Ultimaker 2 Z stop


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Ultimaker 2 Z stop

Hi all

 

We have an Ultimaker 2 at work, which gave me a headache yesterday.

Long story short, it is now stuck in the first part of the factory reset because the z-stop is engaged and it gives an error message. (z-stop stuck/broken)

 

I have tried moving the bed (with printer turned off), and when I start the reset procedure it just moves down, engages the z-stop and throws the error.

I interfaced with the printer through pronterface, and the error seems to be that the printer should move to engage the stop, and then move back 7mm to disengage. But the printer seems to not move and the z-stop remains activated forcing the error.

 

I tried recalibrating using the below video tutorial, but several of the commands don't seem to get a response from the printer!?:

 

Any suggestion are most welcome 🙂

 

Best regards

Malte

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...

        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.
