Loud noise, unable to print

Hello fellow ultimakers!

Unfortunately i have a problem with my ultimaker 2. As you can see in the video it looks like the printhead tries to go futher in the left back corner than possible. I tried to find the problem and the only thing i could find was the end stops being bent and not touching the printhead when it's in the corner. But the printhead touches the end stops and you can hear the clicks. Unfortunately ultimaker does nog respond to me so i hope the community can help me. I'm not able to print and it's really frustrating.

Big thanks,

Victor

    I think is missing to touch an endstop, therefore it keeps searching for it. Move manually to the corner the head (while off so steppers are unlock) and fell if clicks x/y endstop. Inspect them visually for bending.

    I have tried it. It maked contact with the end stops. I can hear them both clicking. The printhead seems to be stopped by the end stop on the left, but tries to go to the back despite the fact that it touches the endstop

    Thanks for the replies

    then try this

    Put it in the front right corner, make it home and click on the endstop with your finger (or anything to activate it).

    Do this on both endstops, it should stop the move of the head in the corresponding direction (X or Y), if it doesn't stop then check the connections on the electronic board, and also check if you didn't pinch the endstop cable behind the feeder motor (that happens a lot).

    I have tried it. One of the end stops seems to be not doing it's job. Its the one on the left. I have checked all the wiring and everything seems to be OK.

    As you can see in the video both end stops click. I think the weird part is i printed something without problem, but when wanted to print another think suddenly this problem occured

    I would check the faulty endstop with a multimeter.... or just replace it...

    Or if your in a hurry cut of the cable close to the end stop and solder on new wirering...

    Yes you probably need to replace the endstop, contact your reseller!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
