    Ultimaker 2
  1. Perfect! Thank you very much for catching the problem!
  2. Glad to hear its been found. So is the testing version pretty stable then? Just contains the fixed code? Thanks!
  3. Great news! Looking forward to it!
  4. I did just find a fix to get around it. If the UM3 is not seeing the USB drive,If you go to change the material and then place the USB drive in the UM3 and go through the process of changing out material, once you go back to the main menu the UM3 will see the USB drive again.
  5. It happens to me every time I unplug the USB drive. I used the USB drive that came with my UM3, Sandisk 4GB,Sandisk 8GB,a USB memory card reader that had a old 256 MicroSD card,8GB and 16GB memory cards. The dump Files wont write to the USB drives, It throws up some sort of error,If you power cycle the machine where it can see the USB drives it will write the dump files just fine.
  6. David, Im having the same problem as well. I got my printer like 2 weeks after launch and didnt touch the firmware after that so I had what ever came on the printer. Ive tried a few things, it seems like after every print if I remove the USB drive and put it back in the UM3 will not see it. This goes for every drive I have tested so far. (5 to be exact) I have reformatted the drives as well and still have the same issue. Now one thing I did notice is I have a USB memory card ready, I placed a file on the SD card and placed the USB drive in the printer and the printer sees it, Now if I keep the drive plugged in but remove the SD card and go to a print a file the UM3 still shows all the files that were on the SD card even though its not plugged in. I dont believe the old firmware version did this. I dont know if that will help or not but figured I would mention it.

    New firmware for Ultimaker 3, version 3.6

    I came here wanting to say after the firmware update,If I unplug the USB drive to load new files on it and then plug the drive back into the UM3 it will display nothing but "Return" I have to turn off and back on the UM3 again to get it to see the thumb drive again. Ive tried 3 thumb drives so far,All have the same problem.

    Wifi Not Working?

    Well I tried a factory restart as I lost connection on wired as well,The UM3 said it was restarting and the screen just went blank and the lights stayed on,I left it like that for about 1 hour and went ahead and turned the machine off and back on again,Now nothing!!!!! I hear 2 clicks under the machine and nothing,No lights or anything,The only light that is on is the little red light under the machine. Any thoughts? =(

    Wifi Not Working?

    So ive run into a weird issue,When I went to cura to send a print over wifi I noticed it didnt see my UM3. So I checked the status on the connection on the printer and didnt see an IP address or anything. So when I go an try to rerun the wifi set up it just sits at creating a wifi hotspot,And I mean it sat for over an hour doing this,When I cancel it just defaults back to LAN,I have tried running an ethernet cable to the printer and it instantly pulls an IP address so I believe it has something to do with the WIFI Module? However I prefer wireless as I currently am running a 150FT ethernet cable across the house lol I have unplugged the system and router/modem to not success. Any ideas on whats going on? Thanks!
  10. Have you played with the z offset at all?

    Battery Backup

    I use the UPS and they work good. I also have a small generator as well just in case power is out for extended amount of time.

    heater cartridge died after 6 months

    Mine has about 6K hours on it and still running. (Knock on wood) Those items are not covered under warranty so you were good to buy them.
  13. Another thing you can do that others have done is flip the glass plate when the bed is leveling and ounces it's done just flip it over again to the buildtak side

    Changing a print core, mid print.

    Just for giggles I tried it last night,as soon as you pull the print core out,the printer gives you a temp error and you have to reset the machine.

    Small features not adhering on first layer

    You may want to try to print even slower for your first layer. Also different material sticks better than others,so maybe try a direct roll of filament. You can also put some extra glue at the area and that should help as well.
