Print now failing out on start

Hello! I have a problem with my Ultimaker 2 printer. IMG_20150514_124659.thumb.jpg.d53ece2df25c17be20f9be94e80aacad.jpg when I start printing. I've done everything I can think of including: releveling the bed 3 times, checking the tension bands are not on the gears weirdly (they aren't perfectly centered but they are not grinding), reseating the motor, adjusting the filament tension every which way to Sunday (I even tried it with the tension screw removed) and printing at different settings. This is the default robot, which normally prints fine. Has anyone seen this? I'd really love any suggestions.

thanks,

Phoenix

    Your printer is under extruding. This can be from either settings in cura or feeding issues.

    Does it feed material fine using move material?

    Try doing an Atomic Pull to clean the inside of the nozzle

    How old is the printer? If you have printed 500plus hours you may need to check your PTFE coupler.

    Make sure its gripping the filament properly and has clear dimples from the feeder.

      • 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
