Z-Axis not advancing

Posted · Z-Axis not advancing

Hello,

 

I have been trying to trouble shoot this Z-axis issue for this part; and after long hours and much frustration I have determined that the Z-axis is not advancing for this particular model. I Ran into this issue once before but I solved it by rotating the part 180 degrees. In this particular instance the geometry does not permit rotating the part to test if this would solve the issue. 

 

I am printing with Ultimaker PP. Its a part that I designed in SolidWorks (I haven't had issues with any other parts I made). I used cura 4.8.0 to slice the part, and it doesnt give me any errors when doing so. 

 

Is there some setting that I'm missing that disables the stepper motor as the print starts? The machine will go through its leveling process just fine but after the first layer the plate wont advance and after the print is aborted it will retract back to home position.

 

 

Thanks for any advice!

      • 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
