UM3 calibration issues


Recommended Posts

Posted · UM3 calibration issues

Hi so i've been successfully printing (pretty much since print 1) with my ultimaker, quite intensly for a couple of weeks.
Then i stopped using for a while, simply unplugged (with filament left in), and parked.

Today, after a bit (4-5 weeks) i switched on again and tried to print.
First thing i noticed is a slightly different sound and a somewhat slightly different autocalibration pattern.
Then i notice that, while it used to autocalibrate with the (unused) printcore 2, now it uses the first printcore to calibrate.
It also produces the print blob differently, making a much larger puddle in the beginning before starting to lower the bed.

And this is what i got out of it: https://imgur.com/a/eFAnxUl
It never happened to me before to see such corners lifting up.
The attempt in the picture was done using layer height 0.32, line width 0.32, print speed 40mm/s, temperature 207c.
I'm not sure if there's something i am doing wrong.
In the meanwhile i tried to unload the material, take out and in again the printcore1. i managed to get a decent print of a simple part, after,

but calibration still done with PC1, and the printer even complained once of too large difference between PC1 and PC2..

      • 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
