Posted · Printer suddenly starts printing too high after testing simplify3d

Hello,

I had my Ultimaker 2+ for 3 weeks now and it has been constantly spitting out perfect prints.

But I heard so much positive stuff about simplify3d so I wanted to test that software to get more control on more difficult prints.

With simplify3d everything got messed up, it never wanted to start printing in the right height, not enough filament extrusion +++ a total mess no matter what I put the settings on.

So I went back to Cura and tried a print, but now the printer always starts to extrude 1mm higher then the bed leveling Ive set so the first layer naturally wont stick.

Have tried full reset, have tried new firmware but nothing helps. It always starts printing too high no matter what i do.

anyone have any tips to make the printer work again? wont touch simplify3d again thats for sure :)

    Did you do a factory reset? It's an option in the menu system somewhere. It resets the eeprom settings that s3d may have modified.

    S3D by default only changes the feeder motor

    amps, but it doesn't write that info, so after a reboot all gets back to normal.

    Try to run the calibration process to see if all is ok.

      • 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
