ER26 and .gz file Extension Troubles

Recommended Posts

I'm getting some problems here. I updated to 3.3.1 today, and did a firmware update for our Ultimaker 3. My old gcode files seem to work fine, but the new files are appended with a '.gz' file extension. If I open the file in notepad, the content is chinese(?) characters and empty blocks.Partial example below

 This doesn't seem right.....

 

If I try to start a print it generates an er26 message. If I delete the .gz extension and save with a gcode extension, the file appears empty. If I try to run it, the printer starts but goes directly to 'Print finished' message. Anyone know what might be going on?

 

Same thing seems to be going on in my dump log ('.gz' file and chinese characters)

P.S. Sorry if this is a duplicate, I tried to reply in the 'Multiple error codes' thread initially.

  Update:

 

  Ok, I figured out that the characters are probably just an artifact of the 'gz' compression. (let me know if that is not the case) But if I choose 'save to file' after slicing and save as gcode, I get proper looking gcode. But I still get the ER26 message on the printer when I try to run the file.

 

 Any ideas?

I think I finally have a resolution. After many attempts at fixing Cura, I finally formatted the USB key I was using, downloaded the firmware updates again, and updated the printer firmware again. The files must have been corrupted or something went wrong in the first firmware update, as things seem to be working fine now.

 

Hope this helps someone else.

    • 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.
