UM3 Error printhead moves into build plate!

Posted · UM3 Error printhead moves into build plate!

Hey there, 

 If I pause the print after a few layers, the print head moves down into the print and build plate before it moves up.

It happens all the time. It happens within the bottom layers. The leveling is manually but well. I think it does not happen within the infill.

I use Cura 4.4 and an UM3 with the actual firmware. 

I figured out that default there is a end g-code in my printer settings:

 

G91 ;Relative movement

G0 F15000 X8.0 Z0.5 E-4.5 ;Wiping+material retraction

G0 F10000 Z1.5 E4.5 ;Compensation for the retraction

G90 ;Disable relative movement

 

Is the issue there? 

 

Thanks in advance!

    That gcode looks fine. 

     

    Sounds like a new firmware bug for the Um3.  This sounds familiar.  @Dim3nsioneer - is this a new firmware bug possibly?  Is there an older version of the UM3 firmware that doesn't do this?

     

    What version of the firmware do you have Pia92?

    To answer this question:

    The end script is not executed if the print pauses.

     

    How do you pause the print? On the printer, in Cura, with a post-processing script, or...?

    Sorry, for letting you wait.

     

    I reset Cura Connect, it is still the same. Acutually, I am not even using Cura Connect. I start my prints from a USB flash drive.

     

    I pause the print on the printer, no Cura command or script.

      • 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
