Ulticontroller "stop print"= restart problem

Recommended Posts


Couldn't find any post about this issue but just wondering if anyone else has experienced this event:

My settings:

Starting my Ultimaker up and printing from Ulticontroler SD card.

Sliced with Nettfabb (should use Cura I know!!! good job Daid! Just saw what it can do and it's getting better and better!)

Ultra q setting and fluff support

printing in PLA

What happens?! When loading a file from sd and starting the print, my Ultimaker prints and the print centers (like it should according to Nettfabb positions and origins) like it should. Sometimes the first layers don't stick very well... no problem I use my Ulticontroler and stop the print, home the head to origin. Go to the card menu, and restart my file again after cleaning the bed.

So far so good, the print starts again, but then after laying down the lines in the top right corner, and finishing it correctly (flow is going temp is 220 degree celcius) the head spurts to the front right corner and starts it's printing there... It completely ignores the center of the bed and tries printing a large object in a very narrow space... constantly hitting the endstops...

After shutting down the Ultimaker by switching it of and completely taking off the power by unplugging it what until the power is out of the adapter and then restarting it it usually works again...

Has anyone experienced this? does anyone know what causes it?

I wouldn't waste time or money on netfabb

it's installed on my machine for only one reason - it can fix broken stl files from 3rd party sources.

when Daid has that feature in Cura, I'll be so happy to hit the uninstall button on netfabb.

meanwhile, it's k'slicer for me I'm afraid. the difference in quality just blows you away.

    • "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.
