  1. My BCN3D Epsilon has arrived and will be production ready today. Having some free capacity on one of my UM3E, I have downgraded to 4.3.3. So far, for the first dual extrusion print, my 2 printcores (both 3d Solex Hardcores) are leveled at the same height. So the problem was FW 5.2.11 on UM3E I will downgrade my other 4.3.3 too over the weekend. And not going to upgrade anymore. Again poor non regression tests from the Ultimaker FW team. Thumbs down !
  2. Also having all my Ultimaker printers wired and the S5 host with 2 UM3E slaves. With Cura 4,3 and above, the S5 disconnects frequently from Cura. This may lead to many instances of the networked printer created in the Printers list. Since I've downgraded to Cura 4.2.1 not any single disconnection from Cura. Regarding the disconnection from the web page, I haven't noticed it under macOS 10.14 and Safari, even with Little Snitch
  3. Hi @maht Sure we should have a video call. I am pretty busy with COVID products, but we can manage to make 30 min video call this afternoon after 15.00. Send me a PM with the link.
  4. @ghostkeeper I am not sure, still have the issue with 4.6.1 see my post on GitHub I do not agree at all ! It was perfectly working without ANY disconnection on 4.2.1 see my post from January. In addition, my hardware (printers, firmware, network) is exactly the same with 5.2.11 FW, LAN connection, same Ultimaker cluster. And it's not a WIFI issue as all my printers are wired. The problem is there since 4.3 release. I have just downgraded to Cura 4.2.1 end of the morning, since no more disconnections. Also the networked printer management is lousy in 4.6.1. If you have a closer look at the sreenshots in my above post from April 30 you will see that, adding a new networked printer, Cura is proposing to connect to Ultimaker-0031dd and in the same popup window saying that the same printer cannot be connected, as it is part of a group .... On top I do confirm that the projects handling issue hasn't been fixed. Loading a project, specially when involving a printer change often leads to material definition not taken or not fully taken into account. Which has been described into this post and pointed out to be critical by @nallath` and @territerriterri some months ago In fact the material is one used recently on a printer or shadowed printer .... Sometimes you need to load the project multiple times in a row to get the right material selected. That makes no point to use a project, creating the dedicated profile maybe more efficient. Please do some thorough testing and fix the bugs.
  5. @ghostkeeper I have upgraded to 4.6.1, but the same bugs are still there : - material are not loaded properly opening a project (GitHub issue #6626) - some materials cannot be removed (GitHub issue #6731) - disconnections - messing up with the networked printer 4.5 and later have optimized tool path compared to 4.2.1, which is stable, that's why I'm not downgrading a second time. So please fix the bugs !
  6. I hadn't the opportunity to downgrade before the lockdown in France. Since, I'm busy printing COVID parts in single extrusion where there is not leveling issues. I'm expecting a new printer next week and hope to have some slots end of the month to do the downgrade
  7. @ghostkeeper` Any update on these issues. On top of them I also have multiple disconnections with Cura 4.5 and strange behavior regarding the networked printer management. It might be linked with this issue, due to shadow printers not properly purged when uploading a project. See the screenshots. I don't have any logs nor time to explain more. Just have a look at the screenshots. After a disconnection I had this message Trying to reconnect I had the following Weird isn't it ? Another bloody bug in Cura 4.5 ! Thanks for your feedback !
  8. I do confirm that this wrong behavior / Bug is present on 4.5 and happens when loading a project based on a different printer than the previous one.
  9. No at all, I've created the materials when reinstalling from scratch the 4.2.1 months ago. I know about the fact that the settings are specific to each printer type (and also printcore). The bug is within the same printer type. I create a project using my custom material with 6,5 mm retraction distance on my S5 then save it. Reloading the project, overwriting the printer, material and profile definition, the material is often altered and the retraction set to 4.2 mm (which is not standard nor custom for me).
