Ultimaker 2+ swapping material doesnt work...

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

so i started printing as usual, the plan was to resume the print after 7 hours with a different material as i used to do:

Pause it, select Change material etc.

Now this time after the 7 hours, i went throught that process again. When the Printer threw the old material out, i selected PLA as i always do (cause i print with PLA). Then though, it said:

Heating printhead for material Insertion.

then after some time, the "heating" changed into a "cooling" and then swapped between the two every second or so. Now i couldnt even resume the print as the material was already ejected. I had to factory reset the Printer, loaded the material and did a test print to see, whether the Problem still remained.

Now it did the same Thing again.

Is this a Software bug? I mean, all temperature sensors must be working fine since it started printing.

Any tips? I mean i could try to install the very latest Software update, since it didnt do the bug before i updated i a month ago or so...

Greets, Ka

    • "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.
