Ultimaker 2 not heating or homing before print

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2 not heating or homing before print

Hello all,

Recently I started having problems with the Ultimaker 2 we have at my school. Sadly many of the people using the printer don't do their research before jumping in, which makes troubleshooting hard when nobody knows what they could have done to cause the problem.

Whenever I attempt to start a print from Cura, the printer just starts moving without first heating or homing. I've looked at start/end gcode, factory resetting firmware, and reinstalling Cura. The only other solution I can think of is to install fresh firmware, but the progress bar that comes up when I click "upload firmware" doesn't move, and the printer shows no activity.

If anybody has a fresh perspective I'd love to hear it.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
