Ultimaker 3 Issues

Posted · Ultimaker 3 Issues

Purchased an Ultimaker 3 just before the New Year,

only managed to print one print over the wifi before the printer decided to not connect to the wifi anymore. Can not create a hotspot either. Not that big of an issue... as I could still print via usb.

Printed every working day since then, printer worked fantastically, until I went to use the second nozzle (I had previously used it for support filament on a calibration print). Wanted to change the filament to PVA. Start the change procedure before changing the nozzle from BB to AA and there was no exit in the menu so i powered the device off via the switch on the back. Went to restart the machine and the fan powers on briefly then stops. No light on the screen. Power supply light is blue. Any ideas to try??

Cheers

    Hi @mmacinnis,

    Welcome to the forums! I'm sorry to hear you seem to have some troubles.

    Have you ran the wifi set up from the start again? Do you get some error messages or what will happen?

    l regard of your print core, how long have you waited after turning on your Ultimaker 3? Because the Ultimaker 3 has a big brain, it takes approx 40 seconds for it to start up. First the fans will turn on, and then the rest will follow.

    Have waited long enough to see this happen?

    Hi SandervG

    Yes ran Wifi from start again, it can not create the hotspot needed to input the wifi details.

    Have waited hours with no response. In update to this it sometimes does manage to turn on, seemingly randomly. Try turning it on 10-15 times with nothing then it will work. Turn it off again and it can not turn on for a while, then it will work...

    Hi, mmacinnis,

    Can you reach out to Support@fbrc8.com? Since you're located in Canada we should be able to get you the hardware to repair the printer or send you a label to take it in for repair. It sounds like there may be an issue with your wifi board.

      • 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.
