UM3 - Printcore 2 temperature issue (stacked to 100°C)

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I just received and setup my ultimaker 3 printer. Setup procedure was completed, printer is calibrated and I got material coming out from both printcores (ultimaker PLA for printcore 1 and ultimaker PVA for printcore 2). So everything seems right.

I installed the latest version of Cura (2.4.x) and of course I used its ultimaker 3 profile settings. Also, printer firmware is updated. I use a LAN connection.

Now, my sample object is ready to print (extruder 1 prints the object, extruder 2 prints the supports). Print core 1 is working fine, but the problem is that no material comes out from print core 2 because its temperature cannot exceed 100°C. However, it is set to 205°C in the profile settings. I try to force it to 205°C from the printer menu (extruder 2 temperature) but I can't. It doesn't want to exceed 125°C either (100° + or - 25°)...

So what's the problem here ? Printcore 2 temperature should be 205°C, why is it stacked to 100 ?

Thanks in advance.
