printer stops durring prints

Recommended Posts

Posted · printer stops durring prints

I was printing some stuff out today and everything was going fine. I tried to print a keychain out that I have done many of times before, but the printer would stop after about 5 minuets into the print. when it would stop printing it would move the bed down a good 3 inches, and the head would "home" in the back right corner instead of the front left corner. I have restarted my computer and have let the printer sit turned off for a half an hour, and have reset the print settings in cura back to default.

has anyone had this problem, or know what's going on and how to fix it?

I have been printing for the last 2 weeks and have been running in to lots of problems with this ultimaker, but have gotten most of them solved thanks to you guys of this forum.

Do you have an ulticontroller? The behavior sounds a bit like the 'Pause at Height' plugin for Cura has been triggered. Have you been using that setting?

I do not have an ulticontroller. I saw the pause at height option in Cura, it is turned off.

Email me the problematic gcode file to gcode@fbrc8.com. Let me see if there's anything obviously wrong with it.

so I think I solved the problem. I downloaded the file from thingiverse again, and restarted Cura. I have not had the same problem again yet.

if I run into the same problem, I will send the gcode out.

thanks for the help
