Measuring temperature during printing


Recommended Posts

Posted · Measuring temperature during printing



After having elucidated many things, I came to the conclusion that I had one concern temperature during printing.


As described in another topic that is no longer valid, the temperature taking too long to be stabilized and occurs in after the start of printing.


This that has been resolved:

1 / The system for driving the filament. I change the spring and I find one that fits perfectly. There is a little shredding at the beginning of printing and this is definitely the problem of temperature.


2 / clogged nozzles. Again, if the temperature measurement was correct, the temperture of the nozzle would have remained constant and there would have been no cap. Now the filament flows well when printing started and the temperture stabilized.


3 / electrical outlet temperature sensor hotend was too loose. One of connection (white wire) was in touch by intermitance! I change the connector ... Now the room temperture is caught and fixed. If it is 20 ° C in the work area, the nozzle is 19 ° C ... There are currently more jumps in temperature.



I conducted the following test:

- Put the nozzle at 95 ° C and place a drop of water. The drop of water has struggling to evaporated.

- Put the nozzle at 105 ° C and place a drop of water. The drop of water evaporates quickly.


My current problem seems to be around a few points. It's suggestions and avenues to explore.

1 / The temperature seems wrong captured (electronic sampling?)

2 / heater nozzle is HS (Possible because at some point the temperature sensor not worked).

3 / Marlin is unable to set the temperature (either by precision error, or for reasons of sampling).

4 / The electronic control of the heating resistor of the nozzle was destroyed. (Possible but hotend heaters when it does not print ...)

5 / The power is not supplied sufficient current.


I invite you to watch a short video of an impression that I took with. Departing from the impression I encountered the new concern.




If everything is back in order so I can started printing. If this is not good, what does it take change?


My ticket stays open with Marrit and I advance slowly in my troubleshooting.


Thank you very much for your help and feedback.

      • 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
