hey folks,

I printed something today (wow!) but... after around 30 seconds or so I recognized a funny scent like burned popcorn, I looked at my ultimaker and saw that the pla started to bubble and smoke came out of the hotend (it still printed, or at least tried to). the temperature was 213°C according to ulticontroller.

I decided to turn the UMO off (I'm so clever xD) and then on again - and now it readed MAXTEMP (something over 300°C - can't remember).

Any Idea what happened? It was really luck that I didn't leaved the house...

At the moment everything seems ok (except of the clogged nozzle, the burnt pla on the nozzle, ....)

    Heater sensor to the little board over the umo cables could have unplug just enough to give a false temperature and the heat was actually way to much and the heat sensor burned? I think I readed something like this on this forum months ago about that being the reason to move to a single cable pt100 on um2/umo+

    Luckyly you saw that being in front of the printer woa, that sounds a bit dangerous.

    If that parts, the thermistor transmiter or the thermistor sensor did broke just drop me a msg. I have one of each that I'll never use since I got it from the dual kit and on umo+ they are useless.

      • 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
