Print stops midway. Says he finished.

Recommended Posts

I printed a part yesterday but the settings were wrong and the quality horrible. Today I tried it with a new file and different settings. It printed great but stopped half way through and left the print head touching the job and kept heating. So it wasnt a usual stop after it finished printing.

However the UltiControler said it finished "100% SD". I use Cura. Any ideas what is wrong? Could the stepper motors have overheated?

I did not safe eject it. And this feels like what happened. 9.9MB vs 9.5MB. That also explains why it did not remove the print head. Because that information was cut off.

However, I thought if you cut the connection while a file is transferred, the file would be corrupted anyway instead of being half finished.

    • "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.
