Updated Ultimaker 2+ board needs to cool down

Recommended Posts

I have an uptdated Ultimaker 2+. After changing the board from version 2.1.1 to 2.1.4 (with the older version the printer lost the gcode for a little time, so that the z-axis lost his position) I can not start the printer. It leveled the z-switch and than stucks the stepper with an ugly nois. I proved the z-switch, it gives the sign to the board. cura is download Version 2.6.2. After it I changed back the old board, and printer start as usual. I am cooling the stepperdriver with heat sinks and the printer works with the old board about 1 hour without problem. Before cooling it works only for a few minutes. Can you give me an advice what I can do to work with the controllerboard version 2.1.4.? Thanks for your Reply.

    • "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.
