MAXTEMP error on preassembled UM


Recommended Posts

Posted · MAXTEMP error on preassembled UM

Hi,

Yesterday I update my firmware to the newest Marlin firmware. I own a pressambled UM (Feb/20139). After 17h the ulticontroller shows me maxtemp error and printprocess stops. This is first time after printing a lot with the "old" firmware without any temperature(sensor) problems.

I checked the cables (on the top hof the printhead). Right now I print a smaller object, until now it prints fine. Its hard to replicate this error.

Could it be some troubles with Kisslicer Gcode and the new Marlin?

thanks for help.

greets, tom.

    Yesterday, I've made some modification on the tube (with PLA inside) then I had the MINTEMP error. I disconnected a cable on the heatedhead. After reconnect it, the problem was fixed.

    thanks. After reconnect the cable could you resume the print?

    I do nothing and print another stl (calibration cube) without the maxtemp error. maybe its happen because the model (with maxtemp error) have a lot of rounded filling (kisslicer) and my UM shaking like hell(printed 17h mostly fillin) and maybe this cause some cable connection error?

    I don't know if its software /firmware issue or problems with gcode or hardware issue...

    MAXTEMP is 275C. If you were printing at 260C or higher I would say you should try to get your PID values better. If you were printing cooler than 260C then it is loose cable (maybe on bottom of UM).

    See pictures and also step 5 on this page:

    hi, i checked my cable, it seems everthing ok. i tried to optimize my model (no errors in the mesh) and printed it with 190°C. after printed it severeal times and everytime it stops after a while with MAXTEMP error I decide to reload the old marlin firmware (cura 12.12a) and it works...so it seems to be an firmware issue!?

    I really doubt it. It's probably a bad wire or bad connection issue. If you have an ulticontroller, look at the tempearture while you wiggle the wires. If not, hook up a multimeter to the UM board and measure the voltage and then wiggle the wire. The voltage should change suddenly when you wiggle the bad connection. Move the head to the 4 corners. Touch the wire at every loose point in the print head. Touch it under your UM. Pull on it gently at all other locations. Shake the UM a little.

      • 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.
