Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 3 Problem



I have a problem with my ultimaker 3.

De print was done printing and someone turned of the power without first clicking that the print was removed.


Now when i start it up again the same lines come up the display "remove print" and I can't click it away,


Please help me.

    It sounds like it's bricked.  Please, do you know what version it is?  I think it might show the version briefly on power up.  You probably have the "stepping stone" version which was never meant to be used to print but meant to be used to upgrade to the next version.  That version has this bug you describe.  But if this is the absolute latest version that came out a few days ago, then it would be good to know this.


    How to unbrick:

    This is possible yes, but it doens't show the number of the current version.

    My ultimaker does not have a sc-card slot and i have tried it with a usb but that doens't work...


    Is there any other possible way to fix this if this is indeed bricked?


    Thank you very much for the fast feedback.

    All UM3 printers have SD card slots.  Do you have a chinese clone?


    Look at the photos in the link above again.  Did you remove the bottom cover?  Did you remove the micro-USB  cable?


    Please show photographs of the red circuit board in the same area.


    Unfortunately, finding the SD card is the easy part.  formatting the SD card with the right software and transferring the boot image in raw binary format (not into a FAT partition for example) is the harder part.


    The only other option is to ship this back to your reseller and they will do the same thing.  The problem is that these printers are so often damaged with shipping that I don't recommend that.

    You were right, I looked in the bottom and indeed there was a sd-card slot.

    I put it in and after a full day and a half the bleu light around the select button still hasn't turned green...


    I followed the instructions carefully. 

    What can i do?

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
