Print stops midway. Says he finished.


Recommended Posts

Posted · Print stops midway. Says he finished.

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?

    Could be that you didn't copy the entire gcode file onto the SD card? Perhaps you didn't cleanly eject the SD card when removing it from the computer? Check the file size of the gcode file on the SD card with the original on your computer.

    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.

      • 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
