    Under extrusion after every layer change

    don't have access to CURA atm, but check for "retract at layers change" or something called similar and see if it helps to turn it off

    Display current layer number during printing

    Unfortunately this is broken for the UM3 and the S5; https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/3676

    ah @kmanstudios at it again! congratulations with another victory 👌
  4. I do the same, but (very obvious...) just be aware of the dock in the corner, you need to remove it ofc if you want to use that buildspace...

    load material length

    Sorry, no Idea how to change UM3 firmware, but for now why not just load/unload manually. I only load manually as its much faster, on UM3 and S5. For the UM3 this will save your fingers; https://www.youmagine.com/designs/wedgebot-for-ultimaker2

    Ultimaker S5 - Setup issues

    Do you have a picture of this 50mm misalignment ? Sounds to me like a hardware issue (loose pulley) and not an S3D issue. You may have the same issue as mike here;

    S5 - Prints skewed on X axis?

    He Mike, you probably have a loose pulley, it's fairly easy to fix with the screwdriver that's included with the printer. It's easiest if you have a pair of printed alignment tools, I just published a pair for the S5. Here's the instruction; https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/19953-aligning-the-axles and here's the tools you can print for the S5; https://www.youmagine.com/designs/axis-alignment-tool-for-the-ultimaker-s5 If yours is really of a lot fix it first roughly without the tools (put the axis as straight as possible and tighten the polley) before you print the tools. Oh, and tighten the pulleys really hard....
  8. You can just use the old UM2 feeder motor. Just adjust the steps correctly and you're fine. There have been different types on the UM2, some with a round axis and some with the Dshape axis. For the UM2+ feeder you need the Dshape, but if you have the round axis you can easily file it to a Dshape (to make the gear fit) . You may also have to cut the axis a bit shorter. It's been a while but I've done it for a self build machine and it worked fine. It's a bit more expensive ofc but I would prefer to get a bondtech feeder.... much less hassle... And if you really want to go low budget... this is ofc still an option; https://www.youmagine.com/designs/alternative-um2-feeder-version-two

    About the "chip" being broken. I think @kmanstudios meant the tag on the spool not the machine. Did you try to read different spools?
  10. Though I have no idea if you really have a firmware update issue, you may want to try installing the @tinkergnome firmware. At least you wil be sure if the update was succesfull. Look at the version number here; Advanced/preferences/version I prefer this firmware over the standard version as it gives a lot more information during printing. you can just download it and install using cura. https://github.com/TinkerGnome/Ultimaker2Marlin/releases

    Ok, I assume this it not the issue, but just to ask the obvious, you did plugin the NFC cable correctly and it sits deep enough? I had no network issues, plugged in my lan cable and the machine just got an ip address, im on a simple home network though, so noting complicated just a router. With regard to the initial setup, I remember Ultimaker assumes you'll set it up immediately with the delivered tough PLA and PVA. I remember I had other plans and was simply able to cancel out of the setup and select other material later (I started with some material with no tag, in that case you can just select the material in the menu ( click on the material, click on the 3 dot's in the right top corner, click select type) though I understand Ultimakers choise to have you load the material thats delivered in the box, I think specially for new users it would be wise to leave the PVA packed and start getting some experience with single material printing first. The PVA degrades (humidity) when not packed, so you better only open it when you start using it (or better, keep it in a dry box...)

    Congrats @kmanstudios looking at your great prints I'm sure you'll burn through that filament volume in no time 🙂 and @SandervG thanks, I had a lot of fun designing my entry. Do think the number of participants is a bit disappointing, but that may be expected during summertime.

    I would indeed use a drybox for pva and nylon but Ive never used it for pla... Think that would be Overkill. As the containers are cheap I keep a few and just leave the spools in there also for storage.

    this is very very sad news indeed, R.I.P, I really loved his creativity.

    Issues when scaling object

    aha, i had not seen that, that's messed up. It's a known bug, you can follow progress here; https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/3625?_pjax=%23js-repo-pjax-container
