Print stops for no apparent reason

Recommended Posts

Posted · Print stops for no apparent reason

We have had this happen twice now. A print is running along fat, dumb and happy, then it simply quits. Never after 5 minutes, no, usually after about an hour and a half.

Looking at the Output.Txt, the lst few lines look like this:

AttributeError: 'printWindowBasic' object has no attribute '_addTermLog'

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_14.09\python\lib\site-packages\wx-2.8-msw-unicode\wx\_core.py", line 14660, in <lambda>

lambda event: event.callable(*event.args, **event.kw) )

File "Cura\gui\printWindow.py", line 431, in __doPrinterConnectionUpdate

self._addTermLog('< %s\n' % (extraInfo))

AttributeError: 'printWindowBasic' object has no attribute '_addTermLog'

['changeZ', '0']

['changeZ', '0']

['changeZ', '1']

['changeZ', '1']

['changeZ', '1']

['changeZ', '1']

['changeZ', '2']

['cha

 

Yup. It just quit mid "changeZ". Does this give anyone a clue as to what happened? I'm also curious about the attribut error. This error appears through out the entire log file, even within successful prints.

Thanks.

I recommend you create the gcode with Cura and then use pronterface/printrun. I have no idea what that log might be saying but the UMO and UM2 don't do to well with USB printing. In fact it's not officially supported on UM2. And I assume RigidBot has Marlin and uses arduino. So I recommend trying a different program to send the data (gcode). Also consider trying a different USB cable and a different computer. Or add a USB buffer of some sort to boost the signal. Or run the USB cable in a different path (away from EM interference - away from electronics and fluorescent lights).

I've also been having trouble with Cura failing to finish writing the Gcode completely. It's hard to pin point the exact circumstances it's happening under, though.

This is a bug with the current release of Cura and USB printing. There is a fix in the latest RC, however, I do not guarantee that USB printing is stable. (There have been general problems with driver stability, which is why the UM2 does not support USB printing by default)
