New day, same problem. (Update to previous post)


Recommended Posts

Posted · New day, same problem. (Update to previous post)

I posted the other day asking for help and some people chimed in. Here is the previous thread I made. I made suggested changes, and started the new print. Here are the new settings as suggested by different people. I also set up a custom material setting on the ultimaker 2 with the following.

Nozzle Temperature: 220c

Bed Temperature: 45c

Flow: 100%

Everything else default

But this morning I come into this . (mfw )

It seems that the entire print surface shifted, somewhere, something went horribly wrong. I made sure that the nozzle was clear, no blockages, I did the atomic pull like 10 times (ok, only 3 times, but still) and I stuck around for the first hour of the print job and there were no obvious issues. What am I doing wrong?

    A shift usually indicates a loose pulley, check all, tighten the screws including the ones on your x/y motor.

    You need to allign the axis again if you had a loose pully, there's a chapter in this upgrade manual on how to do this... but you need two small printed tools so you probably just want to tighten stuff and then print the align tools for use later....

    I will try this. Right now what I am doing is attempting to just print a single one of these items, just to see how that turns out.

    If you home the printhead in the menu using Maintenance --> Advanced --> Home Head, the printhead should move to the back left corner and lock in place. If it goes to the back corner okay, but you can still move it in the X or Y direction after checking that all of your pulleys on the rods are tight, then it would mean that one of the pulleys on your motor is loose. Looking at the photo, I'd suspect the rear most pulley on the right hand side, connected to the short belt, or the motor pulley on that side.

      • 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
