  1. I delete my comments from here as i read this article with describes how the build plate is pushed on purpose....
  2. I have noticed the new bed level sequence in the .8 and .11 firmware actually pushes the nozzle slightly into the bed, it's not by much but compared to the older version which literally just made contact with the glass, I assume UM have considered this and we are not looking at slight bending of the build platform over the longer time ? It's obviously doing as expected as the first layer is perfect, but from a visual perspective it was nicer to see the bed not being flexed at all (even by this tiny amount) I assume this more direct contact was required to improve the accuracy of the process ?
  3. no problem, glad you got it sorted 🙂
  4. I have just updated my S5 to .11 and everything is fine so far, WiFi works no problem
  5. you need to update you z offset plugin, there is anothter thread on this, basically the UM firmware does not support the G92 command now, so the new plugin takes account of that and calculates the offset in a different way. Once you change the plugin to the new version it will work as expected
  6. On a related note, when my S5 offers a update it shows 5.11 not a interim version, should the available version show the interim version first ? Or will it do the required in the background ?
  7. Haha, I am the same, I was just about to install it and saw some more noise about WiFi not working
  8. I am in the same position, my S5 arrived last week and is on the firmware prior to the problematic one and its working fine, it would be good to get a summary/release note of what this release fixes or enhances. @SandervG is this available somewhere ? thanks
  9. Hi, I have received my S5 and so far very impressed, quality is amazing, lots of really nice features etc. I am not starting to tune the print profiles and rather than use what i had for my 2+ i am starting with the UM base profiles for the S5 and tweaking those. Looking at the standard profiles a few things seem strange which i would like some thoughts on. Speed - for the 0.4 print core the default travel speed is 150 and the field goes red if i go above this, this seems quite low ?, also and more relevant is that the default travel jerk for 0.4 core is 50 !, this is quite agressive and makes the printer shake a bit when travelling. Strangly for the other sizes of print core (0.8 and 0.25) the default travel jerk is 30 ?. I also noticed that for just the 0.8 core the option to print outer wall before infil was checked but all other profiles the infil is printed first, this seems strange. Any thoughts on this ?, the jerk settings are very different between cores and for 0.4 core pretty violent on travel, i tried knocking back the travel jerk to 30 and got some slight stringing on a retraction test, not tried the same test on a 0.8 nozzle so don't know if by default at 30 it will string
  10. Without doubt that will be the short belts need tightening, check the manual of how to do it. It's easy. I am assuming you are printing this part flat rather than vertical.

    S5 Active Level

    Received my S5 today, very impressed ! It would be nice to choose when the active level took place, as it stands it happens at the start of every print which adds to the overall print time, it would be nice to select when it happens, for example only run when a print core has been changed. Could this be added to the firmware ? @SandervG
  12. Thats very useful, many thanks. I will speak to the reseller and see if they can check the firmware, failing that i think i can live with those bugs whilst you guys get things sorted and use the work arounds temporarily. FYI - I am still very much looking forward to getting my S5, the 2+ has been amazing and I am sure the S5 will be the same (present teething troubles accepted) Cheers
  13. Could i please get a back to basics statement as to the status with S5 firmware and the issues etc, i am about to order an S5 and once it arrives would like to know the best course of action. 1. If it does not already have 5.2 installed, do not perform the upgrade ? 2. If it does have 5.2 installed i cannot roll back myself, but what exactly does not work in this firmware ?, is the issue that only single extruder printing works ?, i know the z offset doesn't work in 5.2, assume it works in previous versions, or did it never work on the S5 ? 3. Z offset is very useful, is UM planning to correct this (i believe the G92 command not being supported) on the fixed version of 5.2 ? As @SandervG has said this has started to move off topic, could for the likes of myself, we get a simple statement of what does and doesn't work on 5.2 I am sure UM are working hard on this, I work in software and know all too well that bugs do get through and often the correct solution is not the quickest from a customer perspective.... i am sure an update will come as quickly as it can. Many thanks
