Prints suddenly stops, creates "nest"

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
