Posted · problem with build-plate

Hi, i have a problem with my printer, an Ultimaker2. The built-plate is 2cm far form the nozzle during the printing. I tried to adjust it in Maintenance->Build-Plate but when the monitor says "Rotate the button until the nuzzle is 1mm away from the buildplate" my buildplate is still 2 cm away from the nuzzle so that i cant adjust it correctly. It is like my buildplate loses the 0 position on the z axis. What can i do?

    The bed will always stop quite far away from the nozzle during the wizard. It's a safety margin so that it doesn't smash up into the head. Just rotate the menu knob to move the bed up. Or do you mean that you are rotating the menu knob and the bed isn't moving at all during the first step of the wizard?

      • 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
