Hello people

By changing filament clogged the nozzle of my Ultimaker2.

I wanted to switch from Ultimaker (Silver) to Ultimaker (Transparent), since the first roll was empty.

I have to remove the clogged nozzle of Ultimaker2 and clean manually.

All other attempts did not help. Somehow I messed up and the temperature sensor is damaged, overheated.

Does anyone know by chance the sensor type or alternative sensors with matching case / sleeve (3.00 Milimeter). Is it a NTC or PTC resistor, or whatever?

Why am I so stupid?

I have this nozzle heated with a special lighter, and the sensor was mounted.

Does anyone have any idea?

You may laugh quietly when it is essential to have because. The nozzle is now completely clean ...

    Dont worry!

    First when your nozzle is clogged. you 99% of the time do not need to remove your nozzle !! absolutly not !!

    please read this:

    http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/3600-what-works-best-with-cleaning-an-ultimaker-hotend-nozzle/

    Secondly. If you have broken your temp sensor.. I would recomment you buy a new one from ultimaker. It is better safe than sorry and if you bought a replacement from ebay or china for a better price... and your ultimaker has a big big problem in the night... then ...mmm... not good !

    So get yourself a new sensor !

    Ian :-)

    The UM2 is still relatively new and UM hasn't published all the details of how to build your own, yet (they plan to do this later this year). So I don't know what the temp sensor is. I guess one could probably figure it out by looking in the comments in configuration.h here:

    https://github.com/Ultimaker/SecretMarlin

     

    Let us know if you figure it out.

    Oh - also I deleted your other thread/topic for you.

    Thank you gr5

    First of all:

    Although many components of the RepRap scene are known, so I'm still convinced that the Ultimaker is a great machine. Since I'm sure, because the overall product is convincing. Specifically, the machine housing is fantastically well made and combines mechanical components in precision. The implementation for the linear axes is really awesome.

    Of course, I am surprised that the problems only began with the filament change. Before there were never problems.

    But I have an idea to avoid future nozzle clogging during the change of filament:

    Filament change is probably always carried out with the last selected temperature. And when it is previously printed at a very high speed, the preset temperature for the filament - exchange could be harmful. If the change process is not fast enough, then the print head is at times not entirely filled with filament and it could quickly arise combustion residues.

    So it would be good to always perform a filament change at very low temperature extruder. Just so warm that is reaches the melting temperature of the respective filament, no more.

    What do you think?

    I'll wait and see how the processing via the Ultimaker support precedes. So far, the contact runs fast and the communication is great.

    I forgot:

    Presumably, it is a normal NTC 100K, such as is used for many DIY printer. Only the thing is provided in a metal sleeve and the cable with a Teflon sheath. Possibly could have someone measure the resistance value of its non-connected sensor at about 20 degrees room temperature for me?

    Already many hours before I was notified of Ultimaker. My spare part is prepared for shipment. And I suppose I must not pay, although I have caused the damage through carelessness. I am so unspeakably happy ...

    Yes. Filament change is best done at 180C for PLA.

    Actually, the firmare of UM2 should prevent the filament change at high temperatures and give at least a warning.

    According to the comments in the firmware, it's a PT100 RTD temperature sensor. Folks in other threads have measured its resistance at around 108 Ohms at room temp, as would be expected with the standard approx 0.38 ohms/ºC ratio from 100 = 0ºC.

    Great, that helps :smile:

    The weekend is coming and let's see what I can do there.

      • 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.
