Prints stopping at certain height


Recommended Posts

Posted · Prints stopping at certain height

Hi everyone, I am new to 3-d printing and have a Sunlu s8.  Please bare with me as I try to explain this.  I am trying to print a 'baby groot' and the printer just stops at z 149 and flashes.  I had something similar happen on another print and thought it was because I ran out of filament.  


I tried to edit the gcode to continue printing where it left off, but noticed the max z height set in the gcode is 149.  I have the print machine settings set to the maximum of the machine which I believe is 400mm.  Any idea why the gcode is printing at something smaller?






Thanks in advance.

    Hi I uploaded the files.  I had the same issue with 'toad', where it stopped near the end of the print.  I think I figured out that the z max height in the gcode is the max height of the object?  I tried to continue the print and realized when I put the number that was blinking on the machine, it took it to the top of where the print should have finished, which was also the z height max listed in the gcode.


    Thanks for your help.

      • 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
