System Date & Time ?

Recommended Posts

Had a failed print last night and went to see if there was something in the logs to explain (printer had just stopped in the middle of the print, no visible error).

Log says todays date is Jan 2 1970, and there are only entries from that date.

 

Where can I set the correct date and time?

Anything else I should be concerned about like why it has reset the date?

Which kind of printer is this?

 

The UM3 electronics doesn't include a real time clock that you can set manually (AFAIK). I think, it tries to get the system time from an ntp server, if it is connected to a network that allows this (firewalls or a proxy may deny it). The S5 uses the same electronics.

 

It's normal that the printer always starts with 01.01.1970 - no need to worry.

    • "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.
