Failing to extrude after switching material mid print


Recommended Posts

Posted · Failing to extrude after switching material mid print

Hello All

I have an Ultimaker 2 Extended +, and pretty much all is well except two things as below. Any help would be much appreciated thanks.

1. In the past I have successfully switched colour (BOTH PLA) during a print having added a pause at height plug in. However the last 5 or so times I attempted this the machine extruded through the new material until I selected that it was coming through, and then when I started the print again it failed to extrude every time! this has wasted a fair bit of material time :/

2. Not such a major issue but still annoying, I have to manually set the extruder to 210 before every print even know the UM knows that I am using PLA and says 210 when I put the filament in, it just seems to be set at room temp for every print.

Thank you in advance for any help.

      • 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