  10. @ghostkeeper Thanks for the head up. I'm 100% sure, I am editing my custom material : Colorfabb PLA White Quite often, even after carefully saving a project with my own retraction distance (8mm), standby temp (100°C), retraction speed (25), when reloading the project in the day, retraction is set to 4.2 mm, 35 mm/s and standby temp is at 175°C. Exactly the same issues as the bug I've found on 4.4 and 4.4.1. Same bug regarding the disconnections and shadow printer creation. That's my printers connections after half a day working. As the firmware is buggy and I don't have any material station or air station, my S5 is still in 5.2.11 and my 2 UM3E are for the moment in 5.2.11. But I will downgrade the UM3 to the stable version before 5 because of the poor print core auto leveling, as soon I have more printing capacity. Also from time to time, when loading a project, the material is not loaded, though the profile and parts are. It keeps a material used in the previous project. I am sure I've opened it as a project. I don't have any logs, too busy at the moment. The only reason I keep the 4.5 instead of reverting back to 4.2.1 is the slicing speed and sending speed to the Cura Connect Host. But I'm seriously thinking about downgrading too. Again please fix your bugs related to material and projects ! They were said critical but still there after more than 6 months
  11. Also numerous networked printer disconnections. Basically the PITA as the 4.4 and 4.4.1. Please Ultimaker Team fix the bugs !
  12. @nallath I have finally migrated to 4.5, from my previous 4.2.1 installation The issues are still there, but impact seems to be less. - a new networked printer is created each time I switch from S5 to UM3E. - material settings are altered from the saved project (i.e. retraction setting) After removing all the networked printers, reconnecting my S5, quitting Cura, reopening Cura and loading my project, another instance of my networked printer has been created, not connected. Removing the non active networked printer removes all connected printers. Note that reloading a project with the same printer doesn't create a new networked printer. For the material definition: First I have saved a my project with the retraction setting set to 6.5 mm Then reloading the project and bam ! The retraction setting has changed, even choosing to update the material. Here's the project file UMS5_Porte Ecran V3 0.8 x4.3mf Again, the two bugs (some were critical) I've filed from 4.4 hasn't been solved. Thanks for your feedback
  13. Dear community I have an issue with my S5 machine definition in Cura 4.2.1 after cancelling a project during the loading procedure. Cura is set up with an S5 as the Cura Connect host (networked printer) with 2 UM3E part of the group. Cura was configured with the S5 as the current printer. I have opened a project based on an UM3E for the printer, but at the second pop up, cancelled the project opening. This has altered my S5 printer definition in the printer settings : - Extruder 2 nozzle offset was set to 18 mm (value used for the UM3) instead of 22 mm - Prime blob position is now the same as on the UM3. Changing the nozzle offset is a no brainer. Changing the prime blob position is not available in the GUI. As I don't want to recreate a new networked printer (all my previous projects won't work), I would like to tweak the right definition file in the Cura setup files. Thanks for your help David
  14. Very accurate analysis of the problem. In fact it seems at the first look to be an heat creep. But after replacing the printcore cooling fan and printing successfully the same part without ironing, even with multiple parts, it is more an excessive pressure in the print core, having the filament softened too much. It is easy with PLA to soften it @55°C or just above. I have changed the PTFE lining of the Hardcore and ensured that the filament path is cleaned, it hasn't change much the issue or the symptoms. BTW I have Bondtech QR3.0 extruders on my two UM3E, so I am sure that the filament is properly extruded (FW have been tweaked accordingly with Bondtech specs). I am currently doing a test on my S5 with the same part, similar Hardcore, same slicing parameters, with ironing enabled. I would rather change my S5 extruders by Bondtech extruders, as the UM extruders are grinding quite easily the filament and a bit of a pain to clean. Only showstopper at the moment, no filament sensor integrated on the Bondtech extruders. If you have the opportunity to swap to Bondtech on your UM2, don't hesitate.
  15. I've been too quick ... Printing multiple parts has reproduced the problem, even with a brand new cooling fan. Again heat creep and the print core jammed with a 3d Solex Hardcore + 0,8 mm nozzle.
