Ultimaker 3 Extended Restarted Mid-Print


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 3 Extended Restarted Mid-Print



The printer was printing a rather time consuming model (1 day and 19 hours) when it suddenly switched off and back on during the last hour of printing. Does the printer have a max time during which it will automatically reboot? Has anybody else faced a similar issue and was able to identify the cause? Thanks!

    no there is no timeout, you can print as long as you want. 

    Maybe your power supply has a problem or you just got a power outage which caused the reboot.

    There was no power outage as I was working next to it when it rebooted. Lights and computers at the office were on the whole time. Weird. I will try printing again and let you know how it goes. Thanks Smithy

    When it happens again, then I guess you need to replace the power supply, but let's see, maybe it was just once.

    My department at work had a U3X and it was very sensitive to power fluctuations.  Our office was in an industrial park, and if the lights flickered, you knew it was going to stop.  Sometimes it would stop without any power events.  We bought a nice ($130) UPS for it and it never happened again.

      • 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
