This is a strange one. build plate cooling while printing and print stopping.


Recommended Posts

Posted · This is a strange one. build plate cooling while printing and print stopping.

So I'm new to 3D printing. I recently bought an Ender 5 plus, I have been having fun tuning the printer and making designs. When I print I have the printer connected to my computer. I use cura. I decided to print a tolerance test (my first long print) but my computer went into sleep mode while printing and the print stopped. I canceled print, cleaned up, changed sleep settings on my computer and started over. it printed for much longer but ended up randomly stopping again. computer did not sleep this time. So i cleaned up and started the same print again but from SD card but every time i print from the SD card the hot bed cools to ambient temperature after first few layers and the print comes loose and fails. the bed only cools when printing from SD, it stays hot for the whole print when printing from the computer . i can't figure it out!!

    Turn eco mode is off in the temp settings. I don't have a ender 5 so i don't know where the settings is but google it and you should find it. Hope that helps! Printing from usb is not very reliable for any 3d printer. SD card is the way to go or you can get octoprint.

      • 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
