Nozzle Will Not Cool

Recommended Posts

The "wait a moment for Printcore 1 to cool down" progress bar on my Ultimaker 3 is frozen. I'm just going to restart the printer but this is not the first time this has happened. In general it seems like the cooling process is taking longer as well. Why could this be happening?

Did you change the bed temp manually? I ask because I found a bug to make that and is adjusting the core temp +X amount while the bed heats. That creates a bug (that I forgot to write anywhere @daid)

So. If you launch a print after a print. The cores MUST (silly imo) cool to 50C before they heat again (waste of time that must be for some security reason?). So, if while the bed heats you change one or other core to +X amount of temp, then the core never reaches the 50C that the firmware wants to start heating the cores.

Did I explain myself?

Basically, don't set an temp+ until the cores start heating, or you will be on the heating cores stage at infinitum).

    • "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.
