MAXTEMP and MINTEMP Errors, Cura and Marlin


Recommended Posts

Posted · MAXTEMP and MINTEMP Errors, Cura and Marlin

I am not 10 kg of PLA into the ultimaker. I am using Cura4 with a Mac and a PC and I getting the same result. This issue just started yesterday, and the only thng that has changed is the day.

Win 7 SP1

SL Mac OSX

Cura4

Ultimaker

The first thing that happens is I am told that a "MinTemp" error has happened and I can not start the extruder.... So I warm it up.

The temperatures "jumps backward from 241 deg C to 236 deg C" when I start printing.

The temp then warms up to print. It starts, the I get a "MAXTEMP" error.

Is Cura reporting the temperature or is Marlin?

Is Cura and/or Marlin providing the "MAXTEMP" and "MINTEMP" errors and halting the extruder?

M999 does not reset the error. Clearing the error requires a "Reset" first connected to the printer, and another "Reset" not connected too the printer AND the Monitor printer box to be check in "PrintRun"

Any and all suggestions are welcome. Again, this just started yesterday after 10 glorious kg of PLA printing fun with my UM.

Slicer gCode does the same thing with PrintRun..........

Thank you,

Art

    An MAXTEMP or MINTEMP error indicate a problem with your temperature sensor, you need to check if all wires are properly connected. Especially the red/yellow wire, if they are screwed in tightly.

    It's something the firmware checks, not Cura.

    Daid,

    I set my note out before I read the other threads, and some of the other suggestions to trouble shoot this particular anomaly.

    I did not do any of it until after I had tested with RepG v 25 Beta Skeinforge 35 Ultimaker Advised 5D v1.0 firmware and the failsafe slicing option for the ultimaker. I did print repeatedly without error. I printed with Mac OSX SL and Windows 7. I have a Ubuntu setup but did not test that.

    Testing went like this:

    Cura 4 Mac OSX == Problem

    RepG 25 Win7 == Working

    Cura 4 Win7 == Problem

    RepG 25 Win7 == Working

    RepG 25 OSX == working

    Cura 4 Max OSX == Problem

    Cura 4 Mac OSX == Problem

    RepG 25 Mac OSX == Working

    RepG 25 Win7 == Working

    Cura 4 Win7 == Problem

    Cura 4 Win7 == Problem

    For Cura Testing I use the complete package that came with v4, Slicing with Cura and Printing with PrintRun. Firmware loaded with the Cura Update Tool

    For RepG 25 Testing I use RepG to slice and build/print. Firmware Loaded out of RepG

    What I did not test was Cura2 or Cura3. I will try that tomorrow. From the information that was in the other posts, I do have the Blue LED and the electrical tests seem to be as you have stated. Again, I did not make any changes to the wiring or inspect it before my tests. I will get everthing back together in the morning and test again with Cura2, Cura3, RepG 25 and Cura4. I am going to confine the test to Mac OSX. This just takes a lot of time and the results for me have been identical between Mac OSX and Win7.

    If there is something spacific you want me to look at or try, please do not hesitate to ask.

    BTW, I am quite capable of flying my Ultimaker into the ground from my keyboard. If there is something I am doing "dumb" please do not hesitate to poke me in the bad eye.......

    Regards,

    A

    The firmware supplied with RepG25 does not have the temperature sensor protection features, so that's why it "works" with those versions.

    Thank you.....

    The combination I am now using that works is the Marlin RC2 from RepG Loaded in my UM and Cura4. This works without the errors or the temp variations.

    Do you know if the Marlin firmware in RepG is the same Marlin released with Cura4 or is there a marlin where the Temperature senor protection feature is not implemented? Are there RepG and Cura code branches for Merlin?

    Regards,

    The Marlins in RepG are generally slightly older then those found in Cura. The Marlins found in RepG24 are very old. But the Marlin found in RepG34 will function very good without problems.

    I think this is the Marlin branch for Ultimaker:

    I did load the firmware out of #34. It works just fine, however, does it have TempSensorProtectiion Feature? This version of Marlin does not trigger the error?

    What I am trying to figure out here is if my hardware needs to be replaced .... before I burn my humble surroundings to the ground by accident. The other thing is, I LOVE the results I get with Cura and its include Marlin.

    This, the UM bursting into flame) is something I do not expect to happen and we have more of a chance of doing that with the iron than anything else we own......

    I get it that the RC4 Package is complete and fully functional, I guess what I really am trying to get back to is endless hours of uninterrupted printing again, without errors. I am more interested in resolving this challenge than patching it over.

    Thanks,

    A

    As far as I can see the Marlin from RepG34 should also have the temperature sensor protection (MINTEMP/MAXTEMP) so I have no idea why it does work with that firmware, and not with the Cura firmware...

    The 12.07 released yesterday has a newer firmware then RC4, so you could see if that makes a difference. It also auto-detects the baudrate, so it's easier to use with the RepG34 firmware.

    Thank you for your support of the Ultimaker!

    I now have the latest version working on the Windows 7, XP and machine and Linux. It is my understanding that you do not develop on a Mac, so it has be quite silly getting things to work on a platform you are blind to. I have downloaded Cura 12xx, and installed the Merlin firmware with Cura, did the system checks and the filimate calibration, sliced and loaded the file to Printrun and the hit the "print".

    What I have listed below is the error I receive on the High Temp Error. "This now only happens on the Mac". This does not happen on any other platform I have. I have attached the errors detail to the end of this message. Again, this "DOES NOT" happen on my Win 7, XP or Linux setups.

    I did follow the install instruction for OSX Snow Leopard 10.6.8. Prior to this install OSX Cura and Print run worked until .... well this adventure.

    Have I driven the keyboard off the trax or is there a course correction?
