  1. Oh dear! I think think the windows updates have broken it! I've tried 3.1, 3.04 and 2.7 - and they all crash in the same way at the same time! Run as Admin doesn't seem to help. No more printing for Simon!
  2. Same here - just upgraded from 3.04 to 3.1 Load a few STLs and the PC crashes - blue screen of death on fully updated Win10 Ultimate. Hoping 3.04 will still work!
  3. I'm having a similar issue with my (week old) U3. A long print (20h) aborting 10mins from the end when printing from USB. There is no WiFi here - so I cannot use it instead. Having had this three times and last time discovering the GCode was corrupted, I checked it before I started the print. After the print aborted with Error code 1043543, the GCode now includes this block: G1 X137.238 Y131.708 E336.74435 G1 X137.238 Y145.687 E336.81009 M204 S5000 M205 X30 Y30 G0 F15000 X137.244 Y146.027 M204 S1000 M205 X10 Y10 G1 F1500 X136.402 Y146.179 E336.81412 G1 X135.56 Y146.026 E336.8 @Š À& @ŠA‚;€3LС|0†² 0{MØ0‡òñÑ7ŠÌgƒ0MEí‘A=á…{Ú°@Øè5MÀÌÑ«¤(o\-5P¦aTMFÁ»¸A`*€`8õÒš§6;±M^\r )Kp†idêÅáIâ.RIâ€PB¿q•·n‘·â4*<ÁH ȹWC{'z%ò ò8Ñu«qé/VâÔD°­Î´)¥^a-À<|˜À¨¦Aðb¯QãÃØÓÅdˆÐQz³ºz«ÖAË*„À‚†Gà辈tµ1¥œ)ã¼À`š<[pŸ±|¸®ñDpNpC¹0—¡˜”ó-K€ñ´EÍ;üÈ‘&š‡r|BD{ÜäÐæ{üÈ-q BËG•’q˜åèÔ@þZ°îs¥êdË=aüʱoØ^DÀÉäjìªY³QÒgCšÍ%íÐRóZÞž(AÚ?>$ZdTàɽ¥`"!01Ô¶‰Í®wðnΫBß\¹!€Øƒ?ˆ BŠ Þ& BŠ„;¼3L.¼|0Œ² ²Oبðòñod¡Ì– ‹0âtîEMÈácFÙ(¨i1@Ú»E>w¾ÑÉÝöU€äPÓþvÚN‰TÁaîør k`º÷•s‹>±ëƒÉ%À@pϺÎç-B‹¡'ò€›÷€R0²í§Ÿ‘ÕÔpm)ƒxœúB‹­µ+?p¡Ç ¢ë…4I…Ýq‡Îس캀°ï´úeÂca…`é}ŒÀªËJ ¸åÈQïaKsAн»ÂÄUA)Ð|ˆÃàjòryˆ1C4ÁˆÚðïRC!ïÎ'æ1º ã v‹Û·Màëß儨!ã,.X½ßø^%]L •‘íTrñ¥¼§þH0Ь Å ïõá2 Í»q®v@ûââÜXÁѸLI~ìYPÔ~K7”³Ápnlƒå`›xZ &²×±MûÕèýp „j¤µ-¡v¼­2¥1€ó~Ïn¶¤‘DpC¡q/«”óí7KD¬EËçÚ[ jÙ§q6h<×À•å°0Š ƒ.°aÚ—{ÞÔÜÀËåa—ãQðv¼ž!ãÚÐø žèÅA8‰¤¶wàK ¤Xã¦1ršœžD^ð°-9µŸ"!^¾£IOh4 DŠ ü& DŠÅ…;ø3LŒÖ|0N‘² 4’PØ Zóñ ‘¸Ì Ú’0ÑÐïùXSáA}7=v¶²@ÜV@w/.°ÑçÅ<¤“P•WŒ`‡ÅbÁ¿!9øƒêU`<úXL{ßA±‰©6Ùu5pï3kq¾R¡¸¶ €T¥iºeÏ‘óƬ°@ÌE¨ë½ö¡ÜÚVf $åÒ—•q%m[…;¡¼°1e[A¢ßhaéíZ„³€À¬ðS"niâQë ˜ÐՇƼ ÞÔA‡õ¡ßvŠ?àìb}[~[1áËX>ý߶pÒÄS:Ä¡T|„X8ÿC€õHÃСp€‘bFq»pâIÆ£ŒýŠÅ¢ÜŽÍ¡D6 …í^Œâ¼qÔêÙ@-p°rÂn0¡‘"a¸d}†äJuÀÍæXBÈ\Q†5£u ÈÐÖÚ"áòìöA–Ò ½šàÍV¢P¤æ1ƒ™nÚDðòJ®/‹â‹!®ÍhÁ,£‚Óò.`Ÿ5–h‘×c±V$Í€$×op!=z¿Z¡2ðL>YV€÷‚ÒÔ*\‘€ŸÕo•èˆ«RÞ?

Did you reach any conclusions about NLR's query? Is the solution just to use WiFi or avoid long prints? Would it help if I set the file to read only? Does the U3 pay attention to the RO Flag? Is this more likely a hardware issue? Any ideas? I'm getting bored of failed / aborted prints! Apart from that, the U3 is fantastic.
