  1. I have the same problem with my S5. I've been having some success with flipping the support to nozzle 1 and material to nozzle 2. Hope this helps. I totally understand the frustration of spending hours watching as print after print is unusable.
  2. Just an update. I switched support to extruder # 1 and material to extruder #2. So far so good as the material does not seem to drool when the bed is being leveled.
  3. Thank you for your post. I replaced the nozzle thinking maybe something was sticking. I thought I had it fixed. No such luck. I keep the Firmware updated anytime there is a new one available. I have this feeling that the support nozzle oozes a little and throws of the leveling for that nozzle. I usually open the extruder motor and retract the material until it finishes leveling. It's pretty time consuming. It usually happens when I'm pressed for time. 😞 Thanks again.
  4. I am having trouble on my S5 getting my breakaway support that's loaded as Extruder2 to print a good first layer. The PLA material in extruder 1 works great. But it seems like Extruder 2 is higher than Extruder 1. I have leveled the bed about a million times. I have cleaned the drool that comes out of Extruder 2 before it self levels. I have moved my parts to a different part of the glass. I have changed material spools. I have cleaned the glass. Eventually it works but I can't pin down what fixed the problem. Are the print nozzle heights being set when the bed self levels before the print? in
  5. After fighting this problem for a couple hours, I shut the machine down and now it works perfectly. Don't know if that's the fix for every time but I have one more tool to get perfect first support layers.

  7. After I fought for a bit I realized I had an AA-0.4 pint nozzle in the Cura support extruder. It needed to be a BB-0.4 nozzle.
  8. Thank you guys so much for confirming my suspicions. @Helmut92, thanks for telling me where the option lies
  9. I have a new S5. According to the compatibility page I should be able to print Nylon using a PVA support? But when I choose that combination it refuses to slice. And when I installed the .04 heads in the machine it said the .04 print heads did not support Breakaway material. To get around the problem I told Cura I wanted to use breakaway material so it would slice and just ignored the fact that I have PVA in the machine. The print temperatures and speeds are similar, So I think I'll be OK but I'm missing something in the Compatibility chart. I figured using the "Recommended" Option would set a
  10. Hi guys, When I try to print my files I get that round 3rd piece in the corner. How do I get rid of it. Or is it something the software needs? Thanks
  11. You're a Wizard!!! Fixed me right up. Thanks a million.
  12. Thank you for the help. I don't get the same options. As you can see the machine says "Multiple Detected, Load 1 spool at a time" I thought that meant I have material and PVA loaded at the same time?
  13. Smithy, Thank you so much for your help. I have since replaced the material with 3 different UM rolls. As I load it just shows ABS. When I select "ABS" thinking a pull out with options would present itself. Instead it just gives me the options of "Load, Unload and Replace" or something like that. I contacted UM support and they said they would send me a new NFC sticker. She also said that if I'm getting the program from CURA the G code will give the machine what it needs. So what the machine thinks is not that important.
