Ender 3 not finishing prints

If you are printing via the SD card...

It may be that the SD card has developed corrupt memory addresses and when your operating system copies files to the SD card the ends of the files can't be read.  The memory cards that come from Creality are notorious for this.


Re-formatting the SD card will usually fix that.  If you have files on the SD that you want to keep, make sure you copy them to your hard drive before formatting.  The card needs to be FAT32 and a "quick format" should work.


If you are printing some other way (Octoprint or USB) then we would need to know.
