Excruder is malfunctioning

Posted · Excruder is malfunctioning

Two weeks in, and not many prints to show. I have over 8 hours in trouble shooting. My machine is a 3 and won't excruder properly. So no starting any project until this is worked out. One head is toast....I guess I will buy another? I am not sure how to even explain the issue. It started with a clog, and now won't allow a print. I have cleaned all heads, and have rebooted so many times. Why is my 200$ printer more reliable? I have been pumping out piece after piece with few issues. This one has a good resolution, but seems to be a lemon next to my 200 dollar cheaply? Wow new customer, not so impressed.

    Hi and welcome to the community.

    Just to let you know i deleted the second post on this issue (no need to have answers on two differents posts).

    Regarding your issues, could you be more specific?

    What are your printing parameters? Your filament?

    I see that you clogged on of the cores... have you tried to clean it (atomic method?)

    Are you near Boston Mass? You could bring the printer by my house if you are.

    If you really did ruin a core I'd be happy to buy it off you - I have parts to repair cores and all the USA stores seem to be sold out of cores right now.

    Please post more details. There are so many things that can go wrong and I have no hints about your specific problems.

      • 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
