Printcore 2 mechanical Problem


Recommended Posts

Posted · Printcore 2 mechanical Problem

Hey guys I'm new to the forum, so hopefully this goes to the right place.

 

I have a problem that when I come into the office in the morning a 16hrs print of multiple components is destroyed basically.

The glass plate has shifted during the print and each part is obviously no longer complete, I am printing with only core 1 Black tough PLA.

What I notice is that Print core 2 is down, and the silicone rubber is pulled half off

This would also expalin why the glass plate has shifted, as the print core 2 would have caught onto a part while moving

Can some explain to me how this is possible as the head doesnt go back up to lower print core 2 during the printing process.

 

Cheers Peter

    Some guesswork:

     

    Was the print finished at this time or still running?

    I ask because printcore 2 will always be switched (back) down after a gcode file is finished.

     

    If the program was still running... i dunno.

     

    If you have pictures - just share. Usually this leads to more detailed answers from the community here.

    It sounds like one or more parts came loose from the buildplate at some time mid-print. Everything else may simply be a consequence of this. Always take sure that there is an excellent adhesion of all printed parts to the buildplate if the printer is meant to work unattended.

    It depends... 🙂

    For official support: always contact your reseller first. That's the way official Ultimaker support is organized (AFAIK).

     

    If you're looking for additional opinions, suggestions, discussions and tips from/with other users of Ultimaker products - this forum is the right place for you.

     

    If in doubt... do both! 🙂
