Error stopped - Temp sensor bed

Posted (edited) · Error stopped - Temp sensor bed

Hi

Tonight after a few weeks without any printing I switched from PLA back to ABS.

I then heated up the bed and initiated a new print. Once the bed and nozzle were at the right temp, the bed was raised to start printing.

But that's when things went wrong. As the bed was moving up it sounded like a missed step and I was instantly graced with a "Temp sensor bed" error.

I power cycled the printer and the print sensor seems to work and give credible figures.

Here's a video of the bed being raised and lowered. At 00:35 the weird sound can be heard (and again the printer goes in error mode). Surprisingly I've been able to lower/raise the bed a few times without problems. But most attempts (usually raising) fail with that weird noise.

 

Note: buzzing at 00:15 is unrelated to the printer . I just got a text on my smartphone...

Cables going to the bed seem fine and are out of the way when bed is travelling up or down.

Any idea where to look ?

Thanks

    I've come to think that it might indeed be a simple connection issue. I've wiggled the cable on the bed end and have been able to move the bed up/down multiple times and run a 1-hour print.

    The brief connection issue causes the printer to go into error mode. Maybe that brutal change somehow interrupts the code running the stepper motors for a few cycles hence what sounds like a missed step ?

    Anyway I'll try check the cable tonight a bit more carefully.

    Good to have the build manual. Thanks.

      • 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
