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.

    • "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.
