer fixed
  • Menu items properly masked during first layer calibration
  • Debuging output to serial line removed to prevent corrupting octoprint compatibility
