  1. wow, happy that you managed to get it to install. I will share this experience with the development team. Without logs or data there is only a limited amount of things we can do, but it is still good to share. Our apologies for the inconvenience. By the way, what was the final conclusion.. did you get an R1 or R2?
  2. Thank you for your response. I guess we're saying the same. Perhaps my framework of drawing the line between R1 and R2 left some room for R1 machines sold later, which would still qualify for a sale without a misconception of receiving an aluminum build plate. Which seems to be correct, since you mention in your first post you just stumbled upon this topic. Please let me know if I am seeing this wrong and we can obviously look towards a resolution. Have a great day,
  3. Well, joke or not it is the most obvious differentiator. If you have a robot it is R1, if it has a U it is R2.
  4. That is not entirely correct I think. It mostly depends on if you buy an Ultimaker S5 R1 or R2, which was released early this year. The rational is that we wanted to compensate our users who bought an Ultimaker S5 with the promise of the aluminum bed. Obviously, as soon as it became painfully clear we weren't going to be able to realise that we removed it from all marketing assets. So everyone has an accurate understanding of what it is they are buying. When we Ultimaker S5 R2 was released, some time passed where it was stripped from all marketing assets so we felt the compensation was no long
  5. ah, I thought it was about the overhangs. Not sure I even read the title, lol. Is it always at the same location? In that case I would check if the Z rod is not dirty or if there is anything that prevents a smooth motion.
  6. It is quite unique that it fell down completely. I recommend you get in touch with your reseller. It looks like the slider blocks that usually hold the axles came loose and lost grip. This can happen when the inside of the chamber collects too much heat, or when they have a production/material error and they break. If the latter even happens, it is usually only one. So all 4 breaking is quite unique. Unless you enclosed the entire frame, in that case I recommend you to be careful and be cautious of the internal temperature. Anyway, a reseller should be able to provide you with new slider block
  7. Thank you for sending those over! Let's not loose our sanity and look at each individually. Besides Jman15x there are also other users who have issues, but luckily there are plenty more users who have 0 issues and couldn't be happier. I rather focus on that, and help you join that side as soon as possible! 🙂
  8. Hi @Jman15x, Thank you for your message and putting the effort to collect all error messages and the links to the articles. I'm sorry to hear about the difficulties you are having with your Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle. When updating to a new firmware version triggers more error messages, it is not necessarily that the firmware is faulty. Sometimes error detection becomes more refined, which detects 'errors' that previously went undetected. Not to say that it renders your product immediately as broken, but it should help to pinpoint which areas might be performing sub-optimal.
  9. Hi @AHG, thank you for your message. Does it need to be printed vertically, or could they also be placed flat on the build plate? That would make things a lot easier! In its current shape, on the bottom of the disc you are dealing with an overhang and heat/cooling issues. The heat that is radiating from the build plate is keeping the filament from solidifying, and so are the layers that are printed on top of it with a hot nozzle before the previous layer has had a time to cool down. Have you tried printing a few discs at the same time with some decent space in between so the head travels
  10. Hi @VerveDesign, thank you for your message. We would need to see your log files to determine what is causing this bug. Obviously this is not intended behaviour. I would like to ask if you can share your log files with our product experts via this link: https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/requests/new You can get the log files via Settings > Maintenance > Diagnostics > Save log files to USB. I have informed our experts and they are waiting for your files. Thanks again and our apologies for the inconvenience of this rocky start!
  11. Are your printers hosting a larger group of printers, or is it a single unit? Are you on the latest firmware version? I believe a version of 3 ago we made quite an improvement towards better connectivity.
  12. Thank you for your time and patience. Sometimes it hangs at that point. If it is obvious it got stuck you can restart (but don't get too impatient). Let us know how it goes when you have tried again tomorrow!
  13. Hi, not by default but it is possible to achieve. Some materials are easier to get air-tight then others. Post processing can help, or using the correct settings. For example, TPU is a good material to get air-tight. Printing slower usually contributes to getting a model air tight.
  14. We are happy to share Ultimaker 4.8 Beta with you. It marks a new step in the evolution of Ultimaker and perhaps the world’s most used slicer. You can help to make it even better for yourself and all its users by taking part in this Beta and report your findings back with us. So, what new features can we share with you today? Arrange models has been improved. Until now, the arrange models feature didn’t always utilise the available bed space to its fullest, which made a lot of users arranging their models by themselves. An improved arrange models feature should provide you
  15. Hi @gpitts, thank you for writing a message here outlining your issues. Who is your service partner? Fbrc8 by chance? They are very knowledgable and offer excellent service. @fbrc8-erin even roams this forum occasionally. Last time you mentioned you were waiting on a new cable and your service partner was working with you on the error messages. If you need any specific help on certain issues, please let us know, like if any error messages remain to occur after installing a new cable. Thank you, keep us posted. Have a great day!
  16. Hello, could you look at these instructions and see if they help? Good luck!
  17. I don't think that is a correct summary of what ctbeke was saying. We are looking into security features, but only a password for the web would be just half a solution for everyone who doesn't have their printer locked up in a room. And having only half security is like no security at all. So instead, we are investing this security issue from a wider perspective, so hopefully it will deliver a solution to every user who needs more security. If you are suggesting our development team should develop every feature request we get from a user I don't you'll ever see a new product from
  18. yaay, points for the community! I think most accuracy settings can be dialed in by the slicer, but if there would be any difference the UMS3 might be a bit more accurate just because it is smaller, so it has less weight to move around. But most gains can probably achieved via Cura (and the tips you can get from our expert users in the community!). How tight are the tolerances that you are looking for? I have also tried that last model you tried on an Ultimaker, not sure if it was the UM3 or UMS5, but for me it failed because the bottom layer blended. Elephant's foot. When you
  19. Hi @ninjaltum thank you for posting this question here. There is a way we can help your Ultimaker S3 to help remember who he truly is, carry the S3 model with pride, without shipping it to your reseller (not sure if that is what they will suggest). Please let me know if you still have it in your possession and I will share the instructions with you. It is not complicated, you can place a file on your USB, insert it in the S3 and it should do the trick. Thanks,
  20. I believe heat and gas/chemicals are used to dissolve all the unwanted material. This requires additional equipment yes, quite expensive. There are companies that provide this as a service though if you are interested.
  21. Nah, I don't think that matters honestly. Unless there are reasons I am currently not aware of, you should be able to print ToughPla on an UM2+.
  22. And a good morning to you too! Awesome, congratulations! That must be an amazing feeling being able to hold your art. Something you can share with us already? 🙂 I'm curious!
  23. Hi @gpitts, thank you for your message. Sorry to hear it seems like you have run into some issues with your Ultimaker. A flooded head can be quite a hassle to recover from, depending from the size it might be better to replace parts than to recover. Sometimes if a part is slightly bent, you should be able to bent it back. By default this is not a good or bad practise, but it really depends on your situation. If consecutively you started having communication errors this might be a sign that the flooded head caused some more harm than 'we' initially thought. I trust you will be able to wor
  24. Hi @sensebellum, thank you for your message! Hopefully you will get a lot of input. Ah yes, the promise we regrettably couldn't fulfil on the Ultimaker 2. We still regret it to this day, and learned many lessons. Are you also looking for more print capacity or only to enable dual extrusion? Do you think you will use PVA mostly, or other support materials or build materials? Depending on your answers, the community at one point united and build this modification. It was very well received, but it does require modifications with the attached risks. So if reliability is high on your a
