UM2+ Extended- material overflow


Recommended Posts

Posted · UM2+ Extended- material overflow

Hi all,

I have an issue with my UM2+ extended printer. So, basically I left it over night and in the morning I saw something like this (picture).
Whole hot end was covered by melted filament. I had to use hot gun to melt it and take it off laver by layer. Once I finished the cleaning it work good, as before. But this overflowing issue happend in next few days again. Does someone of you had similar problem or have a sugestion what could be the reason of such a behaviour? I changed the to make sure it is clean, but it didnt help. I also did atomic method to clean it. Everything looks fine, but at some point it gets stucked...
Any advices would be appreciated.

    Was some part of the print you started still stuck to the bed when you found the printer like that or was the whole part stuck to the print head? If none of it was still on the buildplate one could assume that it has come loose from the bed during the print and gotten stuck to the print head instead, like Smithy said.


    Or if it doesn't look like it's caused by the print getting stuck to the print head it could be a leak where the nozzle is screwed on to the hotend, I've had issues with that before. I didn't have a torque wrench and was afraid to tighten the nozzle too much, so it ended up too loose instead and filament slowly started to leak out through the threads. But it doesn't look like that's the problem on the picture.


    You might have to keep an eye on the printer regularly instead of leaving it overnight to see if you can find out when the problem starts, or maybe set up a camera to film all your prints until it happens again.

        (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.
