    Yes, I followed it.

    PT100 is inserted fully into the Olsson Block.

    It seem work fine because printed well one piece.

    thanks for answer

    Ok, another idea. Did you change your fan shroud? If you get the temp error only sometimes, it could mean that too much air hits the nozzle and the heater can't heat up fast enough triggering the temp error.

    I am using this fan shroud and it works really well (printed in colorFabb XT).

    I had a lot of problems with this error. I print with ABS and I think that the combination of the increased temperature requirement, together with fan cooling, caused the problem.

    Lately, I have disabled the fan altogether when printing ABS - I have had no problems with the heater error since then.

    I also re-downloaded firmware to the UM2, but I can't say if this helped or not.

    As a backup, I have bought a 35W heater - I think the heater error you are seeing is related to a weak 25W heater element, that comes with the UM2 as standard - as a last resort this might be worth trying, but slowing down the fan or switching it off altogether (for ABS anyway) is a good thing to try.

    best of luck!

    I had this error after installing the Olsson Block.

    The Olsson block was touching my fan shroud, causing it to cool rapidly.

    We simply screwed the metal coupler slightly tighter into the Olsson Block so that the Olsson block was not touching the fan shroud and this solved the error.

    The last 2 answers are excellent but I want to add what "heater error" means:

    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):



    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)

    As of March 2016 I'm pretty sure these values haven't changed and are still at the values they were for version 15.01.

      • 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.
