Help, I can’t print!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Help, I can’t print!

Hi! 

 

I’m having trouble printing my model with Ultimaker 2+.

 

I place the SD card, then I select the file. 

The printer does some kind of processing and within seconds it says that it has been printed. 

 

What do I do? 

 

Thanks in advance.

It looks like the gcode file on the SD card was not created properly. Did you use Cura to prepare the model for printing?

If you did, which version of Vura did you use? If it is a newer version (version 3.6 is the latest one), then check the „layer preview“. Check the dropdown list in the top right corner of the model preview in Cura. When you switch to layer view, there you can see what the printer would print. There is also a vertical slider. Use it to scroll through the model to see each layer.

 

Also check the file size of the resulting gcode file. If it is unreasonably small (like below hundred KB or so) - that‘s another indicator that something went wrong with slicing.

 

Another reason could be that you tried to print very very small model which is too small for the printer to physically print. If you look at the layer view in Cura you would then see that nothing was sliced.
