Print head access panel opens whenever 2nd nozzle is engaged.

Hi @wscheivink sorry to see you are having problems. 

 

From the video it is hard to tell what is going wrong.

  • Could you try to reinsert the second printcore? Perhaps it is not fully inserted.
  • When the second printcore is lowered, do you feel a particular spot where the cover is hitting the printcore? 

 

Best regards,

 

Jos

    I haven't seen this exact issue but I have seen covers that pop open pretty easily.

     

    1) One thought - try prying out the magets in the door slightly.  They should hold much better

    2) I wonder if the curved part of the core is hitting the metal plate in the door that controls airflow.  Maybe that metal plate needs to be repositioned slightly.  I think you can loosen two screws and readjust but I'm not very familiar with this.

    I've tried this with several different printcores and they all cause this problem even when they are fully inserted.

    The cover is not hitting the print core, the nozzle is correctly seated in the silicone brim as well.

    Well I had a similar problem and prying out the magnets just 1mm increased the strength of the door by about 10X.  I did this quite a few years ago and my door has been fine ever since (never pops open when it shouldn't).

      • 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
