Our office just recently received our Ultimaker 2 and I am the lucky fella that gets to play with the Ultimaker2.

I immediately upgraded the firmware and believe that I am on the most recent, if there hasn't been a new release in the last 2 or three weeks. (As of April 24, 2015)

On more than one occasion, the display screen and controller has frozen. In fact, it has just done it 2 times in a matter of minutes. First when I was advancing material getting ready to do a print. I was using the move material function and dialled too quickly causing the familiar "tocking" noise of too quickly advancing the filament when the screen froze... no controls. I reset by switching off and on again.

Next, I started a print and had just adjusted the build plate temperature after the first layer was done and was in the middle of adjusting the nozzle temp back down to 210 when the screen and control froze again.

The print is proceeding normally an I am assuming that it will be fine until then.

I am wondering if anyone else has experienced regular crashes of the display screen and controller. I have tried searching the new forums but am totally befuddled by the format and search.

    It may be worth repeating the firmware update, maybe something went wrong ?

    also a "factory reset" is worth a try

    if that does not fix it then I would log an urgent support ticket - this is definitely not normal behaviour

    good luck

    Excellent, I will give it a try after I print the important pieces for work that are on the bed right now.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
