Save log files to USB

Often, the log files of a printer can contain valuable information to help troubleshoot and diagnose what went wrong within a printer. You may be asked by a support representative for log files of your machine.

Note, please follow these steps exactly:

  1. Export the log files to your USB stick
  2. On your computer, select all files that have been exported to the USB, that are not .gcode, .3mf or .stl files. (These are multiple files; .log, .log.gz, .tar.gz)
  3. ZIP the files and share the ZIP file with Ultimaker support

Tip: When an error has occurred on the printer while a USB stick is inserted, the log files are automatically saved to the USB drive. Please check the USB files first. Log files starting with  "ultimakersystem-" are some of the most important ones.
