  1. There is a drying unit based on dessiccant that is regenerated regularly inside the Material Station. You do only see the exhaust on the back and a small opening inside filament compartment.

    Best thing you probably can do is to put a small hygrometer inside the compartment. You should see humidity drop within minutes (unless your enviroment is already very dry).

    ich mach für Mutter gleich immer 0,2 mm mehr im Modell dann weiß ich das es passt


    Das nennt sich dann ja Design for (additive) Manufacturing. Analog geht man ja auch bei anderen Kunststoff-Formungsverfahren vor, z.B. bei der Konstruktion von Werkzeugen für den Spritzguss.

  3. First, check if there are logs on that USB stick written last night. If so, save them somewhere; they might become handy.

    For how long did you power the machine off? 30 seconds is probably enough but in case you want to do it again, let it off for 5 minutes or so.

    If you have no success, repeat it with both printcores and the spool holder connector (NFC) removed.

    If it is still stuck at the same point, there is not much you can do and you should contact your reseller.

  4. Was man beim Air Manager hört ist der Luftstrom durch den Filter. Beim Lüfter selbst wurde ein sehr leises Produkt verbaut das man aus dem PC-Bereich kennt.

    Es gibt die Möglichkeit, eine Abluftleitung direkt via druckbaren Flanschanschluss an den Air Manager anzuschliessen; entsprechende Montagelöcher in der Haube sind vorhanden und Schrauben liegen bei. Einen kürzeren Schlauch oder Bogen mit Durchmesser 15cm o.ä. da anzuschliessen könnte durchaus eine signifikante Beruhigung mit sich bringen. Hier ist allerdings streng darauf zu achten, dass eine angeschlossene Vorrichtung nicht den Luftstrom signifikant behindert; sonst wird's eher lauter.

  5. Sich an die Anleitung zu halten ist generell eine gute Idee. 😉


    Der Erstinbetriebnahmeassistent kann durch Drücken auf das X rechts oben abgebrochen werden. Einzelne Schritte davon können ev. nicht abgebrochen werden. Vor dem Laden des Materials z.B. wäre ein guter Zeitpunkt.

    The problem is in the generated GCode, WTF are you are trying to do here:


    M109 S205

    M104 T0 S210


    You change the temp to be at least  205, then wait for it to be 210. 


    M109 waits for the sensor to reach the desired temperature, M104 does not. That can be easily checked e.g. here: https://reprap.org/wiki/G-code#M109:_Set_Extruder_Temperature_and_Wait So it's the other way round and the gcode is fine there.


    Also please be aware that third party printer profiles are contributed by community members and Ultimaker will probably only fix such profiles when a corresponding pull request on Github is made.


  7. I would strongly advise not to open the Material Station yourself at this point. You might be well able to solve the problem yourself and reassemble the device correctly but as it is a new product any issue popping up should be handled by official channels in order to get the feedback to wherever it is needed to improve / optimize things.

  8. Third party material profiles have to be modified by the manufacturer for usage of their materials in the Material Station. The important feature for this modification is the depriming. It has to happen in such a way that no strings or small filament parts can be lost on the way out and block the way for the next material. Therefore it has to be thoroughly tested and this needs some time. Afaik brands are working on these modifications.

    This being said making your own profile for a third party material is of course possible. But you have to make sure that the depriming works flawless or you will probably face consequences which are outside warranty.

    If new independent profiles are not sent to the printer, the problem usually is with Cura. Clearing the configuration folder and letting Cura re-initialize itself usually helps. You can also try to restore a known-good Cura backup.

    Print a little tower in the build plate instead of extruding into the room.


    That is not possible. The printer does not know when the actual extrusion exactly sfarts. Also the two materials (old and new one) might be completely incompatible. The result would lilely be a mess ON the print bed.
