UM3 finishes print right after heating up

Posted · UM3 finishes print right after heating up

Hi, I updated to cura 2.7 from 2.6 and now when I start a print, it only heats ups the build plate and hotend, then immediately says print finished. Tried going back to 2.6 and now it is doing the same thing there. I can see as it is heating up that there is no estimated print time, only job name and printing time of 00:00:00

    looks like it was actually the new .8mm core I installed. I changed back to the .4mm core and it is printing fine. Now I just don't know why it won't print with the new core

    Which firmware are you running on the printer?

    What material are you printing in the 0.8mm nozzle? Is it original Ultimaker or a generic material?

    The supported nozzle sizes and materials are a combination stored in material profiles on the printer. Cura v2.6 and earlier did overwrite those material settings on the printer. You might have to install Cura 2.7 again, this fixes the profile overwrite problem. Verify you have firmware v3.7 on the printer and do a factory reset on the printer in order to restore the original printer's material profiles.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
