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.

    • 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.
