Print job not starting (Intermittent)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm having an issue with my utilimaker2 where the printer does not reliably start print jobs.

Symptoms:

 

  • The printer completes its heating cycle and enters into the printing phase but (intermittently) hangs up (with 6 hrs print time indicated) and wont start the print job. The printer is not frozen as the print can be abborted and restarted via the navigation wheel.
  • Once the printer is running properly, multiple print jobs can be completed with no problem.

workarounds:

 

  • Power cycling the printer works periodicley, however only solves the problem 10-25% of the time.

troubleshooting:

 

  • Multiple STL files on multiple computers using the official Cura software produce the same results.

Possible issues

 

  • SD card? (investigating)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
