Conflict errors, print cores not reaching temperature

Posted · Conflict errors, print cores not reaching temperature

I am suddenly getting conflict errors and a problem whereby the print core gets very close to the start temperature but hangs up until the printer comes up with the error attached. I have reloaded software and tried everything that I think will solve the problem. Not sure they are even linked. Sometimes all I need to do is abort and then try again and it works.


Unrelated I think but I am also getting G-code errors when I try to open a cura project I've saved previously.


These issues seemed to coincide with several things. A new laptop and using digital factory.


I have an S5

    Yeah that's an issue we've faced 3 times in the 3 past monthes, and it's irritating.


    One PrintCore that was just fine, did not work with this error after reinserting in its exact same slot : we did a little machine maintenance, including the change of the front fan, nothing was disconnected or damages, it was made by the reseller. Once plugged in back, even after multiple restart of the machine, it shown this error, while a direct monitoring of the printcore actually shown a temperature reaching 280+°C. The reseller took the printcore to diagnose it, no idea of the answer it but they replaced it for free, fortunately.


    2 weeks later, another error like this one, restart of the machine, went fine.


    @MariMakes do you have an idea about this ? It looks like a pretty "recent" issue, hope that it won't happen more and more.

    the only error I see is the printcore takes too long to heat up, this can be caused by:

    • The heater of sensor being disconnected from the printcore.
    • a weird situation where a high temperature is requested and then a only slightly higher or lower, this can take long because the heating response will be slower as it's already almost at that temperature. E.G: have the initial temperature in the gcode header file be 300 degC and then having an M109 S305 in the gcode, this can cause the watchdog for that temperature change to time out. but this is after 10 minutes of waiting.  you can fix that with Cura settings.
    • a bug where a communication error happens right as the temperature is set, this can caused by be environment.

    The 1-2 does mean it's waiting for both hotends, so i could also be that the one hotend is working fine but the other one is not?

    I have finally sorted this problem out. Since I wasn't using core 2 at all I made the assumption that it would not be heated during the self levelling routine. Apparently the core needs to heat up to soften any plastic on the tip so that it does not give a false level (even though the core is is not being used so you wonder why this is) Replaced the faulty core 2 and all is good now. Thanks for the help.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
