extruder clogs if cancelled print

Posted · extruder clogs if cancelled print

for some reason if I cancel a print, even if I let it cool down all the way and then start a new print, it almost always fails, i.e. no filament extrudes whatsoever.

Loading and re-loading filament seems to work, but it seems quite ridiculous to have to do so.

printing pla mostly at 210

    I have the same problem every time I abort. You need to pull the filament out of the top of the extruder head unit (remove blue clip and bowden tube) and cut the tip of the plastic that has become deformed. It should work fine after that. also dont forget to warm up your machine a tad when u do this.

    I think the problem it's the way you 'cancel'. If you turn the machine off, the little fan that cools the machine (assuming you talk about um2 since you don't tell what machine you use) then, the pla on the hotend area will heat/expand/block. Just, let it cool down naturally, or do an atomic pull after each print to check that your hotend it's really clean.

      • 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.
