Ultimaker 2 started acting strange

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I bought Ultimaker 2 in 2015 august.

It was printing fine for like 3600 hours.

Recently it started acting strange. Sometimes when printing the head starts going in places where it should not go. Sometimes feeder starts feeding too fast. Sometimes starts just feeding plastic all over the place.

On the back side of the PCB there are some brown areas near the drivers but nothing very serious.

Cables and connectors look fine - never touched them.

Maybe the board needs some additional cooling?

I use a lot Pause@Z function - may it have some influence on it?

I maintain it properly - clean, lubricate, etc...

Cura 2.3.1

Update: I suspect that my SD card is wearing out. Will see what I can do

    • "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.
