Print stops saying nozzle temperature is too low.

Post by timmather » Mon 01 Dec , 2014 15:19 pm

On a quite large part, the UP now stops after creating the raft and bottom row of the print, saying that nozzle temperature is too low, but I have no independent way of making it heat the nozzle. I have tried it with the cooling fan flap open and closed. When closed, the part curls up off the bed i.e. doesn’t stick. When open, the job stops, as I’ve said above. Any clues???

You can monitor the temperatures if you open the maintenance button. Also make sure the ribbon cable & plugs are seated fully.

I had the maintenance box/screen open and was watching the temperature. The nozzle temp gradually fell to 91%, then it stopped saying nozzle temp too low. I couldn't see a way of heating it more?

To add to the above. Following this failure which was on a circular part about 80mm diameter, I ran a small part which worked perfectly. Is it to do with the heating of the platform only being in the middle?
