I've just finished building my first 3d printer.  Its the Imakr Startt.  Assembly went easily enough though the instructions provided were not very clear - the USB drive they sent even had a word doc containing several corrections to the instructions included - which I did not find until after the build lol.  

Anyway, after putting in a lot of time building this thing and troubleshooting issues just to get it to print at all I'm at a bit of a standstill.  The printer seems to be printing ok at first but fails every time around 2 minutes into the print.  I'm using the latest version of Cura.  When the print fails the printer stops and the screen on the printer displays the startt logo.

    Double check the gcode file on the USB - maybe you pulled the USB before it finished copying?

     

    Maybe the power supply/brick is glitching?

     

    Sounds like an overheat issue on the power supply.  Does this have a heated bed?  If so turn off the bed just to see if it lasts for more than 2 minutes.

      • 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
