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)

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
