    Nozzle not getting hot enough

    Hi
    Have anybody ever had problems with the temp on the nozzle going to abs temp..
    if i set the printer to print a model in abs. Then itís not getting hot enough to start printing.
    But when I check the temp on the nozzle itís no problem to get to 250..
    can this be a faulty firmware..?

    It would be odd for the system to kick back a good temperature reading and for it to be wrong. Normally ABS runs at 260C on CubePro unless printing solid when it backs off to 250C. Cube3 for instance runs ABS at 260C also although I normally get a 257C readback.

    Are you using 3DS filament?

    The other possibility is that there is buildup in the nozzle. I have not gone through the maintenance on these yet.

    The thing is.. when I test is with setting the heat manually it gets hot enough. But if I start a print.. then it starts heating.. but the heat indicated bar never go all the way.. so the print never starts.

    Oh, that makes a difference. You are saying the machine times out for not reaching temp. That does sound like something is not performing to the required specifications. Is this a single extruder CubePro or CubeX?

    I have not done maintenance on my nozzle yet. From what I understand there is a Teflon liner in the hot end. I know that 3DS materials leach some kind of heavy oil. What I am suggesting is that there may be buildup in the nozzle that needs cleaning for the heat to properly reach the filament. At the very least, this warrants inspection.
