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

Recommended Posts

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

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).

Heard about this problem before, the computer had not finished writing the file to the SD card,

and the g-code file was not complete.

try saving it again to the SD card, and make sure it has finished saving :)

Did you always remove your SD card safely? This very much sounds like you didn't (and shows the reason why you should always safely remove SD cards!).

So 3 times the same answer... Guess there's little chance that it is something else then? :p

Nah it's just the most common mistake. People seem to think Daid put the remove function in because he likes to pesker people (He does like that, but thats not the reason ;))
