critical error - crashed the printer!!!!!!!!!!


Recommended Posts

Posted · critical error - crashed the printer!!!!!!!!!!

Hello I just fount a really bad bug on my Ultimaker 2+


this has actually happened twice, the first time I thought I had moved the spinwheel or done something wrong but not this time....


I am printing with PETG so on warm up I wanted to give a few extra seconds for the filament to heat up and flow better so after selecting the print the build plate heats up then the nozzle heats up and just as it almost reached temperature and the hotend started moving I hit pause,


this caused the steppers to go into a fit, it all happened so fast I cant really say what happened but everthing was in the wrong place and after some panic and trying to abort the hotend moved into position and the build plate raised past its normal position and hit the nozzle HARD,


many horrible sounds later I managed to abort the print. the nozzle had damaged the brand new used twice magnetic build plate which is ruined and god knows what other damage has occurred, it would have smashed the glass I think has the new ziflex not been on there


yes the build plate was adjusted properly


so please can I have a response from the Ultimaker team on this??


have I cause more damage??


please dont tune or pause until the print is underway!!


can ultimaker release a fix for this?

      • 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
