Posted · How to determine the location where the 3D printer stopped feeding material.

 I need assistance with my Ultimaker2 printer. I had about 3 hours left on a 40 hour print and the feeder cylinder on the stepper motor came off. I was away from the printer when this happen and when I came back the nozzle was about .5 inches above the plastic part. I paused the printer and would like to know how I can go back and pick up where it left off. Is there a way to access the NC code from the printer? What options do i have? 

Is there something in Cura that will help?

 

Any feedback is appreciated. 

Thank you.

    I have another problem with the print. It started okay but about 3/4 of the way, the print started to distort and was no longer uniform. Even the color is lighter. Any thoughts?

    The second part shows a lot of under-extrusion.  Since the lighter area isn't near as dense it shows as a lighter color.

    I always ask myself "What's the last thing I did?".  If it was that brass driver then check the set screw again.

    There is also the ever popular "partial clog" in the nozzle to consider.  Something interfered with the filament flow, and it started all at once.

      • 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
