Nozzle cover loose-Ultimaker S3


Recommended Posts

Posted · Nozzle cover loose-Ultimaker S3

We replaced the nozzle cover a couple of weeks ago because half of it had sheared off somehow. I was able to install the new one, but it was loose at the sides.  I pushed in the center and bottom tags of the cover as far in as they would go. It stayed on when rubbing a finger on it and when lowering and raising print core 2.


The printer worked for a while, then the nozzle cover came off in the middle of the print. It also came up with a  core temperature error. 


I pored over the video and written instructions several times. Do you have any tips? The gaps on the sides seem way too large to hold the tags on the side, but it looks like the picture/video. I feel like I'm missing something.


See attached photos. 


thanks for any help you can provide, Andrea

        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.
