  1. Hey everyone, I've been fighting this with since getting my S5. Glad to hear 5.6 will finally bring some relief. If you have dev mode on, you can SSH to the box and run systemctl restart mjpg-streamer@0 to get the camera working again. It may not last long though. I usually have to do that multiple times throughout a print. All that does is restart the camera streaming service. I found a commit on their github that seems to like it'll fix it, so here's hoping 5.6 isn't too far away.
  2. I've had my S5 for about a month now and after working with support and getting a replacement machine determined that the wifi on these machines is really terrible. They blamed my network for it, but didn't offer any settings I could change to make it work better. They basically said that wifi works in their lab. After reading a few posts on here, it sounds like I'm not alone. Has anyone found a way to improve it with something like a driver update via dev mode, hacking the internal antenna or even adjusting their access point settings? Getting a wire to the location where my printer should be is not an easy task, so looking for some help. I'd even be moderately happy if there was a way to reconnect it to a wifi network without rebooting or completing running through setup again when it disconnects during a print job.
  3. I wish they'd acknowledge and fix their WiFi. With as bad as it is, there's really no point in saying it has it. I opened a ticket with them and they blamed my network...
  4. Thanks for your reply. I think I got the prints much better now. Still have some stringing, but not nearly as bad. Odd that some colors of filament from the same vendor require different settings.
  5. We just purchased a S5 for the purpose of printing TPU, but have been getting lackluster prints. Our primary prints are GoPro mounts, so they have overhang in some dimension, almost always. The symptoms of our prints are general "stringiness", breaking prints when bent and messy joints where supports are needed. We've tried Ultimaker 95A TPU, as well as stuff from Sainsmart. Does anyone have settings that they have proven to work with this material? Or any suggestions for us?
  6. @akke how has the upgrade gone? do you print flexible stuff? I'm pretty disappointed with my S5's TPU printing performance and looking to upgrade the drive system/extuder, if it'll help.
