Printer stops at same point


Recommended Posts

Posted · Printer stops at same point

I'm not sure when exactly this problem first occured, but I think it might have come with Cura 4.9.

My printer is printing perfectly, until it suddenly stops in the middle of a layer. After slicing the file multiple times and also changing the 3D-Model a little, it still always is the same layer it stops in. Neither does the display freeze, nor does the Printer cool down, it just stops in the middle of the inner wall. I already took a look at the G-Code, but can't find anything (not that I am a Pro in inspecting G-Codes...).

I am using an SD-Card, and also had the problem with a printed temperature tower which also stopped only a few layers before the end, alike here. The Temperature tower I was able to print without problems a couple times already, so the model itself is fine.

 

My next step now will be to downgrade to Cura 4.8 again, but in the meantime I would be very thankful if you got any advice or other solutions for me.

 

The G-Code is appended, here the Print stops at Z=13.80 in the inner wall.

When I try to stop the Print via the Display, it says stopping... but does not do anything, I suppose because the Printer waits to finish the current G-Code it is executing. So my thought was, that there might be a Code snippet which takes forever and therefor breaks the Print.

    gcode looks fine.  I looked for bad feedrates (which can print so slow you thing the printer is stopped) or unusual M codes (like M1 which pauses the printer).

     

    I would do a diff of the file on the SD card versus the "same" file on the hard drive to make sure it is not corrupted on the SD card.  That's all I can think of.

    Thanks for the idea! The File I uploaded was already from the SD-Card, so it at least seems like it was fine. I found the Problem: I was using an microSD-Card with adapter, and somehow this caused the problem (even if I don't know why exactly..).

    Now I just gotta find out how to mark this post as solved 😂

     

    Maybe change the title, and add " - solved" to it? Should be possible, I think.

    You didn't do the whole "solved" process.  Try the instructions again.  When you do it right there will be a large SOLVED word in a dark/obvious green ellipse before and on the same line as the topic title.

    All right.  I'll do it.  😞

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
