Hey,

So i'm at a faire for the weekend . I have been printing for a few hours .

Every few prints the controller stops the machine just before it prints the object and displays "sleep" on the ulticontroller display.

It's becoming a pain, so I was wondering what causes it?

Cheers

Kym

    "Sleep" is most likely the result of a MINTEMP or MAXTEMP error, this error does not display correctly on the display yet, and thus is shown as a Sleep (or dwell in older versions)

    Check your temperature sensor connections, this is usually the problem, they need to be very tight.

    Yep, that in one of the few screws I have never tightened up.

    Thanks, I have a whole other day of printing bottle openers and i'm key chain hangers.

    Cheers
