UM2 not waiting for heated bed

Recommended Posts

Hi there, i have question:

I have received my UM2 last week :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P

And as for cura, i switched it to "rep/rap marlin" type G-code... (just because i'm a control freak i guess)

But i just cant get my printer to wait until the bed temp is reached.

i editted my start code:

like this:

;Sliced at: {day} {date} {time}

;Basic settings: Layer height: {layer_height} Walls: {wall_thickness} Fill: {fill_density}

;Print time: {print_time}

;Filament used: {filament_amount}m {filament_weight}g

;Filament cost: {filament_cost}

M190 S{print_bed_temperature}

M109 S{print_temperature}

G21 ;metric values

G90 ;absolute positioning

M107 ;start with the fan off

G28 X0 Y0 ;move X/Y to min endstops

G28 Z0 ;move Z to min endstops

G1 Z50.0 F{travel_speed} ;move the platform down 15mm

G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length

G1 F200 E20 ;extrude 20mm of feed stock

G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length again

G1 F{travel_speed}

;Put printing message on LCD screen

M117 Printing...

 

But it still does not wait until bed temp is reached???

also it does not properly fill in the parameters such as print date and used filament length...

See my g-code example:

 

;Generated with Cura_SteamEngine 13.11.2

;Sliced at: Sat 21-12-2013 15:37:32

;Basic settings: Layer height: 0.1 Walls: 1.2 Fill: 20

;Print time: #P_TIME#

;Filament used: #F_AMNT#m #F_WGHT#g

;Filament cost: #F_COST#

M190 S60

M109 S210

G21 ;metric values

G90 ;absolute positioning

M107 ;start with the fan off

G28 X0 Y0 ;move X/Y to min endstops

G28 Z0 ;move Z to min endstops

G1 Z50.0 F15000 ;move the platform down 15mm

G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length

G1 F200 E20 ;extrude 20mm of feed stock

G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length again

G1 F15000

;Put printing message on LCD screen

M117 Printing...

 

;Layer count: 149

;LAYER:0

M107

G0 F7500 X51.59 Y118.45 Z0.30

;TYPE:SKIRT

G1 F2100 E0.00000

G1 F1200 X51.93 Y118.33 E0.00615

G1 X52.72 Y118.11 E0.01987

 

 

Any ideas????

 

Greetzzzzz Cor

Regarding waiting for the bed daid said this on the 9th of December when I pointed it out:

"Bug in the firmware, I made a mistake and this swapped the "wait for heating" to "wait for cooldown" on the bed M190 command. I've fixed it for the next version. I've been running into the same problem with my Doodle3D experiments."

So it should hopefully be fixed soon. In the mean time you can manually heat the bed via the Maintenance menu. I usually start heating the bed when I sit down to do the slicing so it's close to hot when I want to start printing.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
