Ultimaker UM2+ freezing/locking up

Recommended Posts

Just purchased a brand new UM2+. Arrived Tuesday and I am setting it up today.

 

I unpacked, removed the cable tie, switched on the unit and began to run through the "first use" guided sequence. As I scrolled the wheel to raise the bed for the first 1mm to nozzle adjustment, the firmware froze and became unresponsive. Button press did not work and scrolling did not work. So I restarted the unit and all went OK.

 

Next I had issues with printing directly via USB connection from Cura 3.4.0. Therefore I updated the firmware to _3.3.0 and Cura to 3.4.1.

 

While scrolling through the menu it again froze and needed a restart. I have since reset the unit to factory settings and had to run through the setup sequence again. So far no locking up, however I am concerned that it has now frozen twice.

 

Is this just a normal thing for the UM2+ machines?

      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "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.
