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...

      • 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.
