I am a new Ultimaker user. I have used this machine to successfully print tiny robots a few times, but I've tried to print items that take longer and the machine will randomly shut off part way through a print, then turn back on after 4-5 seconds. Once back on it is at the start screen shows and the current print is lost. Any one have this issue? Any ideas?

    Hi,

    Were you able to witness such a restart? What does the printer do? Do the lights go out and then it starts again? Does the startup-animation play on the screen? If yes, I'd suspect a loose cable somewhere.

    It's almost certainly the power supply.

    Is the cable loose? This is very common. It should snap on, play with the power cable by itself, notice how the outer portion slides. Now insert it and make sure it clicks in place. Give it a few pounds of pull to make sure it stays in there. If you have trouble getting it properly on, trying loosening the 4 screws of the PCB and then plug in power and then tighten them.

    How many watts is it? You might have gotten a um2go power supply by accident. UM2extended+ should be 221 Watts.

    Even if it's the right one, I would ask the supplier for another one. While waiting you could try printing with the bed cold and with blue tape on the glass (washed with alcohol to get it off).

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
