Quick Help for Layershifts needed

Recommended Posts

Posted · Quick Help for Layershifts needed

Hello! i am experiencing a Problem with Layershifts on a shared UM 3 Extended Printer. the shifts i am having a problem with look pretty much the same to 

https://community.ultimaker.com/topic/23607-layer-shifting-different-from-the-others/     <-- this one.

i have a few failed prints now thanks to this and as i happened to look at the printer i just noticed it started printing a layer in offset again. i paused the print now and want to ask if i can somehow fix it temporarily while the print is on standby so that i can still complete it? i hope someone can help me here! 


Thank you for reading and possibly responding!

Have a good day

    Added Info (here since it wont let me edit at the moment): i have just noticed, that the motors are not holding the head stiff as they are used to do. but there are no screws loose. it seems that the motors are braking the movement and give up for a split second. according to a infrared thermometer i have found the temps are around 80-90 C. could this be the reason for the problems? any Ideas?

      • 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
