UM3 stops in the middle of print

Recommended Posts

Hi,

since a few days my prints stop at random points. This occurs sometimes after 2 hours, sometimes after 18 hours at different locations in the same gcode.

The printer stops but doesn't show an error message at all. The menu doesn't react to any commands and I have to restart the printer.

In another topic I have read that this can be caused by 3.6 firmware. I've updated it to 4 but the problem still occurs.

Thanks for you help!

This would have put the log files onto the USB drive.

Please send the log files to us, using WeTransfer, so we can analyze.

But mostly, this is caused by some problem with the cable getting loose in the printhead.

See http://ultimaker.com/ER18 for information and on the forum https://ultimaker.com/en/community/42426-print-head-error-communication

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
