UM2+ print head crashing into right side panel

Posted · UM2+ print head crashing into right side panel

I recently had the unfortunate pleasure of the print head crashing into the right side wall of my printer while printing a part that was located on the far right side of the bed. I successfully replicated this problem today with a test file, and it seems that the standard machine setting of 230mm for the width of the build plate is not correct for my printer. I did not change any machine settings and am running Cura 15.04.4.

As shown in the first picture the part is well within the allowable print space.

Yet when it prints the outline the print head nearly touches the side panel on the second step already, and it would do another 4 steps at 1mm each, resulting in a crash. In the second picture you can also see the scratch from the last crash.

Did anyone else notice this? I now reduced the maximum width in the machine settings to 225mm, this fixes the problem for me at the moment. Nevertheless I find it rather strange that I have to mess with this setting at all.

        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.
