    Ultimaker Firmware 5.1.7

    Sorry to hear the printer is troubling you here. I don't follow you in all mentioned problems, but If understand you correctly these are: 1) When doing maintenance you want the lights to be on. That makes sense. Not sure yet if all menu actions should result in the lights going on though. 2) When you are manually working on the printer (menu), then Cura Connect shouldn't try to intervene. Best to keep quiet until 1 minute no user action.

    Ultimaker Firmware 5.1.7

    Thanks for reporting this problem, including the photo's. We tried many times to fix the problems in tracking the filament position on abort / pause / filament changing but apparently still haven't got it right. We made it a top priority to redesign this part of the printer. Since it is at the basis of the machine and touches all functions it might be released as small increments over several releases.

    Ultimaker Firmware 5.1.7

    This fix will be in the 5.2 release, expected February 2019. The patch release was not foreseen and is an unplanned release to fix a blocking problem. I'm pushing hard to get the led fix in this patch release as well but it's not my call. There are good reasons for keeping the changes to this stable version as small as possible. The led bug fix is tiny, and when feeling brave you can make the fix on your v5.0 or v5.1 firmware: - Edit the file /usr/share/griffin/griffin/led/hardware/drivers/linuxLEDClass.py - The second line from the bottom reads: brightness = str(int(max(1.0, value * float(self._max_brightness)))).encode("ascii") - Change the 1.0 to 0.0 - That's it. I purposely didn't describe how to edit a file on the printer. If you don't know how to do this already, then you better not risk breaking the firmware.

    Ultimaker Firmware 5.1.7

    @schen The problem with custom materials not being printed was found. A firmware patch release is expected in about a week and will have version 5.1.8

    UM S5 API: Amount of filament used by print job?

    "material_extruded" as reported in the printhead api is in mm Cura Connects reports the material amount as mm3.
  6. November 2 a patch was supplied where the wrongly named travel speed macro was fixed: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/commit/34b76596f19931cd7498c837e105d95f6db1d445#diff-2cad9b3c673fced30c0d516025e6db56

    Control the Blob?

    I just stumbled upon the option to enable/disable the blob per extruder. Not sure when it was introduced but it is present in Cura v3.6 You can use a skirt or brim instead of the blob.
  8. Browsing the forum on a mobile screen but not logged in, then there pops up a huge dialog that suggests to sign up. The dialog is too big to fit a vertical screen (1920 x 1080 resolution). Please remove or resize the large ulti robot graphic so the dialog fits a standard mobile screen again.

    Cura with Wanhao duplicator x4

    The original community member who supplied the D4S profile clearly didn't have such a machine, let alone he ever tested the profile. 😞 @rebekah_harper Your profile looks good, but there are a few things that hold me back from copying as is. - Is extruder 0 the right extruder and 1 the left as stated in your comments? I would expect reversed. - Official size is listed as 225 x 145 x 150. You have 220 x 140 x 150. Which is correct? - Is it true this machine only accepts X3G file format? If yes, then we can configure this as the default file type. Did you test and verify these codes, or are they just copied from another printer / forum post? I hoped enabling the 2nd extruder would suffice, but it looks this whole printer definition has to be checked... 😞

    Connecting S5 to a 3 extended group

    As mentioned above: make the S5 your group host and you'll have the newer Cura Connect that is still to be released for the UM3.

    Connecting S5 to a 3 extended group

    The UM3 firmware is a bit outdated in this aspect, it was released before the S5 was there (apart from a minor update that came out when the S5 was there). We are working very hard to get a new version of the UM3 out so that both the UM3 and S5 are in sync again. Under the hood a lot of things were shuffled around and this makes the update process complicated. We want to do a lot of testing here before we release the new UM3 software.

    Cannot load Cura 3.6

    UM S5 API: Amount of filament used by print job?

    You found a bug in the documentation. Correct is: http://xx/api/v1/materials/<guid> but the documentation web page adds an extra '/' at the end. Remove that and it works. I created a ticket to have the documentation fixed.
  14. Which firmware do you want to compile? I never tried compiling the Tinkergnome version, but a few posts above I confirmed that compiling the Ultimaker firmware is as simple as installing the old Arduino IDE, make your changes and then press the upload button. No need to install Linux shells or MinGW etc. In case you want to install Tinkergnome's firmware someone else should be able to help you.

    Introducing Ultimaker Cura 3.6 | Beta

    The Wanhoa profiles were supplied by a community member. We don't own Wanhoa printers, so for all the info and feedback we are dependent on you community people. Regarding this particular printer's configuration I asked more details in the thread about that subject and we will use the provided information to update the 4S's profile. I can't make a promise on the Cura release it will be in. As a workaround you can create your own custom FDM printer in Cura based on the settings of the current Wanhoa 4S and an x-offset of 33mm for the second nozzle.
