We are setting up a Ultimaker Original + and there is clearly a problem with the homing. Please see the video.

This is upon adding the printer for the first time to CURA and leveling the buildplate.

 

Please Help!

    I built and got a UMO working but I've never tried that particular wizard thing.

     

    Is it supposed to be homing?  If so it's going to the opposite corner than it should be.  You can pick one of the twisted pairs that goes to the connector (where the cable connects to the PCB (printed circuit board) and pop out two of those and swap them.  That will reverse the stepper.  But first see if it is trying to home...

     

    Try pushing on the endstops in the near left corner (front left corner) while doing that movement.  Press them twice (homing goes to those twice).

     

    Actually also make sure you got all the right endstops going to the correct locations on the circuit board.

     

    Also make sure that when you push the head to a corner you hear the end stops click.

     

    Personally I would install pronterface - I find it easier to debug.  It shows the status of the limit switches also in pronterface so you can test those first.  Then you can make sure that +X moves head right and +Y moves the head to the rear.

     

    Get pronterface here. It's free:

    Oh but you need a PC.  Do you have a pc?  In the video you used a mac.

    I dont have a PC.... just the mac.  

     

    We were trying to do the buildplate leveling/calibration when it goes to that corner and doesnt stop. 

     

    This is a new development as the first time we calibrated it homed correctly (front left). Then we had to adjust the Z stop because we were having extruder issues (prints were coming out stringy). After we adjusted the nozzle we tried to recalibrate and the nozzle homing onto the build plate clips - and then did the thing where it seemed to home in the back right corner and ignore the limit.

      • 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
