Ultimaker loses heat.

Recommended Posts

I have a problem with my printer. It cools down at some random point.

Wich causes the printer to underextrude.

It goes from 220 to 190 and stay arount that.

Ive checked the cables but they look fine.

Anyone know what might cause that?

Do you have Ultimaker original? original+? Or UM2?

Does the display actually change to 190C? If so there is nothing wrong with the hardware and you probably have a plugin lowering the temperature - check for plugins in Cura. Or maybe you are having problems printing over USB cable? USB printing doesn't work great and may require you to try other cables, computers, USB buffers.

Or do you mean you tested the nozzle and it is at 190C even though the Ultimaker thinks it is at 220C?

Ultimaker original with heated bed upgrade.

Yes, the display changed. There are no wierd plugins, and i print using SD card.

I used the new version of cura and when i switched to a older one the problem was gone.

But i did nit find anything that might have caused it in cura itself.

But the problem is gone now. Thnx anyways :D

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
