  1. I did suffer from a similar problem from time to time on my set up, so increased the length to 80cm and it has not occurred since.
  2. Using the above fix by @yyh1002 I found you can leave the other information in place. ?
  3. Have had a look in the files from the Mark2 and think I have found the error and now working fine for me ? hardware_type = nozzle was missing under the 'metadata' section in the config file for each nozzle size.
  4. Changed this on all 4 sizes and now no error message and nozzle size now shows when using Mk2 - Many thanks indeed ?
  5. Configuration error being shown when Mark2 chosen with 'nozzle' showing empty even though 0.4mm shows as highlighted on size selection drop down - No problems at all on Cura 3.31. Any ideas??

    UM2 Feeder Motor runs in reverse

    It fits at the bottom of the 2 shells which make up the extruder casing, to guide the filament into the gearing etc. Picture shows a Bondtech extruder, but you'll get the idea ?
  7. I just took a note of the values I had been using, so as to make it easier by entering them for the various parts, but I did go through the whole set up sequence again - never had that problem occur again, and it all works like a dream ?

    Cannot add new material profiles

    You don't state which machine your using, but had similar problems with my UM2 whilst trying to add PVA - looks like Ultimaker do not allow any 'materials' they think your machine can not run ? Have a look at this thread - I found a way around this problem ? https://community.ultimaker.com/topic/22932-cura-331-unable-to-add-custom-materials/?tab=comments#comment-209581
  9. Seem to remember I had something similar when I first started with the MK2 - a reset of the UM2 solved it for me after installation of the new firmware.

    Cura 3.3.1 - Unable to add custom materials

    You can get around this problem by calling it after your 'Brand' name and enter the details as normal - i.e. I called PVA 'OB-PVA' and it displays OK
  11. I use a UM2+ modified to a Mark2 which I have been using quite successfully with Cura 3.2.1 with custom modified filament profiles including PVA. When using Cura 3.3.1, everything works well apart from my PVA custom filament does not show up in the filament choices - I have tried to import the PVA profile which Cura 3.3.1 states it has loaded successfully, but it is still not available to choose. I assume that a PVA profile is being blocked for use with my UM2+/Mark2, and wonder if anyone knows a work around to get this to work. VMT for any assistance.
  12. If I understand you right; you can do a print using the extra head, by mounting the second head prior to running the generated gcode file using the standard UM2 (single head) settings under marlin.

    Cura vs Simplify3D

    I used to use S3D 100% when I first got my UM2, but find these days that as Cura has matured I'm using S3D only on the very odd occasion now - Cura just seems to 'work' so much easier these days, especially when using the Mark 2 mod.
  14. Just install the files as described and you'll be up and running - 3.2 version running well here

    UM2 Software Update

    I had the same problem for some reason with the newer versions of Cura - I now keep ver. 2.5 just for firmware updates! Might be worth a try?
