Print head always stops in the same position

Posted · Print head always stops in the same position

Good afternoon,

 

we are having the following problem with our Ultimaker 3:

Every time we print parts in a specific area of the build plate, the print head always stops at the same position (in the front, on the right-hand side) after having printed a few layers (approx. 10 layers).Our Ultimaker 3 will only print the parts, if they are placed on the build plate in a certain way, so that the position in which the print head would stop is avoided.

 

What's responsible for this error and how can we fix it?

 

Thank you in advance!

    Just to rule out something simple: is the 'Pause at Height' activated?

    Look under, Extensions  - Post Processing - Modify gcode.

    Once activated it stays there until you deactivate it, and it is easy to forget....
