mid print stop


Recommended Posts

Posted · mid print stop

Since i upgraded from cura 4.12 to 4.13 i've been experiencing my prints stopping in the middle. No clogs, no jams, no issues with filament passing through. I've researched and saw that it may be the SD card and when i've switched SD card i still get a print that stops midway.


When i look at my print information screen the file name disappears. I cannot resume or continue at this point and the only thing i can do is shut my printer off and start over.


I'm on a back 2017 monteray 12.1

printer is anycubic chiron just recently purchased (all belts and nozzle housing is tight/taught as it should be, gears are solid feeding extruder)

generic black PLA 200c nozzle and 60c bed (had it stop mid print)

silk gold PLA by giantarm 200-205c nozzle/ 60-70c bed (stops midprint)


i'm at a loss and when researching troubleshoots every one talks about jams and clogged nozzles but i've looked this over multiple times and no issues with extruder or filament coming through.


any help is greatly appreciated.

    Copy one of the "bad" gcode files off the SD card and post it here.

    A clog or jam will not stop the printer from continuing to process the gcode file.  The printer will continue on it's merry way, it just can't push plastic and typically the extruder motor will skip backwards because it can't go forward.  The noise is an unmistakable click-click-click from the extruder.
