  1. I ask because this is the first Ultimaker material that I have bought that didn't include a resealable bag in the box. Thanks for your assistance.
  2. I'm interested. Do you have the boxes that it came in or how would you pack it for shipping to Texas? How do I contact you?
  3. Are the print heads used on the S5 identical to what is used on the UM3. I'm upgrading from a UM3 and wondering if the printhead selection I have will work on the S5?
  4. Thank you so much! That was a great help. I went so far as to remove the heated bed and no brown wires there. Also looked at the PCB. I didn't take the board out to look at the back side but I don't see any toasted components, PCB, or brown wires there either. I wiggled all the connections and cleaned every thing (it needed it.) After re-leveling the build plate, I tried printing again and it worked this time. (Yea!) I don't know what's going on but I guess I'll just keep an eye on it unless you have another idea I should check. Again, thanks so much for your help!
  5. Wow and oh c__p! Thanks for letting me know. I’ll look into it. You don’t happen to know where I might find some instructions or diagrams as to how to take the printer apart? Thanks again!
  6. I have a UM3 and I'm trying to print with CPE+. Cura defaults the Build Plate Temperature to 107, but with the bed heater set to max (255) the plate never quite reaches 107. Looks like around 104. So the printing never starts? Any idea what's going on? It did work 2 days ago.
  7. The "Custom Printjob Naming" plugin does do the trick. I can't select an object, I open the "Custom Printjob Naming" plugin dialog box, click "Cancel", and then I can select objects. Maybe that info will help the developers?
  8. That's interesting... you're "open a plugin dialog box" work around does not work for me. The only plugin I have is Auto Orientate. Maybe you have a plugin that does something different?
  9. Giving Cura "Full Disk Access" did not solve the problem for me. I find it interesting that it seems to have worked for at least 2 people.
  10. I have done 5 prints since I followed Smithy's recommendation and raised the bed slightly. It appears to have solved the problem. Thanks Smithy!
  11. I ran Maintenance>Diagnostics>Bed Level Sensor 5 times and each time it says "Sensor Performance is good". I then turned all 3 screws and raised the bed slightly and did a manual bed leveling. I then ran the active level process 3 times with success. Now, back to printing and we will see what happens. Thanks for your help.
  12. I frequently get an Auto Leveling failure at the start of the print. I find I can fix it by taking an x-acto knife and scraping a little blob of material off the nozzle tip. I'm wondering if anyone / everyone else deals with this minor but annoying issue? It seems that the material is not retracted quite enough and then a little oozes out on to the tip and then hardens. It makes sense that the auto level would fail with that blob on the tip. Thanks for your insight.
  13. Thanks for your efforts. At least I'm not to blame! Usually it's me doing something wrong. 🙂 Hopefully they will be able to quickly find the problem.
