Only printed 25% of the model - why???

Recommended Posts

Can someone help me as I am new to 3D printing?

I am trying to print a model of a clavicle. On Cura before saving the gCode it says it would take 6 hours to print. When I put the SD card into the Ultimaker2 it again says it will take 6 hours. However the print stops after 1 1/2 hours and only 25% of the model is printed. Why would this happen?

If you don't get any specific error messages, perhaps your gcode file on the SD card is only partially written? You can't count on what the printer tells you timewise, this is always of by a magnitude.

I would try to save the file again and make sure you correctly remove the card from the PC (like if it is a mac or linux: unmount. on windows: safe remove).

    • 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.
