UM2 - occasional violent build bed vibrate on print initiate

Tue Jan 06, 2015 3:14 pm

Hi all,

Recently started using S3D with my Ultimaker 2 and so far impressed with surface finish (i wasnt so impressed with Cura's surface finish - hence trying S3D).

The only strange issue i occasionally have is as title says - on print initiate. The UM 2 screen says the S3d will over-ride the printer settings or something similar - i press okay and occasionally i get a really violent bed vibrate for a second or so? Normally, if i cancel the print and try again all is fine.

I'm just wondering if anyone else has had same experience, and what can be done. i dont want to damage the printer.

Any help much appreciated

If the problem is intermittent and sometimes a gcode file will print and sometimes the same gcode file will cause this issue, I would suspect it's a firmware issue.
