Y axis problem on Ultimaker 2+

Posted · Y axis problem on Ultimaker 2+

Good afternoon to you all,

So let me introduce my problem.

A few weeks ago, we did a firmware update for our UM2+. Since that date, all the problems started to arrive.

For every print and even buildplate calibrate, the dimensions of the Y axis are divided by two. The X and Z are ok for the dimensions and speed.

The printer used the same quantity of material as if the Y axis were "full scale", the part is all squeezed in the Y direction.

So after checking the web, i did severals things:

- Check all the belts and pulleys, and tightened everything.

- Check all the plugs connected to the electronic board

- Modify the set-up of Cura for this printer (mainly the size of the table in Y direction)

- Put all the firmware for UM2+ started with 14.04 until the last one

- I did not made any change to the firmware using Marlin or Arduino

Despite all those check-up, i still have my problem.

And the LED is not working, but this my least problem.

Actually, i am really stuck and i don't know what to do.

If someone can help me, it will be great.

Thank you

    i think he means 15.04..

    after a firmware update, i would always do a complete factory reset.. it will clear any wrong eeprom settings. can you do a factory reset and let us know if this resolves it?

    I just did the update with cura 2.3Beta, and then a factory reset.

    And no change with my problem.

    Small update: after using Printrun, i managed to modify the M92 line (for step unit on each axis). And now everything to works, UM2+ is printing a test part and everything seems ok.

    Thanks for your 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
