Problems with ultimaker2 hardware/software ?

Recommended Posts

I am having new problems with my Ultimaker2. I am trying to feed new filament in.

I go to the menu, go to "maintenance"—"Advance"—"insert material" and then it crashes and immediately restarts.

I have tried other fiction that relates to material, and overtime it crashes and immediately restarts.

However moving the plate around is no problem, it works fine...?

Also the on/off button in the back doesn't seem to work as well, if I turn it off, all it does is dim the led lights. It has to be unplugged...

So far I re-installed CURA and re-installed to firmware. The install went fine, but the same problem persist after that.

Any ideas?

One more detail: This particular printer hasn't been used for a few month, but it was properly stored, in it's original box in a storage room, and worked fine before that.

Please let me know what the next step is.

cheers.

I found the problem.

There seem to be a short with the servo that drives the filament. I unplugged it and replugged it after taking the board out, and it seems be working again. The board probably has a fail safe, that forces everything to shut down and reboot when it feels there is a short… Which why it only shut down with commands that controlled that particular servo.

cheers.

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
