ER61 - Resolution wizard causes Z-axis to drive beyond limits


Recommended Posts

Posted · ER61 - Resolution wizard causes Z-axis to drive beyond limits

ISSUE/BUG: Z-axis actuates to drive the bed down, even though the bed is already contacting the limit switch.  Stepper motor can be heard skipping steps as it continues to go down beyond physical limit.


WHEN: Only occurs following completion of the wizard for resolving ER61 (Material Station failed to unload material).  This has occurred in 2 of the 3 times that the error was generated.

It appears that this only occurs if the print bed is already contacting the Z-axis limit switch when ER6`1 is generated.  It remains in that location until the wizard steps are completed.  upon completion the z-axis immediately tries to travel further down, beyond physical limits.


NOTE: I've gotten ER61 3-4 times now, due to trying to print Igus i180 with the generic Nylon profile (since the igus profile is not material station compatible).

*I'm using the S5 Pro Bundle with Firmware

    Thanks @bvsengineering for reporting this, I'll add the bug to the backlog and have a look. Will update when I know more!


    The switches are only actively used when homing... That has been the case since the UM2 and it does occasionally make printers create horrible noises like this 😞.

      • 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