  4. valcrow - Thanks. That's good information. Unfortunately I've now removed the kit and my printer is printing (as we speak) nicely again. Overnight it has completed the next 40mm without a problem - except, I had switched off retraction as it caused the 2+ kit to jam. It's a bit 'stringy' now - but they will clean up OK. PRB4 - I'd noticed that as well. I had just assumed it was inaccurate, not that it would actually take longer. The previous iteration of this part (very minor changes) took 13h to print in V14. It's now saying 24h at the same speed etc. It's already had 13h - so we'll see how long. It's not a problem though if it does a decent job.
  5. Well another day of failed prints. I did observe though that it prints OK (with the temperature set higher than normal) until the fans kick ramp up to 100% - then the underextrusion starts. If you turn the fans down, it extrudes properly again. Alex suggested it might be the temperature sensor faulty - which is certainly possible. Unfortunately, I needed my printer working - so I just returned it to how it was before and it's printing nicely with the same firmware & version of Cura. I've wasted 6 days chasing this - and just don't have the time to continue. I'm sure for some of you it's a great improvement - but even when it was printing OK, I'm struggling to see any difference. I have an iRoberti feeder and an Olsson Block from 3DSolex - and it's pretty good. I had hoped the new feeder would increase the range of what I can print in - but I guess I'll not find out now. I've asked to return it for a refund. 3DGBIRE, from whom it was purchased have refused saying they cannot refund as I have fitted it myself. Sure, sometimes things are faulty - no manufacturing process is perfect - but I wasn't expecting to get in to a bust up with Ultimaker UK over it. Still, you live & learn. Si
  6. I downloaded Cura 14.04.06, updated the firmware and used it to re-generate the G Code. This is a file I've printed previously on my U2 without issue. I appreciate that the hot end is different. I started with the default settings in Cura and on the machine for PLA - but found it mis-fed in the first few layers. The hotter, & slower I printed, the further it got - but now the print temperature (assuming it's accurate) is really too high - and it still fails after a max of 10-12mm. SandervG - is this a part I could machine? I run a small engineering company and despite my apparent lack of 3D printing ability - I can machine anything pretty much. On the advice of others here, I slackened the screws on the print head a little and oiled the feed tube. Didn't make any difference though. At the High temp, slow speed it runs fine until it gets to a part where it would normally retract. Retraction is turned off as it immediately caused a jam previously - but it still seems to fail at the same point.[/media] Regards, Si
  7. How have you guys got on with the upgrade? Mine arrived 4 days ago - and I've yet to get a successful print out of it! Continual under-extrusion. I'm printing a file which printed fine before on my U2 with an Olsson block & iRoberti Feeder and regular Ultimaker Black PLA. I've gradually reduced the speed and increased the temperature and flow - and it is now just about printing OK - but it's at 10mm/s, 245C & 150% Flow. I'm not so much looking for a solution, just whether I'm alone in this? Is it me - or the upgrade? Si
  8. I've agreed to buy FingerPuk's Ultimaker 2 - so need to sell my trusty UM1. The thing that attracts me to the Um2 is the higher print resolution. Many of the things I'm trying to print are very small (< 1cm^3) and need that extra definition. In May 2013, I entered a competition on GrabCad to win one of a number of Ultimaker Printers - and as it turned out, I did win one. This was my entry: https://grabcad.com/library/kreepy-krawly-2-1 A couple of months later I receivied my Printer - and it's been fantastic! I've owned two previous printers, a RepRap Mendel and a BFB 3000 - but the Ultimaker produced results that were at least 4x better than either, and much faster! I've used it a lot over the 10 months I've owned it, mostly making cool stuff. It was one of the last UM 1's produced before the UM 2 was released and was factory assembled including the Mk 2 Hot end and Ulti-controller. I've added a flexible coupling on the Z-Drive which improves striping on tall prints, a better fan duct and an improved spool-holder which will take any filament spool design I've found so far. I'll warranty that it's in good condition and perfect working order and I'll supply it with some filament (whatever is left on the current reel) and all the blue tape I have (several rolls). Enough to get you started same day. I'd prefer not to mail it as I did not keep the original packaging - but I will deliver it personally for free within 100 miles of Horsham, West Sussex. I have no idea what it's worth - but they seem to change hands on eBay for around £850 plus delivery. However, I hate selling on eBay - it seems to attract idiots! Make me an offer in this ball-park and it's yours! Here are a few of the (cooler) things I've printed recently: Replacement mechanism for under one of the keys on my Laptop. Prototype light housing (for 50mm MR16, 12v lamps) iPhone holder for my Land Rover Complete working planetary differential gearbox. The bolts are M6 for scale. I'll try & grab some photos of the actual machine - but I figured you know what it looks like and would rather see what the print quality is like! Si
  9. I was thinking about buying an Ultimaker 2, in which case my Ultimaker 1 would become available. I have no idea what it's worth - PM me if you want to make an offer? I'm located in Sussex and could probably deliver within a reasonable distance too. Si
