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.
