Printer doesn't start to print, immediately finished


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Printer doesn't start to print, immediately finished

Hi, I want to print an architectural model. It is originally in .obj. In .obj my printer seems to start, but time to print is unknown.  When I start the job, it is finished in 2 seconds, my printer tells me the job is finished. So didn't print at all. 

I tried to convert to .stl, but it is still the same.... who can help me?

Original the model is made in sketchup. 

Thanks for your help

    Ik probeer een architectuurmodel te printen, echter hij print niet, omdat Cura denkt dat hij geen materiaal verbruikt.  Is dus meteen klaar met printen, nog voor hij gestart is.... hoe los ik dit op? Ik heb al ingevoerd dat ik PLA gebruik....

    There may be something wrong with the model, or at least something that Cura doesn't like.

    In Cura - what does it look like in Preview?  That will be what is sent to the Gcode file.

    Have you tried to export the file in a different format? (something other than .OBJ that Cura will open)

        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.
