Please help finish my print !!


Recommended Posts

Posted · Please help finish my print !!

after 2 days of printing the Ultimaker just stopped mid print, froze at the spot.

at 92% finished, this really bums me out.

could it be possible to adjust the G code file to resume where it left off ?

I wrote down the line number it stopped at

line 747507

Please someone adjust my file so I can resume the print, and not lose 2 days and a whole lot of material :(

or take out the bit that was not printed, and let me print it seperate.

here is the Gcode:


Nevermind :)

The print head could not home, and the printed part was in the way :(

so I took it of the bed.


I measured the part that was printed, and with Rhino3D I estimated what part was left to print,

this I cut from the object, and am printing the rest now, lets hope it fits !


I think what might have caused the problem, I wanted to shoot a vid of the last bit of printing,

and I plugged in the power cord of the HD cam, that's when it just stopped.....

guess the printer does not like that, I heard about some having problems with fluorescent lights and it disturbing the Ultimaker signal.


next time I will just let it print til the end, and not bother it :)

another hard lesson learned :(

    That's interesting. Could you provide me some more details?


    1. Did you use an earthed wall mount?

    2. How much power does your cam consume? (aprox)

    3. what was the distance from your cam up to the first stepper in de neighborhood?

    Could you try that again? And it isn't necessary to wait that long:-D We measured just a little disturbance, barely enough to measure, so stopping the engine is bad news, but I assume it can be solved.

    1- I don't have earthed wall mounts in the room.

    2- how much the charger uses, I don't know, but I suspect that the capacitors in the charger were the problem.

    3- the distance was about 1.5 meters.

    I just think I had to many plugs connected to one wall socket, and have changed this around to avoid the is the future :)

    the funny thing was, that Cura lost the connection somehow, and the UM did not respond to Cura move or pause commands, I had to restart the whole lot to get printing again.

    so it might not have been the UM at fault but my MacMini that lost the connection.

    Wow, ok, that will hardly be the result of an EMC problem.

    Imho one should never try to manage cnc machines by a pc/mac, especially not in case of not using earthed wall mounts. Ik Holland we use a phrase like: Asking for trouble...:-D

    And don't misunderstand me, it will work for many times, days or even years, but in case of malfunction, you'll never know the excact cause.

    After getting the advice about the combination of a pc/mac and an Ultimaker, I bought the Ulticontroller to avoid this.

    Anyway, you already succeeded to work around the problem. Did you manage to print the rest of it?

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • 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 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.
