Printer breaks filament connection when resuming print with altered GCODE


Recommended Posts

Posted · Printer breaks filament connection when resuming print with altered GCODE

Hello. I had a print run out of filament on a Monoprice Maker Select V2 that I had sliced with Cura. I had issues trying to resume and appreciate any thoughts.


Every time the print would begin extruding to resume, the filament would break. I tried this about 4 times and with a second spool.




I followed the tips here: 



And I now see the thread here:


Basically, I used the printer to measure its own Z axis and erased all of the Cura GCODE above that layer. But did I erase something important that prevents it from breaking its own filament?


I've started the print over now (from nothing), and everything is working normally. But I'll likely want to be able to resume like this in the future and hope to learn how to fix the process.

      • 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
