Firmware has become unresponsive

Hey Guys,

I've been having trouble with my 3d printer recently. Within the first few layers, the simplify 3d command line on my computer will tell me that my printer's firmware has become unresponsive.

As a bit of background, I have a Type A Series 1 3d printer. I recently upgraded to a new G2 extruder following these instructions:

http://support.typeamachines.com/hc/en-us/articles/201509235-Upgrading-to-the-Winchester-G2-Extruder

It should be noted that as part of the upgrade, I had to upgrade the Marlin firmware for the RUMBA motion controller.

Has anyone else seen this issue? I have several theories:

1. My simplify 3d software is incompatible with the new Marlin firmware

2. Simplify 3d is creating corrupted .gcode files

3. There is a bug in the marlin firmware

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Austin

By the way, is there a way to attach a file in this forum so that I can include the .gcode file?

    Here's an important update:

    I ran an old .gcode file on my printer and it worked fine. This means that either Simplify 3d is producing corrupted files, or there is an incompatibility between Simplify 3d and the new Marlin firmware.

    Hi Austin,

    I dont know if your going to get much support here since you are not using Cura, not printing on an Ultimaker printer and I don't know if the Marlin version you are using is the same as the one we use on the Ultimakers.

    Can you try slicing your object with Cura? If the old S3D gcode worked maybe you changed something in the settings?

    You cant attach gcodes directly.

    To upload images you need to go in the Gallery (check the top left menu) first and upload in an album. Then you can click the MyMedia button in this text editor and you'll be able to pick the Gallery Image to insert in the post.

    We know... its a pain...

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
