ultimaler original complete crash

Recommended Posts

One of my students reported that the laptop that the UM was connected to was also connected to a microscope and when the microscope software went to run the UM dropped the build plate and continued to send it down even after it had run out of room and the display just shows solid blocks. When it powers on it is totally unresponsive. Is there some way to restore it? Any reset buttons anywhere or some other live giving magic?

I strongly recommend you get the ulticontroller for the UMO. It allows you to put the print job on SD card so that the printer doesn't need to be connected to any computer while printing and you don't have to worry about windows update or dozens of other issues like this.

I think you need to reboot the laptop also. The USB is probably in some weird state - or some weird baud rate - or maybe the microscope software has taken over the USB and so you can't connect to the printer anymore. A laptop reboot should help.

    • "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.
