Mark 2 Modification and Print problems

Recommended Posts

Posted · Mark 2 Modification and Print problems

following on from a previous thread about the calibration print (not printing) I have noticed the temp reading for both extruders are going up and down by 10 deg since the second head was added so if I set the temp say to 160 (low I know) the temp will drift up to 168 and down to 154 didn't notice this before when the single head was on,, any help appreciated.

    thanks for the reply, yes I understand the stand by temp,  I'm on about printing temp the 168 was  an example, I set left head at this temp and watched to see if stable then the right head..   if I'm printing at 205 then the temp goes up and down on both heads(when printing and when in stand by,  the right one in particular, I seem not to be able to get the calibration code to print (print not sticking even when bed adjusted)  and as said the temp readings for both heads goes up and down. I have prepared a dual colour print in cura (I usually use S3D) so that was a learning curve,,, I am going to run it later today and see what happens...

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
