Ultimaker 2 pausing halfway a print?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2 pausing halfway a print?


Recently we're having a problem printing a large part.

The print is started at the end of the day. When I come back the next morning it is just paused.

It's an 8 hour print. The first time it stopped after about 2 hours, the last time it was about 3 hours.

Does anyone have any clues what I could check, or what could be the problem?

Small parts work just like fine.

    Hi, and welcome to the forums :)

    Is it literally in pause-mode or did it just stop printing?

    Like; can you resume your print when you arrive at your Ultimaker?

    Have you checked the PauseAtZ plugin in Cura if that is not accidentally activated?

    What kind of 3D printer / Ultimaker do you have?

    Is it the same file or different files?

    If you use an Ultimaker Original, do you still print through USB?

    Lots of questions, but they should help isolating your issue.
