    But you should contact your reseller immediately.  I strongly suspect every reseller has seen every possible problem including this one.  I don't have the Material Station - just the plain S5.  But I've heard many people ask questions in this vein and the answer is very often: talk to your reseller.


    That is a very good advice. The reseller is always first choice to ask warranty questions. I cannot speak for other resellers or Ultimaker in terms of warranty. I can only refer to the warranty document by Ultimaker: https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011627400-Ultimaker-S-line-warranty

    1. I've added a Ziflex on the plate, but unfortunately I can't use my printer anymore because the calibration is only physical (using screws) and I've reach the end before teh right settings.


    Wow, how thick is that plate that pulling the bed down is not sufficient?


    @gr5 already gave the spot-on explanation for no. 2.

    3. The feature "Skip cooldown" introduces some bugs : If I change the material, then skip cooldown, and immediately start a print, it will hang forever on the "preparing" screen.


    Sounds like a bug. Please report it to your reseller so it can be passed on.

    4. How can I change settings while printing, like the printing speed ?


    I'm away from my UM2+ Connect atm, so can't check it. If there is no tune menu there yet, I imagine there will be and it will be more populated in future.

    5. I'd like to use my printer on my local network, without internet, how can I do that ?


    You can't and you will never been able to. It was advertized to be cloud-based right from the start.

    6. The open WiFi of the printer is always on, even after it's connected to my network, how can I disabled it ?


    You have the printer connected through Ethernet and it still has a WiFi enabled? That would sound like a bug too you might want to report through your reseller.

  3. Sorry to be a bit persistent: Does the same print core also still work with other materials after you printed the I180 with?
    As for the print core cleaning: did you use hot pulls or cold pulls? In case you used cold pulls: did you get a perfect mirror image of the inner print core geometry on the pulled filament?

  4. I assume you are talking about a network-connected Ultimaker printer - so it is actually a firmware thing, not a Cura thing.


    However, the S-line printers and also the Ultimaker 3 familiy have that behavior for good reasons. It is crucial, that the user confirms that the build plate is empty - doesn't matter if the print was aborted or properly finished. If it wouldn't stop at that point, it would continue with the next print job in the queue.


    As the internal camera does not show the complete build plate when the print bed is fully down, the only safe way to do this is to request that confirmation on the printer itself.


    There is one possible exception I see. When a print was aborted before any line was actually printed (could be a simple boolean flag in the firmware), aborting a printer could skip the removal-request.

  5. Yes, the Ultimaker 3 is not produced anymore. There might be some units left in the warehouses of distributors and resellers.

    Spare parts can be provided five years after a model is discontinued. That means you get spare parts but maybe you have to buy an assembly, i.e. more than just the parts you actually have to replace.
