Ultimaker 2 + Cura + Pronterface = print bed not raised when a print starts

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2 + Cura + Pronterface = print bed not raised when a print starts

Hi all,

 

With this config:

 

  • Ultimaker 2
  • Cura prepared gcode
  • print via Pronterface

I have this result: print bed not raised when a print starts, print bed stays at the bottom of the printer, the extruder starts moving around and prints in mid air.

 

How do you tell the software to first raise the z-axis (print bed) to the correct height?

 

Thanks!

I'm not sure as I haven't printed via USB on the Ultimaker2 (as it is not recommended) but I think you'll have to change your Gcode flavour to RepRap if you want to print via USB. You should be using the SD-card though, it's much better.

      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
