UM3E - Automatic Levelling fails but insists on repeating the print cycle


Recommended Posts

Posted · UM3E - Automatic Levelling fails but insists on repeating the print cycle

(I had versions of this problem last week)

 

This morning, I started a new print. Automatic Leveling activated and decided the print cores were not alighed. Before I took any further steps, it tried to start the print again, going into automatic leveling, with the same result. Even when I switched the machine off and on again, it immeidately tried to start printing with the same Leveling failure. I must have had five levelling failures in a row without my being able to pause things to assess what to do next.

 

In between all this, I cleaned the print bed and the tip of the print cores and it eventually decided to print. The point about this is that the machine/software takes on a mind of its own.

 

I downloaded the relevant coding dump. How do I get that to you?

    You can add it to your reply I think?

    a gz file is I think a g-code, which is in fact a list of coordinates telling the Ultimaker which motors to move when (i.e. your digital print). I thought you wanted to send a log?

    I thought that that was what I was doing when I went into the maintenance directory. I probably won't be able to have another go at the log for a couple of days (traveling)

        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
