Error Tried printing out of printing area

Recommended Posts

Hi thanks for replying.

I'd upgrading to Cura 15.06 but have now gone back to 15.04.3. Even using an old gcode file that l know worked this now gives the same error. I've checked the code using the gcode viewer and as far as l can tell everything appears normal, and yes in cura the model is yellow and well within the bed parameters.

Perhaps you tried printing out of the printing area...? :)

Seriously:

- which slicer, which firmware version?

- what differs? is at all the same file/model?

- did you changed something? Perhaps a wrong printer profile in the slicer?

- perhaps a damaged gcode file (have you checked the file with a gcode viewer?)

 

Still having the same problem. Have uninstalled Cura, re-installed Cura 15.04, updated firmware on Ultimaker 2, created a small block in Solidworks, Sliced in Cura 15.04, transferred to printer but part way through printing still gives the error message: "Error: Tried printing out of printing area" and the head moves to the left and then the home position. Tried printing again and at a different point the same error occurs.

Any help please

I suggest uploading a sample gcode file in which you observed this error, since by updating the firmware you have eliminated any custom settings that might have caused this. At this point, given the information you have supplied, the next logical step would seem to eliminate any gcode errors.

I do not own an Ultimaker 2. But you can load on your machine FAILSAFE setting and SAVE it. Then try to move manually on each X,Y,Z axis then AUTO HOME it. Then try recalibrate or bed leveling process. When everything works like it should search problem with your Cura Settings.

good luck

i had the same lately and had the feeling, that its the skirt which is outside the printarea. is it possible, that only the model is checked by cura?

 

Hi avogra, since l've had this problem l've tried all sorts of prints including 25 x 25 x10 blocks with still the same problems. Going to try tinkergnome idea of a new sd card. I've also cleaned all the guide rods and re-oiled in case they were sticking and affecting the stepper motors.

Hi everyone,

I have built an aluminium ultimaker 2 extended during the past few months.

I have followed the instruction of "jasonatepaint" who create this model

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:811271

My settings are:

Slicer cura 15.04.4.

Firmware: thinkergnome v16.08.1

So everything work well so far, but I have randomly the error "tryed to printing out of the area".Sometime there is no error display on the screen but during the print the head do weird deplacements in the air and go back to the print. 5a3322ef43625_20161022_1809301.thumb.jpg.fd633d6d74da09e8621b3e8cc466f04c.jpg. It ruins all the print . I tried to use different sd card but, the problem did not disappear... I have checked the gcode on repetier host and I did'nt see any problems.

It's very frustrating because you don't know if your print ll succed when you start it ...  

If anyone have an idea about this issue ?

Thanks

Jérémy

Maybe you have a firmware with a smaller max z print area

Anybody have an idea about this isssue ?

I printed the same file sliced with the same cura settings on my old prusa I3 and everything was fine.

I tried several SD cards (HC and regular formated in FAT 32) put the problem happen randomly with all of them.

I thought about maybe a problem of overheat of the board. My 30 mm fan is maybe not enought.

I'm kind of lost ^^

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
