UM3 Safety Shutdown?

Posted · UM3 Safety Shutdown?

Does anyone know of any safety features that engage on UM printers if they detect a problem? In my situation I believe it to be the X / Y stepper motors overheating.

 

The problem: printer stops printing after about 30 minutes,lights go off, all heaters shutoff, display shows no issue for several minutes then shows X / Y motors stuck or switch broke (ER17) with the print head in the middle of the bed 

 

A little insight to my situation:

1. problem didn't exist prior to today when I updated firmware (does firmware have a way of knowing motor temps?)

2. stepper motors are getting hot enough to the tough that it is very uncomfortable to keep your hand on them (too much voltage?)

3. takes roughly the same amount of time for the shutdown to occur when trying to print the same part twice (time for motors to overheat?)

4. UM3E roughly 6 months old

 

My first thoughts are safety shutdown. I don't feel it would be an improper voltage setting from the factory that took almost 6 months to appear, nor a thermal runaway issue considering it indicates a movement problem. Any help would be great.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
