Prints suddenly stops, creates "nest"

Posted · Prints suddenly stops, creates "nest"

I've been using Cura for slicing, been tweaking a lot because it sometimes prints in the air.

Then I got this model and when I started printing it, machine suddely stops without prior notice and stays in place, creating a nest of plastic.

    If your printer is crashing in mid-print and freezing up, then I'd say it's most likely a problem with the hardware/firmware on your printer.

    The actual gcode that Cura generates is just a pretty straightforward collection of straight line print segments; it shouldn't cause a correctly functioning printer to behave like you are seeing.

    When I have this problem, it is usually due to power glitch,

    after switching the oven in the kitchen or power plugs with multiple extensions :-|

    But I do have my UM running with USB, I have the restart the PC and reconnect with Cura.

    Illuminarti:

    im beginning to think so. I will contact the company to see if they can send me previous firmware versions to try and re-installing in the printer.

    xeno: its running directly for SD card, and no, no items were being switched on or off during orinting, but its good to have that noted.

    Nallath: yes, I always right-click> eject SD card.

    Right now is either that problem from Cura, or not printing at all from a Simplify3D gcode. Very frustrating.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I had the same, 2,5 hours in my 2nd overnight 8 hour print :(

    I can;t think of a reason other than a corrupted file on the SD card. So I reloaded and removed safely. Will report tomorrow morning.

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
