wrong default gantry height UM2 ?

Posted · wrong default gantry height UM2 ?

Just had a part knocked over, loud noise scared the shit out of me!

had a look, gantry height in Cura is 55mm.

I think this is the deafult as I did not change it, and its the same on my laptop.

It is wrong.

My part was 53mm, my actual gantry is 50mm.

Made so much noise I wonder if my xy axes are still straight :mad:

53mm gantry 55 Mm   knockover

    Think it's wise in this case to figure out a way to change it, or at least warn users about it, maybe on the splash screen during install ?

    If I run multiple versions whats the easiest way to change to 48mm in all ?

    Well, the first 500 UM2s shipped did have 55mm gantry height (and 10mm less printing height). So forcing it to change would also be wrong.

    Easiest would be to go trough all the configurations, sorry.

    for me it's fine, but as the wrong setup can do real damage to your machine proactive informing users would be a good idea IMHO, or has this been done and did I overlook something ?

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
