Print Stopped Short of Completion

Recommended Posts

Posted · Print Stopped Short of Completion

With Cura 13.04, I had a strange issue. My print stopped a few mm short of completion and I can't explain it. I wasn't by the printer when it happened, but since the UC displayed the print time and the head was home, I think a power failure or sd card issue can be ruled out.

The layers look perfect inside of Cura:

But here is the print:

Any ideas?

I'd like to try salvaging this print by truncating the completed gcode and re-running it. The gcode file actually looks complete, so in hindsight, I guess this was a failure of the machine, not Cura.

Hahahahaha, okay problem solved.

I found the small extruder drive gear laying on my workbench! It was spit off right where my print halted, so neither Cura or the Ulticontroller are to blame!

I measured the print, deleted all layers before that height and it looks like it should finish up nicely.

Feel free to delete this thread since it doesn't really have anything to do with Cura :)

Personally, i think this thread should stay up here as a lesson for us all :-) Glad you got it sorted out - definitely a bit of a head-scratcher :-)

I'm going to try switching over to the double-herring bone drive gears.
