Missing one exact layer

Posted · Missing one exact layer

So I haven't had my Ultimaker 2 for that long, loving it so far. But it has started very consistently missing out just one layer, about 1cm into any print. Sometimes it just causes an ugly line, and the pieces loose a lot of strength as they are not as stuck together as they ought to be. It is much worse when it needs to print support structure, this is so flimsy that the nozzle movement can cause it to snap half way through the whole print, causes a plastic chaos.

Anybody know why this is happening? My first thought was an extruder problem, but I find it odd that it only happens for 1 layer, always at the same height (about 1cm). I have tried releveling the bed, but that hasn't changed anything. So I am all out of ideas! Please help

    I would try cleaning and re lubing the z axis. Maybe double check in the layer view in cura and check the file. Also making sure the firmware matches the cura version you are using.

        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.
