Help an absolute newbie

Recommended Posts

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.

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
