Printing problems with UM3 firmware to 4.3.2

Recommended Posts

I just updated to 4.3.2 yesterday on my UM3 Extended and now I'm having multiple issues.

 

1) Printer is under-extruding badly

2) Build plate now takes forever to heat up

3) Firmware heats automatically to 60c before the gcode tells it to only be at the temp I assigned

4) After a print is aborted it wants to clear both cores, but I'm only using one. So, I have to wait for it to heat up core 2 and retract nothing before it will continue. I skip through this, but shouldn't have to. I don't know what it would do after completing a print as I haven't gotten that far yet.

5) After aborting print core 1 doesn't retract at all

 

Anyone else having issues or have an idea as to what is going on? Are any of these changes planned for some reason?

I didn't pay attention to what version I had before so don't know what to roll back to. I do see lots of people rolling back to 3.7.7 when they have firmware issues so I'm about to try that myself......

Well, running 3.7.7 didn't change anything. 

The only other thing I know I did before was directly after upgrading to 4.3.2 I tried to run a print using CURA to see if I'd like it any more than before. I've been using S3D with great success but thought I'd give it a try. Is there something that could have changed by trying to use CURA after that firmware upgrade?

I really need some help here as this is currently a giant paperweight.......

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
