Ultimaker 2+ Extended Nozzle Temp Drops After Mid-Print Filament Change


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2+ Extended Nozzle Temp Drops After Mid-Print Filament Change

Title says it all.


Filament change is initiated, the current material will retract, I insert the new material and select Ready to advance it. when it starts coming out of the nozzle, I press the Ready button again, and when that happens, the print will start back up as it should, but the nozzle stops heating. The nozzle temp will just start dropping. This prevents the material from coming out since it's solidifying now.

I hope this is an easy solution but every time I google the issue, I get very generic 'solutions' since the search terms are generic phrases/words.

I've tried OctoPrint mid-print filament change, using Cura's Post-Processing Plugin, and manually pausing my machine to change filament. This tells me it's a firmware (machine specific) thing and not Cura itself.


The only way I've gotten it to 'work' (not really) is that if I'm using Octoprint I can quickly turn back on the nozzle heater after I complete the filament change, so the nozzle temp drops for only a second, but that's not exactly a solution.


Look forward to your help.
