  1. With firmware 6.1 we’re bringing static IP, an upgraded OS and more features to all S-line printers. Let’s dive right into it! Network and security improvements. Upgraded operating system Since the release of firmware 6.0, Ultimaker S-line 3D printers have been upgraded from the Linux Debian Jessie distribution to Linux Debian Buster distribution. This new OS comes with some security improvements and we believe it elevates our existing firmware to be more future-proof and allowing for a more secure 3D print environment. Important: Due to the upgrade in

  2. Nice! Do you have an undercarriage with electronics and motor already? Anyway, here's a print from my side. It's actually one print. Wooden parts: 0.8mm PLA with Natural Wood "Metal" parts: .25 nozzle, Tough PLA. All the parts were printed on one S5 plate with dual extrusion. So you basically print a DIY model kit. It's 12cm long like this. 🙂

  5. You have a few features to enable/disable here to improve the view. First of all you should zoom in (scroll wheel) and pan (hold down shift key, right click drag). across the top of the screen look for "color scheme". First try "filament". I think that's what you have it set on in the lower photo. You can change the filament color by loading different colors in the PREPARE screen and reslicing. Then in "color scheme" try "line type". I know you don't like that but it's very useful. Yes the outer layer is red and very dark. You can scroll through all the layers -

  6. Hotfix 6.1.1 is on the way for the issue we've identified, pending tests and approval. In some rare cases corrupted material profile files where giving problems and a small change in python's xml.etree.ElementTree library meant this caused the application not to start up. As a workaround you can turn off Cura and "reset all printer settings" in the settings menu before upgrading, that will allow you to install the 6.1.0 without the current problem. In the mean time if you have already gotten stuck at the logo screen, please open a support ticket as @SandervG said! Use the 6.1.0 recov

  8. Hello, thank you for all the comments here. I'm sure we'll be able to help all of you. A procedure exists that allows you to recover your printer when it stalls during the installation of new firmware, hopefully this takes some worries away. This is available both in and out of warranty.

  10. I also have ubuntu and an S5 but I don't login and I don't use profiles. Here's what I do: Instead of the "profile" way of storing your settings I feel I have a better way called the "project" way. Everytime I slice anything I save the ufp (or gcode) file to the work folder where the STL is and I also do "file" "save". This saves the project file. It's like a profile but better. It saves the machine settings, the STL(s) and how the STL's are positioned. It saves which profile you are using (I only use ones that come with cura) and it saves your overrides of the settings.

  16. I believe I found a use for "Mesh Fixes | Remove all Holes". The back legs aren't on the build surface and require support. I randomly set it to 10% scale because it came in sized for a Jolly Green Giant. Sinking it into the build plate 2mm worked to flatten the bottom. I'd use a brim because the contact patches of the rear legs is pretty small for the lean angle they end up at before they merge into the rest.

  17. Hello everyone, We don't often release an alpha version of Ultimaker Cura... So what's different this time? Well, this Ultimaker Cura alpha contains such a huge slicing engine overhaul that we really need your help! We want to give users the chance to test this early release as soon as possible. Your feedback is vital to help us release the very best stable version of Ultimaker Cura in 2021. So what's the big change? The Ultimaker Cura slicing algorithm is enhanced with the Arachne code library. This fundamentally changes how Ultimaker Cu

  18. Try re-formatting the SD card and blow out the card slot in the printer. Have you ever used Cura to send a print over the USB? If you have, and you know the computer and printer can communicate, then you can hook it up to the computer, start Cura, load a gcode file (or slice something) and go to the Monitor screen. Try sending G28 from Cura and see if it the printer homes. If that stuff doesn't work you can try sending M502. That will do a full reset back to factory defaults. You will lose your Home Offsets and Steps/mm calibration stuff. You should be able to get those from the pri

Cura Projekt wäre da wohl Sinnvoll, allerdings ohne das Modell - da sind Lizensrechte drauf.... Höchstens es gibt Bsp. Parts öffentlich zum testen. Alles andere darfst nicht teilen... Gruß Digibike

