One of my Ultimaker 2 extended 3D printers facing the issues.

1. Ultimaker 2 extended 3D printer suddenly stops the printing, and that time we are not able to operate the machine,

2. when the print is running if we want to operate Tune option it also stops and stuck like a statue.


for this above issues, we have updated latest version firmware but this issue is not resolved

Please find the below-attached videos link and give some solution.

    Which firmware version are you running (what is the number of the version you installed?) and which version of Cura are you running? 

    Have you modified anything in Cura that might alter the start of the gcode, like changing the g-code flavor?

    Dear SandervG


    Thanks for the reply!

    We are using the firmware version 15.04.5 and Cura also we are using the same version (15.04.5).

    we have not modified anything in Gcode.


    if we update the latest firmware version( 3.3.1) to the printers the feeder gear is rotating reverse while loading the filament.

    Hi Praveen, firmware is not the same as the Cura version. You should connect your Ultimaker to your pc, open Cura, go to manage printers and select upgrade firmware. Here are instructions.


    This should probably help!

      • 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
