No Active Leveling Before Print

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have Ultimaker 3 Extended, for some time the printer is acting a little bit weird. After I click "Print over network" in Cura, and loading on the printer I notice things are not as usual. Heating the bed is taking much more time( around 20min for PLA original profile) than before, the next thing is no active leveling bed before printing and it doesn't extrude material in the corner before printing. 

How can I fix theese things?

I can see nobody is taking interest in this topic and still I am going to write what's new ? So I manage to fix active leveling and in that particular case everything is ok, but still I cannot manage to discover why it doesn't pre-print purge, also the other strange thing is the the first extruder strats from position that is set for the second one(right middle corner). I checked the gcode flavor is Griffin, made calibration loft switch also.  Any ideas?

Am I supposed to be seeing a problem in these photos?

 

Did you change anything between when it *did* the prime purge until when it *didn't* do the primer purge?  Maybe you upgraded the firmware on the printer?  Or installed a new version of cura (I thought the priming was done in the firmware - not in cura - but I don't know for sure).

      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.
