RE: Super PINDA and other changes coming to the Mini+

I just contacted support. They're not willing to give people the new Minda for free if the only issue you're having with it is having to adjust the live Z before every print.

I think you mean PINDA probe.  That is unfortunate, but expected.

Most people will probably have to bite into the sour apple. The user will probably have to pay for the spare part himself, unless it is a warranty case.

Only 3 wires as it doesn’t have the thermistor signal wire. I’d be surprised if it is totally compatible with the existing MINDA without new firmware to support it.

4.3 is the firmware for the Mini+.

Only when it’s released version. I’d get it via GitHub quicker 😉

That's what I understood, but on the live stream tonight they said it would work with the current firmware.

Maybe if you want the test version.  I will wait for the final version.

@chillypenguin

Yes that was my bad I thought it was 4 because of the flat connector.

@gordon-w

Did they say something about firmware? I must have missed it.

RE: Super PINDA and other changes coming to the Mini+

As I understood it the new firmware for the Mini would be released in a week or so...

The new SuperPinda probe works like the original 3 pin MK2 probe (this is the one on the Mini) but with minimal temperature drift. This was made possible with better quality components in the probe and to a higher price tag - this is also partly why the Mini will be prices higher from now.
This also means that the SuperPinda is a direct replacement for the current M.I.N.D.A probe.

Have a look at my designs on Thingiverse or on PrusaPrinters ;)...

That is how I understand it. It is a direct replacement for a MINDA or PINDA.

RE: Super PINDA and other changes coming to the Mini+

@cwbullet I know this is a Mini forum, but on the MK2.5S/MK3S a firmware update is needed for the SuperPinda to work correctly (version 3.9.2). No changes needed to use MMU2S.

I do not think so considering they are already arriving with this new PINDA

I would think that it will work like the Minda(no temp) on the current firmware. The 4.3 software will allow the Pinda to provide temp data to the mini. That way they can ship a mini with a Super Pinda and it will still print with 4.2.

Who knows until someone tests it?  Anything else is conjecture.

The SuperPinda has no temperature meassurement, it is internally compensated. It looks like MINDA but works better 😉
The Mini 4.3 firmware has other improvements like sheets (as on MK3).

On PrusaLive they talked about MK3S+ has new firmware and that there will be a common firmware base for MK2.5 all the way up to MK3S+.
