Layer Shift after 7 hour pause

Hey. 

 

I'm having a bit of trouble when I'm pausing a print over night (due to long print times and I can't really sleep with my printer printing 6 metres from my bedroom). 

 

When I resume the print in the next morning there often is a 1mm offset to the right from the old and the new layer. Can I do something against it?

    Hmmmm, ok....I wonder if something is knocking the plate over a bit.

     

    When the printer goes into pause, it homes the printhead to the front left (from facing the printer) and then goes to the back right. Is there anything like that, that you see when resuming?

    The bed stays hot the whole 7 hours, right?  Because you don't want the bed to cool - if it does the part will likely come loose enough to look like a shift.

    Would that not happen during a long term print? Why would the printhead sitting still while the buildplate is hot be different from regular long term printing?

    Yeah, the bed stays hot during the pause. I will try it again and see if it will happen again. Maybe I was just unlucky....

    Another possibility:

     

    Someone in the German forum mentioned recently that there may be a firmware bug. He said that there's an offset of the print position after resuming - depending on the active print core. There where no details about which axis or by which amount though... He just said, the pause function on the UM3 is useless for him because of this.

    If you use both print cores and if it is reproducible, you discovered perhaps the same issue?

    I have not noticed this on my machines. And I have paused on both printcores for various reasons.

    It looks like this for me after every pause longer than 2 hours...

    Is it a layer shift for sure?  or just an underextruded layer?  An underextruded layer would make more sense as it was dripping for a while - you could lift the lever on the feeder and slide some more filament in just before you start - but not too much or it will overextrude I think.  For normal loading of filament I slide it in until it stops then back off about 1cm.  Not sure how much to back off on a "resume" as I've never tried it on a UM3.

    I‘m sure that this is a layer shift because the following layers stay like this the whole print without going back to the „normal“ position.

      • 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
