Have tried printing another item - a knob about 25mm diam.
Saved the gcode, edited the printing temperature in line 65 again, saved, then loaded the gcode file.
Starts printing apparently normally, prints the skirt and a couple of layers of the knob, then just stops. No console message. No error message. No movement of the print head.
Clicking Pause then Resume does nothing.
I’m giving up for the moment. I have NO idea what’s going on, either with the temperature, or with the printer stopping.
I thought perhaps I’d truncated the gcode file when editing in Notepad++ but that appears not to be the case.
I’ve checked that the gcode file appears complete (here are the last few lines of the file):
M84 ; disable steppers
G90 ; absolute positioning
M117 Print Complete. ; print complete message
M82 ;absolute extrusion mode
;End of Gcode
I wonder if it would help to delete all of the installation and any customised files and start a clean install of v3.6.40?
I have noted the Z-offset and Esteps values that seemed to work well before things went wrong.
Where are my customised files stored on Wn 10?
I have no other ideas myself of what has gone wrong, why my working settings suddenly changed and won’t change back.
Nor why the printer just stopped on the last couple of print attempts.
It hasn’t lost connection.
The computer hasn’t powered down (no power saving setting to do that).
I didn’t click the Pause or Abort Print buttons by accident.
I didn’t jiggle the USB lead to disconnect it.
