Ultimaker 2+ turns off right after strting the pre heat/print

Posted · Ultimaker 2+ turns off right after strting the pre heat/print

when starting a print with the UM2+ from cold the machine doesn't start the print process but restarts the whole system. the bug occurs only with new gcodes; an old gcode, from about 4 weeks ago, works with no problem.

When I start with the old gcode, abort after a few minutes heating and start the new gcode it works fine, so this is a workaround.

I just updated the firmware thethe bug persists.

 

does anyone have a solution to this bug?

 

all the best 🙂

    So we have to inspect both an old an a new gcode file. The first ~50 lines of code from each will suffice. Please upload them somewhere and post a link (dropbox, google drive, wetransfer etc)

    The difference between the two is that in the old gcode, first the bed is fully heated up, and then the extruder. In the new gcode, the bed and extruder heat up at the same time. What is likely happening is that the power supply does does not have enough power to heat the bed and the extruder at the same time; keeping the bed or the extruder at a high temperature costs less power than heating up from cold. When the power supply "runs out of power", the printer electronics also get less than they need, causing the printer to reset.

     

    To be honest, I don't know why this was changed. Did you tweak the start gcode in Cura? If so, undo those changes.

     

    Edit: wait, is this even Cura gcode?

    I didn't do anything with the code. so far I did all the drawing and slicing with Fusion360 and didn't have any issues. I will try to find where is cane from and change it.

    However, thanks for the helping to find the bug, the explanation is simple and plausible. Great work!

    ok, I checked it, Cura-gcode works no problem...

      • 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
