Printcore 2 height problem

Posted · Printcore 2 height problem

Hi there.I´m having some troubles with my last printings and i´ve realised that the printcore 2, even when the lift switch is up, remains lower than printcore 1. Now appears the "Difference between detected height of both PrintCores exceeds realistic values" error. However this is an usual error for me.

The problem is that I cannot level the platform cause printcore 2 is always lower than printcore 1

Any ideas? Could it be a problem with the spring? I feel it isn't working well when I do this and the lift switch seems to work fine:

I´m using Ultimaker 3 extended

Thanks

    Instead of just using one hand, try using the other hand to squeeze from the nozzle to the clear part.

     

    Slide it up and down many times.  Where is it sticking?  The spring can get jammed and start to come out of the clear part.

     

    Taking the clear part and spring off is easy.  Try doing that and putting it back together.  Here is a detailed video of taking your core apart but you only need to remove the clear part so it's quite simple.

     

    Full disassembly is really a last resort and can destroy your core but taking off the clear part is simple.

    More likely I'm thinking something is broken in your UM3 print head.  Try putting other cores into the right side.  Do they go up and down when you slide the lever?

    Thanks. I´ve tried to disassemble just the clear part and the spring looks good. Just the black piece is a little bit loose, but this only affects when you load the printcore right? when the printer is working the black piece is unusefull.

    The print head also looks good. I have no idea what is happening. So I attach two pictures with the lift switch up and down. Maybe you can see what is wrong here. (I know it's not the cleanest print head 😅)

    Thank you so much

      • 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.
