Strange Temp Sensor Bed Error Ultimaker 2+

Posted · Strange Temp Sensor Bed Error Ultimaker 2+

Alright so here's the scoop, I'm having a very odd issue with my printer and I need your guys input.

I'm a prop maker and I'm currently working on a helmet that consist of multiple parts that take anywhere from 8 hours to 16 hours to print. It all started after I finished an 11 hour print, I removed the part once the bed had cooled and I began another print and was met with this error

I contacted Fbrc8 support and we began to troubleshoot the issue. I checked the temp 3 connection to the main board and the connection to the heated build plate itself and both seemed to be fine. I even checked the resistance of the connectors to the heated build plate and those readings were fine. We decided that it wasn't the heated bed but the main board itself that wasn't functioning, fast forward to today, I received the replacement board and installed it with no issues. I fired up the printer and it took me to the setup wizard, when it got to the third step the build plate began to move up and suddenly the error appeared on the screen again
This was odd to me because the build plate wasn't being heated up and yet I was still experiencing the temp error. I went back and re watched the first and second video and I noticed that when the build plate is rising, it reaches a certain height and an audible sound can be heard accompanied by the error message so I did a test which can be seen here https://youtu.be/UUK8GBdArQU. I have to wait till Monday for a response from Fbrc8 so I thought id come here and see if I could get any help or theories of whats going on. I'm working on a commission right now that has a VERY close deadline and I need this issue fixed or I am totally screwed.

    Hi Aiden_Pearce,

    What you describe here is a typical error to be expected sooner or later. The bed heater and the bed heath sensor wiring is moving every times the bed is mowed, so this wires will break at some time. Move the bed a half way up, then move the wires a little to see if the error MSG. show up at the display. There is two places that's the wires are more prone to break, this is close to the bed "strain release" clamp and at the place where the wires enter the printer. This is a weak point of the printer and should be the first place to check for such an error.

    The same is true for the wiring going to the extruder head and this one suffer much more due to high intense movements.

    So to conclude here, this is the first places to expect this type of error.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • 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 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.
