UMO with HBK: Heated bed causes resets.

Recommended Posts

I recently upgraded my old Ultimaker Original with a heated bed kit.

Everything works, but heating / controlling the bed causes random resets. When the bed temperature is set to 0, everything prints fine.

Just setting the bed at 60° and not printing will not cause resets, but when the bed is controlled during a print, it resets frequently, but randomly. Could be 5 minutes, could be 30 minutes.

I suspect switching the bed on/off causes some power fluctuations . Currently don't have a scope to verify this this.

Checked all the wiring to make sure it's not a short or loose wire somewhere.

Anybody seen this before? Any ideas how it could be resolved? Like putting a big capacitor across the heated bed connector, for example.

- Printing from SD

- Electronics 1.5.3 with upgraded arduino mega256 board

- Ful graphic smart controller

- Marlin 16.04.1

I'd check the label on each power supply brick and see what each is rated for.

On my heated bed upgrade to my UMO, I really had to screw down hard on the terminals to make a good connection. When I was reading your post, I was thinking you might have had the same issue I had. But if you have a weak power supply, that'll cause problems!

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
