  1. I wanted to add that the printer comes with two glass plates. - One normale glas plate - One with Buildtak Flexplate installed - 6 buildtak sheets
  2. I forgot to mention it but I do have a couple new builtak sheets for this printer. I'll include those too.
  3. I bought an Ultimaker S5 recently so I'm now selling my Ultimaker 3 Extended since I'm no longer using it. The printer is in perfect condition with all accessoires: - Power cable - Power adapter - 2x Printcore (AA 0.4 + BB 0.4) - Glass plate - Hex screw driver - Spool holder with NFC cable - New silicone nozzle cover - Oil/lube Other extensions: - Front door - Top cover (Both can easily be removed if not wanted) The printer is in very good condition with minimal usage marks I'm from Belgium
  4. Ok Phil. I’ll send you a pm 🙂 thanks!
  5. It would be nice if we can print this on the S5 without needing MJF or SLS printed parts. But I think we should be able to print this with those stronger filaments out there these days, don't you think? I would really love to see your fusion 360 files. I want to experiment with them and report back. Thanks in advance
  6. I upgraded the feeders of my S5 to Bondtech QR and I'm trying to find a way to make the flow sensor work... That's why I wanted the STL of the feeder base so I can modify it to become just a flow sensor, not a feeder. I could then just connect a bowden tube from this feeder (now only a flow sensor) to the bondtech QR feeder and it should work. The ultimaker 3 feeder is totally different and the flow sensor doesn't fit inside. I guess I can try to redesign it from scratch but it probably takes a lot of trial and error to make a good fit for the flow sensor an
  7. I need the STL for the ultimaker S5 feeder base. Is this available anywhere?
  8. I'm fighting this issue for over 3 months now and I'm still unable to print several models due to this. My distributor (Distrinova) confirmed that the issue is not an issue on my machine. They have the same issue when trying to print it on one of their Ultimaker S5 systems. They tried with different colors, different materials, it doesn't seem to help at all and they said it's very strange because every print is a little different and it seems to be random. They asked Ultimaker for advice, over a month ago, but they haven't replied so far and my distributor is out of id
  9. @SandervG Hi Sander, I answered the DM already. And yes, I'm running 5.4.24. Can you send more details on how to go back to 5.2.11?
  10. I have exactly the same issue since upgrading!
  11. I've seen it on other prints too, yes. The last couple of weeks I'm printing scaled versions of architectural models and I've seen it happen on almost every model. So I think it happens on every flat model like these...
  12. For the record: The company where I bought the S5 from also tried this print on one of their own S5 systems and they too saw the same issue. This is a picture they sent me and as you can see, the problem is clearly visible there too.
  13. Hi, Thanks for your input! There is no grinding on the filament over here. I already checked the feeders and there are no signs of damage or anything. I'm also having this issue on both feeders which should rule out one defective feeder. This, combined with the fact that other S5 owners seem to be having the same issue with my print, doesn't make me think I have a faulty/broken hardware.
  14. @DidierKlein I've tried changing many settings after seeing the issue with the default Cura (Cura 4.3.0) profile. Every setting I tried did not fix the issue so I'm back at the default Cura profile now. I'm printing with PLA in a 0.4AA core and 0.15mm layer height, default cura profile. I also tried Cura 4.4beta, no difference. On one particular print I tried increasing the print temperature (using the fine tune menu, while printing) when I saw the problem. I increased it to 15°C (by 5°C increments) before I saw some improvement but after a couple minutes the same problem appeared
  15. Yes, i tried with a new printcore and cleaned the feeders. I have the issue with both printcore slots so it’s not a feeder isssue I think... I recently even asked my reseller to look into this. He tried to print it too and saw the same issue in the early bottom layers already. But no solution so far, he’s still looking into this. Someone else on facebook printed this too and also saw the issue. He thinks it’s normal and said things were better with a 125% flow but I have not tried a print with 125% flow myself yet because it sounds like a workaround instead of a fix of
  16. Ps: my distributor is also looking into this now and noticed the problem too. He forwarded this to Ultimaker already while looking into it at the same time. He’s probably going to try downgrading an s5 and test if it’s firmware related. But, it’ll take a while he said...
  17. You can not downgrade over usb and they do not provide the older firmware files for downgrading with an sd card because there is risk of electrical shock when opening the bottom plate of the s5. The power supply unit is open once you remove the bottom plate and ultimaker appearantly thinks we’re stupid enough to touch it.... So, we can not downgrade the s5 ourselves, like we can with the UM3. Ultimaker decided it should only be done by qualified people and by not providing old firmware files we can’t even try...
  18. downgrading can only be done by the reseller and no old firmware files are available for the s5...
  19. We're not the only ones it seems. I found at least 3 other people who are having the same problem (on their S5) but since not many people are talking about it on this forum I'm not sure what to think of it. I think it's firmware (or cura) related but then I wonder why there aren't many people complaining...
  20. New PCB fixed the active leveling issue. Or at least: I have not seen the problem anymore since I installed the new PCB... Yet, the printer is still printing too far from the bed at the back of the buildplate. This is very annoying for bigger prints and I would love to hear what can be done about it ...
  21. I just noticed that the S5 and UM3E do run exactly the same firmware version while the S3 has a newer one. I wonder why only the S3 has received a more recent update.... Besides this fact I have seen underextrusion issues on my UM3E too but I haven't used it a lot and only printed small parts with it where I didn't care about the surface quality... But I do think you might be right there's something odd with this firmware. I've just checked a print done with my UM3E and the underextrusion issue looks similar to the one I'm having on my S5. But on my S5 I'm printing
  22. Does it look similar to my problem? ( )
