Atomic method on UM2+ error

Recommended Posts

Following these directions: https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/18781-atomic-method

When trying to heat the printer up to 260 it gives an error saying something about the temp sensor and i have to shut it off and back on again. I ended up doing it at 230 and it worked kind of but just wondering if this is just my machine doing this or if the temp is too high.

Is the temp overshooting when you set it to 260? At what temp does it alarm?

Just check if any of the connections are loose and the temp sensor is fully inserted and not loose.

I only heat mine up to 230 or so when I do atomic pulls and it works just fine.

Have you updated your firmware? On the first batch(es) of printers that went out the firmware used an incorrect PID profile for the new temperature sensor which might be what is causing the problem for you.

edit: Oh, and do a factory reset after the firmware update just to make sure the new settings take effect.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
