crashing the x axis

My machine "Ultimaker 2" doesn't seem to know where the head is if I abort or even change material.

Once I abort or pause and restart, the machine proceeds to over shoot in the x axis.

    Did you push/move the head while it was paused?

    If you abort, then it has to re-home again before it knows where it is.

    Is the print head smashing loudly into the left wall? If so there's something wrong with the limit switch - it's probably not quite making contact. With power off try to push it so that you can hear the click of the limit switch when the head is all the way over to the left. You might have to bend the metal tab on the switch a little or maybe the fan shroud is bent and the fans are hitting the wall before the limit switch is hit.

      • 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
