Machine updates?


#1

Hi all,

Just a quick question regarding the machine firmware updates?

How do you manually update to the latest firmware, or is this automatically done via freeform?

Cheers

You can do it with PreForm. If you look at the printer in the Printers list:

Then that little icon with the circular arrow around a little printer in the upper right will check for firmware updates for you. If it finds one, it’ll download it and install it on the printer.

Brilliant thank you

@mgarrity Right now, this is quite hard to find if you don’t know where to look. Any plans on making that a bit more obvious? IMHO adding text to the buttons would help very much. It won’t even be an extra translation burden, since the tooltip already has the text.
