Ultimaker 2 build plate not at correct height?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2 build plate not at correct height?

Hi there, I was wondering if anyone can help me? I am having an issue with my Ultimaker 2 3D printer. When I run through the set up instructions for levelling the platform, it tells me to adjust the build plate so that it is 1mm away from the extruder head. The problem is that the build plate is not raising high enough (when it automatically moves upwards) therefore there is about a 6cm gap between the platform and the extruder. I cannot find a solution to this problem and I would really appreciate your help, thanks.

    When it prompts you for the 1mm part - you are supposed to spin the dial. That will move the bed up. I know it's not clear - they just expect you to figure that out I suppose.

    Thank you so much for your reply gr5. I will do that tomorrow. I see what you mean now it's not very clear. Thanks for your help

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
