Fan shroud (Labern) Heater Error on first layer (no fan)


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Fan shroud (Labern) Heater Error on first layer (no fan)

I printed the labern fan shroud for olsson block https://www.youmagine.com/designs/um2-dual-fan-shroud (also got I2K)  and taped it with kapton.

Mounted it (2 spacers used on right side of heat block):

On the first layer I got a heater error (with fans off):

I printed colorfabb XT white at 235C.

Anyone can tell me where I did go wrong?

Thanks!

    Which firmware version do you have (you can check using the menu system on the printer).

    heater error (as opposed to error stopped - temp sensor)

    You get an error if the heater can't move a certain amount in a certain time while driving full power (when it is close to goal temp it typically runs well below full power):

    Firmware

    Version

    14.09 - does not have the feature

    14.12 oct 16, 2014 - feature introduced. 20C in 20 Seconds

    14.12.1 dec 15, 2014 - from 20C to 10C (still in 20 seconds)

    15.01 jan 14, 2015 - from 20 secs to 30 secs (now 10C in 30 seconds)

    Sorry to hear your experiencing problems.

    So you are getting the errors even when the fans are not working? Strange.

    Did you put the spacers as per grey ones in this photo? 20151002_141809.thumb.jpg.e37575d00b9c3a05f567bf6bc5523a90.jpg

    Are you using the original nozzle?

    Hi Labern,

    yes it happend on the first layer, fans were at 0%. I use a M4 screw nut as a spacer. The screws come out at about 1mm on the other side. I use the Olsson block with a 0.4 nozzle.

    You might want to either disable the "heater error" check or alternatively get a 35W heater. The 25W heater that comes with the UM has quite a bit of variation from printer to printer and may actually be as low as 20W.

    I go with gr5, when I did the conversion I went with the upgraded heater and have had no problems with Labern shroud but I do introduce the fans gradually I do this as to not shock the Olson block and cause a sudden drop in temp.. I also made 4 spacer about 3mm thick under all 4 thumb screws. I also got a new Bowden tube as I'd cut the old one to use as spacer in iRoberts feeder design.

    I ordered a 35W heater, when the printer is back from iGo3D (z-axis problem you know :-) then I will change the heater.

      • 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.
