Hi,
I use an UP! Plus printer and the software version 1.18
My problem is that the printer stops in the middle of the print job. Then I have only the possibility to Initial again the printer or to switch of the printer. When I start again the same job, the printer stops not at the same place.
Do somebody know what can be the reason

thanks in advance

Next time this happens, plug in your computer to the printer and open the Maintenance window to see if there's an error message displayed.

There's about a 75% chance it will say "Platform too hot." That means the platform heater cable is broken and you need to get a replacement. The platform isn't actually too hot, but the wire to the temperature sensor is failing and triggering a fail-safe condition.
