Posted · stop printing after printed 3 models

Hi all,

I am excited to get a new Ultimaker 2 back home. I printed 3 models so far and still doing the fine tune for the bottom layer. The bottom layer is very coarse now, but other layers are pretty good. (i am using z resolution of 0.02mm and bottom layer with 1mm)

Last night i met a problem. After i start a 40 min job, i went back to sleep, but this morning there is nothing on the plate, the LCD shows jobs done. Is the nozzle been blocked? Anyone have seen this problem before?

    Probably clogged nozzle. For example sometimes the filament gets stuck inside the head when you first load it (never once it starts extruding). It might get stuck on the edge of something in there.

    Or dust. Or cat hair or other stuff.

    Also if you let the nozzle sit at 240C or hotter for a long time without extruding the plastic in the nozzle tends to caramelize into brown gunk.

    You might have to burn it all out but I recommend trying the atomic method first if it's not extruding anymore:

    Try to heat up the nozzle so evey filament in the machine get melted, then remove nozzle clean eat, look if there is any parts that needs to be cleaned or may be a object that jam your material, if so adjust it correctly.

      • 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
