New Ultimaker 2+ turns off midprint

Recommended Posts

I am printing casings for electronics. With my new Ultimaker 2+ I made 3 successful prints. However, when trying to print 4th time my Ultimaker2+ just turned off mid-print. My previous prints differed in material, settings and nozzle size so I doubt there is problem in settings. Current model I am trying to print with PLA and 0.8 nozzle (with standard fast print settings available in CURA) and it fails during first layer print (no error just turns off).

While I am writing this post I am trying to print this model again.

Any ideas?

Cheers, Domagoj.

As Didier says.

I also had this once when the 230V power cable came loose from the power supply. After that I made a clamp from steel wire, so that the power cable can never detach by itself. Never happened again.

Also, on the Ultimaker2 (I don't know about the plus), the little power connector at the back of the printer needs to *click* into place. Otherwise it is not inserted deep enough.

I would check these first.

    • 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.
