Posted · Ultimaker 2+ printing at start level above not at build plate

Hi, we have an ultimaker 2 that updated to ultimaker 2+.  I used it fine after that upgrade.  Now it has been a while and I upgraded the firmware with the latest cura for a Ultimaker 2+ printer and the printer first tried to print off the build plate.  I factory reset the printer and now it prints up in the air (the nozzle doesn't lower).  Also no fillament comes out.  Help!?

    Here I saved the gcode to sd card from the new version (latest) of cura and it started fine, but then it started to move the nozzle outside the object print area and print weird things!?  Since the printer was originally a Ultimaker 2 and we purchased an upgrade to the Ultimaker 2+ from Ultimaker should I use a different printer setting like Ultimaker2 rather than 2+?

     

    Is it possible to roll back to a previous firmware and use an older version of Cura?  How do I do that?

    Also, I should note it does this behavior when print from usb.  If i use an old SD card print it works fine!?

     

    In Cura - Machine settings - change the GCode-Flavor to "Marlin".

    "Ultimaker"-Flavor works only if the print is started from sdcard.

        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.
