Why do some of my prints stop before they finish printing?

These have been downloaded from thingiverse, and small items print without a problem

but if they are tall they will always stop before they have finished printing.

Please can you tell me how to stop this happening?

    There are many possible reasons.  First look at your part in Cura layer view.  Does it stop "early" there also?  If so then post some photos of the part in normal view and also layer view and also xray view.


    If the part looks fine in layer view then you are having hardware issues.  Maybe your power supply is glitching part way through the print or maybe you put the gcode file on a USB stick or SD card but pulled it out before the file was finished being written onto the card so you could compare the gcode file on the USB/SD to the original and see if it was full written.
