Auto level issue after firmware upgrade


Recommended Posts

Posted · Auto level issue after firmware upgrade

I just updated the firmware in my U3 to current stable. Since then, the auto level feature is not working. I go through the process of manually leveling the bed then try the auto level feature and it doesn't get the nozzles close to the build plate. Then responds with the "out of reasonable" error message. How do I get auto level to work again? Thanks.

    the first thing I could imagine is an incorrect distance between the top of the base plate and the bottom of the heater plate, which should be approximately 14 mm for the auto leveling to work properly.

    There exists a distance tool for easy adjustment:




    Which error-number is the "out of reasonable" attached? Perhaps there is a helpful description and solution on the UM homepage, like for example this:



    Does your capacitive sensor work properly (can be checked in the diagnostics menue since last firmware)?

    Same issue here since update to

    In automatic leveling process (directly after manual leveling) the nozzles instead of touching the plate do stop about 10mm above the surface.

      • 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
