Ultimaker Original Plus Speed Problem

Posted · Ultimaker Original Plus Speed Problem

Hello,

I have an Ultimaker Original Plus for almost two months, everithyng was fine until today.

I was trying to print a file that will take 36 hours to complete, I leave the machine alone for 8 hours and when i returned the printer was at 1% of the job, and printing very, veeeery slow.

When printing it makes some normal moves at normal speed, but in some points it slows too much

This is a screen shot of my settings:

The advance settings remain untouched.

I also want to mention two things, before I started the print I update Cura to 15.02.1 and re install the printer firmware, then I noticed that the save to SD was not present on the software interface, so I saved the model through the CRTL+S command, I noticed that took a little more time than usual to save the file, anyway when the print start to do there thing it was possible to here that the printer was a little bit quite than usual and a little red light was on and off under the printer.

So guys what do you thing could be the problem?

    Advance settings it's important since it can have speed different for outter inner infill. So check it. Unless it's at 0 the 'speed' it's specific for each 'finish'

    The % is always off in my opinion. I thought it was layer based. And your first layers take longer, are usually biger etc etc.

    Just let it finish and see how long it took :)

    Thanks Neotko,

    I checked the advance settings and reset all values to default and that correct the problem. But what did you mean by "speed it's specific for each finish"

    Sorry yeah I mean that the outter layer, inner layer, etc. if you set an outter layer slower your print will look better but inner layer use to affect too, but less. Etc etc. so you can print fast infill and slow outter layer to gain quality and speed and get a better ratio of speed/quality

      • 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
