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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
