Reconnecting print head assembly to motherboard


Recommended Posts

Posted · Reconnecting print head assembly to motherboard

I am reconnecting the print head to the motherboard after a nozzle fell out during the print build and PLA extruded in the head. (Yay! got that all out with commercial hot gun!) We had an extra head. I was going to replace it, but someone VERY HELPFUL decided to go ahead and take out the old one. I don't know where everything reconnects and have been unable to find any youtube videos that exactly show an Ultimaker 2+. I've reconnected all (orange and blue, yellow and green, two heater wires)  except the short brown/orange and the long white/red (which appears to be a heater wire...). I can send pics... ? The brown/orange is inside the black mesh "conduit" and is not connected to anything in the print head??? and it comes out the other end. I have no idea where it connects on the motherboard. TEMP1? The long white/red may be what is described as the PT100 sensor? I found this file:///C:/Users/kbarnett/Downloads/um2 assembly manual V1.1 _english.pdf.

      • 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
