Cura calibration do not work

Posted · Cura calibration do not work

I build me Ultimaker und want to first start it

I start Cura and do the firmware update. (I hope it was not a mistake) After the Firmware update the checkup wizard start. But after some seconds i get a message to move the extrude to the middle, but the extruder is in the middle.

here the log:

Object 0x7fd3bb5e0210 of class NSConcreteMapTable autoreleased with no pool in place - just leaking - break on objc_autoreleaseNoPool() to debug

    The firmware update is good (the supplied firmware is quite new but very stable)

    On Mac the wizard fails for some reason, not sure why yet. I've had more reports. Just skip the wizard for now.

    Ok, Thank you.

    I have switched to Windows and i installed Cura to see weather the check runs there.

    But i still have a Problem. I failed again. After temperature check i should press X End in front left corner. I moved the extruder bye hand to left but nothing happens.

    x and y calibration works now. But the z calibration will not work. I can touch the end stopper per Hand but there is no reaction. I have have checked the cabeling but i found no mistake..

    Check the switch with a multi-meter, also I took about 5 attempts to get CURA to "see" the switches going. For me it certainly was not a case of quickly clicking each switch and being done in 15 seconds, sometimes when it asked for the X LH endstop I would have to sit there clicking it for half a minuite before CURA reacted.

    ok i will try it. I think it have to be a SW problem, because moving the z-plattform stops after reaching the end stop. (Automoving to 0,0,0 works fine)

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
