UM2 Built Plate not heating up

Recommended Posts

Have been running my UM2 for since 2014 with the usual maintenance and not having major problem.

Today suddenly there was a bad burnt smell and my print was in a mess of tangle wire.

Going through the maintenance menu found Built plate heater not working.

Have to check tomorrow to see what is wrong.

 

Anyone face this problem before?

Yikes, I guess one of the wires had worked loose and was shorting.

I had my wires come unsoldered from the buildplate itself. Difficult to solder because of so much metal, but it's been working for a couple of years since the repair.

 Yea it is because the connector is the spring loaded type and not screw on - before this happen was getting some very bad print with lifting from the built plate.

      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
