Pulse Firmware

  • recently recieved a pulse professional bundle, tried getting the bed leveling to work for cura and failed miserably, is there a stock firmware option for getting the printer back to factory?


  • Check on Github. The pulse can only be leveled with Mattercontrol. Make sure you make all the settings correctly - you might want to reach out and call tech support on this. You also most likely voided your warranty. They don't like any changes to the firmware nor do they provide any updates as it seems they customize the firmware to the printer you ordered like Mine is/was as Pulse C232 and the C232 gets read by the firmware and affects certain settings.

    Now I use Prusa slicer with all my printers. With the pulse I slice in prusa slicer and export the GCODE and then in MC instead of reading in an STL I read in that prusa slicer gcode file and print from MC which now adds bed level control. - not ideal but a work around to get around the crappy slicer in MC

  • I just finished compiling a branch of Marlin 1.1.9 for the Pulse XE. Im still working on getting my Z-Offset set and after I get some prints I was going to publish the source code on GitHub.

    Its not super hard. The printer itself is just a variation of the i3 design.

    I did this becuase I wanted the Pulse to be a more stand alone printer and not be forced to use MatterControl. I like MatterControl for some of the things it can do, but for slicing, I feel like i can get better prints and have more control from Cura or other slicers.
