Print Stopped Short of Completion

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 :)

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
