  1. I think you nailed it! That fan has a broken wire. Thanks for your help.
  2. I have a UM3. It all started with a big print fail, The Material backed upped into the head and in the process of trying to clean it up, I damaged the head. Fortunately, I had a spare AA 0.4 head. I installed the new head, loaded PLA and, as expected, it wanted to calibrate XY. When it printed the test pattern the Y outline looked OK but then it started printing dots. Kind of like the head wasn't getting fed enough material. I have unloaded / loaded material and tried to calibrate numerous times and it does the exact same thing. I tried cleaning the head and the feeder and still get t
  3. I am having trouble connecting my UM3 to my WiFi. I go to Systems>Network>Run WiFi Setup and it creates a WiFi Network. I connect to the created network on my phone or computer and click "Start WiFi Setup". I name the printer "UM3-5" , then select the my local WiFi network and enter the WiFi password. The UM3 reports "Connected". WiFi is selected on the Network Menu. Now I go to Cura and try to Add the Printer. Today it can't seem to find the UM3 when I click refresh. Other days it works? Even when it's working, it seems that when I leave it off for a few days I must go through
  4. I ask because this is the first Ultimaker material that I have bought that didn't include a resealable bag in the box. Thanks for your assistance.
  5. I'm interested. Do you have the boxes that it came in or how would you pack it for shipping to Texas? How do I contact you?
  6. Are the print heads used on the S5 identical to what is used on the UM3. I'm upgrading from a UM3 and wondering if the printhead selection I have will work on the S5?
  7. Thank you so much! That was a great help. I went so far as to remove the heated bed and no brown wires there. Also looked at the PCB. I didn't take the board out to look at the back side but I don't see any toasted components, PCB, or brown wires there either. I wiggled all the connections and cleaned every thing (it needed it.) After re-leveling the build plate, I tried printing again and it worked this time. (Yea!) I don't know what's going on but I guess I'll just keep an eye on it unless you have another idea I should check. Again, thanks so much for your help!
  8. Wow and oh c__p! Thanks for letting me know. I’ll look into it. You don’t happen to know where I might find some instructions or diagrams as to how to take the printer apart? Thanks again!
  9. I have a UM3 and I'm trying to print with CPE+. Cura defaults the Build Plate Temperature to 107, but with the bed heater set to max (255) the plate never quite reaches 107. Looks like around 104. So the printing never starts? Any idea what's going on? It did work 2 days ago.
  10. The "Custom Printjob Naming" plugin does do the trick. I can't select an object, I open the "Custom Printjob Naming" plugin dialog box, click "Cancel", and then I can select objects. Maybe that info will help the developers?
  11. That's interesting... you're "open a plugin dialog box" work around does not work for me. The only plugin I have is Auto Orientate. Maybe you have a plugin that does something different?
  12. Giving Cura "Full Disk Access" did not solve the problem for me. I find it interesting that it seems to have worked for at least 2 people.
  13. I have done 5 prints since I followed Smithy's recommendation and raised the bed slightly. It appears to have solved the problem. Thanks Smithy!
