UM3+ stopped mid-print, did not home, could not pause, ran clock down to 00:00 without finishing print

Recommended Posts

UM3+ purchased 6 months ago stopped mid-print and stayed in the position where it stopped after leaving it overnight. It had gotten to 3/4 of a 40hr print. The extruder was not heated, the filament was expelled, and the print was not burned or melted. When I came in, the timer read 00:00 and the only option was for me to attempt to Pause the print. When that didn't work after 30 minutes, I attempted to Abort. That also did not work. I switched the printer off and then re-homed the z-axis and removed my print.

I'm not very experienced with how to upload my logs, but I have them on my USB (boot0,boot-1,boot-2,boot-3). If you could help me with which log you would like to see, I can respond with it attached.

This printer has run for three days straight with a perfect print. Most times it will take on 12-24 hour prints. All the parts seem fine, it just seems like a printer software malfunction. Any help would be great. Thanks.

I once had something vaguely similar to this which turned out to be the SDCard - it had errors on it (my printer is an UM2 hence SDCard not USB) This was fixed after I re-formatted the card

it may be worth checking the USB stick for errors

    • Print Core CC | Red for Ruby
      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
