Big problem with S3


Recommended Posts

Posted · Big problem with S3

I am a professor of higher studies of mechatronics.
We have an Ultimaker S3 that has given problems from day one (LOTS OF PROBLEMS)
Almost every impression I have to be configuring the problems of heights and nozzles. (The official technical service never took charge)
I have 2 S3 in my private business and they are perfect.

Well, today my partner called me and found the glass of the bed on the floor and the extruders completely collapsed.

I had heard of problems like this when the material does not stick well to the bed, but in this case part of the piece is still on the bed (the glass is hard, it did not break from more than 1 meter to the ground.)

I have packed it to take it to the technical service, and wait for an invoice of a lot of $$$$.

But bad publicity for all my students who in the future will buy printers for their businesses when they see that the brand does not take care of a bad unit and does nothing about it.
the LOG of the machine will have millions of errors.

The impression materials were Ultimaker TOuch PLA and Ultimaker PVA, NEW!

I leave some photos so you can see the disaster.

Forgive my English, I'm from Barcelona. spain

      • 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.
