  1. Hi! I'm experiencing tons of problems using the material station with PVA material. Basically the problems I have are 2: PVA Brokes always somewhere in the path form MS to Extruder Flow sensor Error during print The first case obviously is the worst case, since sometimes in order to restore the printer i have to disassemble all tubes and push with ABS [i.e.] filament through the material station and get rid of broken pieces. This appened a few times using third-party filaments, so i decided to switch to Ultimaker filament of course, but then had lot more problems and the filament brokes even more easily then the other. ( had problems and broke the filament also when loading without material station, it was really too much dry) Left also the material a couple of days inside the MS to let him "adapt" to the ambient and then re-tried but problems where the same. As a last try, in order to verify extruder problems, I had disabled MS and printed a standard S5. No issues with both materials. in my opinion, the path of the fliament to the extruder is just too complex and dry PVA is too brittle to move along that path without breaking out. Do you have any feedbacks on this? anyone other then me experienced this? I bought MS in order to use it just for keeping PVA in a good state so it is really a pity that it doesn't work, but i really want to make it work so any help from the community or frm Ultimaker will be really appreciated. kind regards, Diego from Medics
  2. Hi @gisley, Sorry to reply you just now. Unfortunately no, I am not in the San Diego Area, but honestly I would love too. I am based in Turin, Italy! Anyway thank you very much!
  3. Hi @DrCeeVee! thank you for your reply, I will try the 3 piece print during the week, but surely it will be easier to print them with zero issues. Usually i print the stacked version because i have 8 printers working 24/7 on these visors, and it is a lot easier for me to concentrate the post processings in the morning to optimize the working day. I have to say that printing the stacked version on Prusa hardware is really better ( of course, this design is optimized for their printers) and no stringing at all. Probably this is thanks to their additional cooling fan. anyway, the results on the S5 are quite good, i will try to optimize and keep you informed if i find a good printing profile for the stacked version!
  4. Hello! does someone had issues printing the 12 piecies version? the parts are quite good but when a "layer" of visors is done and the printer moves to the next layer of visors i get some stringing and it seems like the material of the following visor is not sticking to the lower one. Could be a cooling problem? do you have any hints? thanks guys and carry on!
  5. Hi all! Is there any update about the availability of the Pro Bundle firmware? I've bought and set up the whole bundle from about one month today and still I cannot use the features I paid for. Is quite frustrating to keep using polyboxes while having the material station attached to the printer. please realease something soon to use the new upgrades. bye Diego
