  1. S5 and UM3 Wifi is very close to useless. I recommend connecting it to the network via LAN cable. The WiFi seems to only support 2.4GHz, which today is totally saturated. I find it strange that a €7000 product has a $2 WiFi chip. That said, if you connect the S5 with a LAN cable, the online functionality is very stable. (If UM try to sound this like it is a special case, that is not true. At work, we have a shared lab with 4 Ultimakers, owned by 3 different companies, bought at different times and even in different countries. None of them are able to stay connect to WiFi. Howeve
  2. - Cura 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4(.1) - I have one MacBook Pro 2015 (i5, 8GB, Inten Iris, 512GB SSD) and one MacBook Air 2013 (i7, 8GB, Intel gfx, 512GB SSD). Problem is the same on both. - Both machines works very fast in Fusion 360 on large, complex models - MacOS 10.14.6 - The GUI is fast when no model is loaded, so it seems to me that the GUI uses 3D rendering resources. The more complex model loaded, the slower the GUI is, down to 30 seconds respons time per click. @SandervG: Yeah, I know the slicer is important, and I spend _a lot_ of time tuning slicer profiles. Th
  3. Cool, looking forward to i! If you need any user feedback or testing on Macs, please feel free to PM me or send me a mail!
  4. We are getting help with Cura in this thread now: Thanks!
  5. I think the key to getting test users, is that they feel that they are listened to and that their effort makes the program better. Your answers here now, has completely changed my hope of getting Cura to work better (especially since the compatibility mode seems to help). As long as I feel we have good communication, I'm definitely willing to help out test beta versions and give feedback 🙂 Thanks a lot for answering! (You know, I have already payed €7000 for the printer, and really want it be useful. We just replaced the Ultimaker S5 at work with a €500 Wanh
  6. That is really good news 😄 Looking forward to the next version. Will try the compatibility mode.
  7. Thanks for the reply, and sorry if I sounded harsh. I'm just very frustrated, this program I am so dependent on, eating up my workdays. I think it is a problem on many Macs. Some more info, if it can help you: - I have one MacBook Pro 2015 (i5, 8GB, Inten Iris, 512GB SSD) and one MacBook Air 2013 (i7, 8GB, Intel gfx, 512GB SSD). Problem is the same on both. - Both machines works very fast in Fusion 360 on large, complex models - MacOS 10.14.6 - The GUI is fast when no model is loaded, so it seems to me that the GUI uses 3D rendering resources.

  8. Because it is incredibly slow on both my Mac computers. Up to 30 seconds to expand menu items in the print settings menu. Never under 5 seconds. I'm tuning a lot in slicer settings when I print, and just preparing a model for printing can take 10-15 minutes due to the slow GUI response. It is really, really bad. Also it generates inferior results (except supports, which are great in Cura).
  9. Wow, that is a bold statement. I use Cura 4 on two different Mac computers. It taks up to 30 seconds just to expand some configuration alternatives in the Print Settings menu. And almost never under 5 seconds. I'm tearing my hair out in frustration. Fortunately I have only on of my printers being a Ultimaker, so for all the other ones I can use Slicer. But for the S5, I have to use Cura and it is a really, really, really slow and bad piece of software. I paid €7000 for that machine, due to Cura I hate using it.
  10. Hi, Sander, I'm located in Norway. I will make a writeup of all the issues to my dealer. I'm not totally locked in to Cura, but you havn't made it easy for others. Your new header system which contains crucial information in comments, needs to be at the top of the file (even when tagged with start/stop) so that including it as "start g-code" in other slicers won't work (they always insert a comment at the file start). I have to manually modify each gcode-file. Also the rigidity is terrible. If you have a fine detail in a print, the following extrusion is off
  11. The S5 is not a good product. Print quality is much worse then a $600 China printer, WiFi is impossible to get to work, it doesn't take normal gcode, so you are stuck with Cura (it uses a new, small gcode subset). The startup procedure is really bad, reboot time horrible. One of the worst printers I have ever had. It would be a good deal for $1200. Go for a Creality or Wanhao. They are so much better, and cost a fraction.
