  1. I do have an idea, yes. 😉 But it is up to R&D and UM Testing to decide that a firmware version is stable and can be published. From that moment it does only take a few days maybe until your printer will indicate that the new firmware is available. The only thing I can say is that if things go as planned then we are closer to the next version than we are away from the last one.
  2. There is no legacy Cura version 15.0.x as the scheme for numbering was "year.month.counter". For 15.04 there were multiple versions which did not all come out in April 2015. I guess this must then be 15.04.6 😉 That was the latest legacy Cura version iirc.
  3. The BB core will likely clog. I recommend you wait with further "tests" until the next firmware is out. It will bring some significant changes especially for PVA in the Pro Bundle. Also please use bay F and E for PVA in printcore 2. If you do not have extremely new PVA also try to anneal the PVA and maybe cut of the last meter after a while not using it before the next print in order to minimize likelihood of breaking in the main feeder.
  4. Yes, it is the same firmware - currently 5.2.11.
  5. Yes, any preferred reseller should be able to provide new sliding blocks. As for instructions, there is a Video from FBRC8, which shows how to assemble the sliding blocks. Changing the block shells in-situ is possible but does not work that well as with removing the axes.
  6. That might be an explanation why you don't see them. However, this is where e.g. @nallath might want to step in.
  7. Depending on what print core you have mounted they might appear greyed out with a red exclamation mark symbol as they need the CC 0.6 printcore. Cura should send them automatically if you are connected to the printer through Digital Factory (network or cloud). And it will show you a small dialog at the bottom center (see attached picture). That happens after Cura startup. If it does not happen, something is broken in your Cura installation. The only way to get it running is afaik to "nuke" Cura, i.e. to clear all profiles and let Cura create a new installation. You can achieve this b
  8. The sync should happen automatically. Does it sync a newly downloaded material from the marketplace? When you test it, make sure the material is compatible with the UM3.
  9. The material is still linked to its origin material and therefore has the same UUID. You need to unlink it so it gets its own UUID. Only then it is uploaded to the printer.
  10. Just enable support generation. If you want more information about support settings and tools, check out the Ultimaker Curea support pages, e.g. https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360012612779-Support-settings
  11. Your topic title suggests you have a S3 to sell. However, the S3 was just introduced in fall 2019. Could it be it is an Ultimaker 3? Also, currency, your location / locations you could ship it to, some pictures and details about print core usage, etc. might help you finding a buyer.
  12. I think what @fieldOfView described was essentially the process Ultimaker went through when designing the Ultimaker S5. The electronics of the S5 are derived from designs that were originally on the Ultiboard of the Ultimaker 2+. The feeders are an improved version of the Ultimaker 2+ feeder (having a different lever and a filament sensor).
  13. Such requests already exist. E.g. https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/6072
  14. I can't give you a definitive answer as I'm not a dev. But it happened to me exactly the same way.
  15. With the print core cleaning wizard, yes. But you can also do manual cold pulls by adjusting temperature manually and then you can also use other filaments.
  16. No, due to the 6-to-1 junction in the material station feeding goes only in one direction. The feeders on the printer are responsible for continuously feeding material through the print cores while the prefeeders in the material station work in steps and make sure the main feeders always get enough filament.
  17. The filament runout sensors in the Material station are just before the prefeeder in the Material Station so the remaining filament can be retracted back into the Material Station compartment. As you realized there are about two meter of filament left which you can e.g. perfectly use for performing print core cleaning.
  18. The Ultimaker 3 (not S3) was indeed the last Ultimaker printer with open hardware. I would not expect the S line hardware to become open. May I ask what do you see as advantage of open hardware in a professional 3D printer?
  19. If it sticks then only a bit, depending on the geometry. ASA usually works fine with e.g. Ultimaker Breakaway material.
  20. Support Blocker blocks support, it does not erase it. That means you have to put the support blocker element over the overhang you don't want to have support generated for. From your picture I have the impression that the support blocker element is outside the print object which will not work. Please also check if support horizontal expansion is producing some unwanted support.
  21. A modifier mesh in Cura can achieve this temperature change (on the printer you are limited to +/-25 degC). You can combine it with a PauseatHeight instance for an easy spool change. But you have to fool the printer about the type of material, i.e. it has to be selected manually, e.g. as Generic PLA.
  22. Nylon ist milchig-trüb und hat nichts mit transparent zu tun. Die beste Transparenz erreicht man mit CPE+ Transparent wenn man es bei 260°C, 0.05mm Schichtdicke und einer 0.8mm Düse druckt (und die Parameter etwas variiert um die besten Ergebnisse aus dem jeweiligen Drucker herauszuholen). PC Transparent ist auch nicht so schlecht bezüglich Durchsichtigkeit.
  23. Cura will offer you a 0.2mm profile for this combination so that might indeed be the best choice.
  24. Yes, that might be the key. I was btw. referring to the material selection on the printer but looked it up on a S5.
  25. The CFF matrials are the generic Carbon Fiber Filled materials. Look out for "Color on Demand Generic". It's probably called like this. Btw. Is there a special reason why you put the PVA into print core 1 and the main material into printcore 2? While it is possible and should theoretically give the same result, you probably get slightly better results the other way round as this is what people usually test materials profiles with.
