Print head always stops in the same position

Recommended Posts

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!

    • "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.