  23. Yeah, in 4.6.1 with the "h" up almost all the lettering disappears. With the "h" down there are a couple letters missing. Fixing the model....hhmm. OK, I went to NetFab and had the model repaired. Here it is sliced in 4.8.0 with a .4 nozzle. Orientation doesn't matter. Everything is there. @Migael, the reason I asked if you buried the lettering into the model is that I do a lot of this and the surface I want the lettering on isn't always flat and may in fact be a compound curve. Sometimes I want the lettering to flow with the surface and not be planar on

  25. Some settings in Cura are a child of another setting; in the settings view they are "indented". As a general rule, if a setting has a child, only that child gets used by CuraEngine. The values for "Line Width" and "Wall Line Width" are not actually used by CuraEngine. Instead it only looks at "Outer Wall Line Width", "Inner Wall(s) Line Width", "Top/Bottom Line Width", "Infill Line Width" and "Skirt/Brim Line Width". The Line Width setting is there as a convenience to setting/affecting all the line widths in one go; by default the children of the Line Width setting

  26. My experience with CPE. After I finished the test PLA that came with my Ender 3 V2 I print only CPE - from two different producers and different colours. It took me almost one month to set the correct temperatures. 1. Here in the forum is described how to prepare the bed. In my case I cleaned the bare glass and sprayed it with hair spray - very light. That was before may be 16-17 prints. I haven't cleaned it or sprayed it again ever since. The models are sticking perfectly (I was surprised with the last as it is air plane tale without support, only raft). 2. Check

  27. Next to the "search" box at the top of the settings is an icon. Click on it and select "all" so unhide all the Cura settings. There are a lot of settings under "Support". One of them is an option called Support Placement. If "Touching Buildplate" is enabled then those gaps won't be supported. Change it to "everywhere" and the supports will show up. That is a fussy model. The small features on the ends of the legs would print best as your second photo shows. If the sides were parallel instead of at a small angle it would print best laying down with a support blocker over

  28. Hello to the Ultimaker community. I've just printed a mobile phone stand, as a small gift to my nephew. It's a very simple object, but it's so satisfying to look at, especially the silky-smooth surfaces and complete lack of blemishes and imperfections. No post-processing was required, apart from pulling out some piece of support material for an overhang region. Ultimaker S5, Prima Select Yellow PLA, Visual Profile / 0.15 mm Layer Height, Default settings everywhere / no adhesion / PLA supports, Printing time was around 8 hours. What a wonderful print

  29. Open %APPDATA%\cura\4.7\cura.cfg in a texteditor (eg notepad). In the [general] section, remove the lines starting with window_left and window_right Save the file and try starting Cura again. If that worked, go into the General preferences and uncheck the option to "Restore window position on start".

Instructions - Copy the text (except the instructions at the beginning) of this log file and paste it at the end of your EndG-code in the Machine Settings window of your printer - After that all your GCode files will have at the end a complete list of your current settings for each print here a picture of a few lines of the result Very useful if you want to compare settings with someone else Also if you are analysing results vs settings, just put them in a spreadsheet to focus on the changing parameters very easily Notice ther

Ich Drucke den ersten Layer bei 0,2 oder 0,25mm Darf ich Fragen bei welchem Drucker? Mit Automatischer Nivellierung oder händische. Wenn man es halt zu klein setzt kann man die Unebenheit in Glas, Ungenauigkeiten im Druckersystem nicht mehr ausgleichen. Bei kleinen Teilen merkt man es wahrscheinlich gar nicht, aber wenn man die komplette Plattform voll bedruckt sieht man normalerweise schon einen unterschied in dem ersten Layer stärke

  34. I managed to remove the filament. First, I drilled a hole of 1,2mm. It doesn't have to be that size, but close Then I put in a small screw and pulled. With the help of a thin fiber I had I checked and the path is now clear I had mounted and calibrated already a new core so I won't put this back, so I don't know if it works properly. In any case, here I leave this info in case it helps somebody cheers,

