Printer suddenly stops

Recommended Posts

Posted · Printer suddenly stops

I have an Ultimaker 2+ and I've been using it on and off.

Over the last couple of weeks I've run into a few instances where the printer just stop in the middle of a print.

One time I was next to the printer and in that case the printer stopped and the print bed just started to drop down (like it was completely exhausted)

Other times the printer just stopped completely with the printer bed staying lifted and the nozzled "glued" to the cooled down 3D print.

I'm pretty sure that the G_code is OK because the last time it happened was a repeat print of a print I did earlier in the day and it printed without any issues.


Anyone have any suggestions what this could be? 


Thanks in advance