  36. So close!! You almost got it. You actually only have one issue. When it moves the filament from position E1297 to E640 it is moving back about 0.6 meters. That axis (E axis) has it's own speed limit and the move is supposed to be linearly such that it reaches it's X and Y position at the same time as it's new E position - hence it is moving the print head MUCH slower than usual. Anyway the fix is to tell the printer that we are now already at 640.51694 so it doesn't move backwards. So you need a G92 E command: G92 E640.1 Right after printing at

  37. Hey folks. I've got an Axiom dual, and used to have this problem, this thread is still the top search result so I figured I'd pitch in to help others out. I'm running decently well on this printer now. Airwolf listed a start and end code set for alternate slicers, but it's still got a couple problems. Most critical are that the temps used for auto-leveling are fixed values at 240, and Cura adds extruder temps before the Start Code. So the start code needs to be modified with material temp variables per extruder, and I prefer them to cool to the standby temp, not to 0 after auto-lev

  38. I'll keep pressing for that update to happen soon! Unfortunately this is not a Digital Factory issue, but the printer actually not having a distinct state for printing vs clearing the build plate (it only goes to 'finished' after clearing the build plate). I'll talk to the embedded systems team to see if they can introduce a new state for this.

  39. Foul...Foul. Torgeir you cheated. The line width rule was violated. You thought nobody would notice didn't you? Ha. I hereby declare myself the winner. Since we're talking airplane parts and since it took two days and four of us to figure it out, I think we should get the government (I don't care whose) to give us vast amounts of money for further development. We'll call it an F-35 Sopwith Inductatron. With a flashy name that nobody understands the potential market could be huge.

  40. Hello, Thank you for your message and I'm sorry to hear about your issue. It is important to realise that we, Ultimaker support and community moderators, are happy to support you in getting your printer back to work. But the instructions and especially the recovery image could become updated over time and to ensure everyone uses the correct files, and not make the problem worse, we prefer if they are not shared publicly. Do you have an issue? Ask us and we'll make sure you get the correct information. I'll send you a DM with the recovery image you need

  41. Hi Ronald, all UM3 printers have a white "Ulticontroller" board at the front side, a white "Electronics" board or mainboard, placed at the rear right, next to the power inlet and power switch, and the red "Olimex" board, placed at the rear left, next to the ethernet connector. For exact placement of the Olimex board refer to this helpful article, provides by @fbrc8-erin: https://ultimakernasupport.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115004235783-Olimex-Board (This article shows the procedure of excanging the Olimex board which is NOT necessary for firmware recovery, it's just t

  44. Yeah the "connect" is kind of bare bones. All the other Ultimaker printers let you feed them bare gcodes (UM2 series, UM2plus series, Um3, S3, S5), but not the UM2+ connect.

  46. Please add this feature - with a warning pop-up if necessary. I've just accidentally started a print in Cura (no warning pop-up here...) before finalizing print settings; I've aborted it straight away but nevertheless I now need to move my but to the printer's location (at work, and I'm at home) just to press a button (well - a touchscreen)... For a 5-6k $/€ printer (S5) that's a pretty huge annoyance.

  47. No one is saying that it is not possible to level it manually (if auto-level could be disabled). But people are (generally speaking) inherently lazy and often in a rush, so it is a matter of time before a manual level is skipped and a failed print + potential damage will be the result. Which is something we feel very passionate about to prevent. I disagree that it reflects a lack of trust from our end in our bed, we just rather ensure people having a good 3D printing experience. Not often, but sometimes this means taking a little bit of freedom away for the exchange of reliability

  48. This should be considered a bug. If I change materials and have gone to the trouble of entering temperatures for my materials, of course I want it to use the temperature I set for each different material. I definitely don't want to be printing PETG at 200C which is what nearly happened, and why I'm searching for answers right now.
