  1. Hallo liebe Community, ich habe ein Problem und bin etwas verzweifelt: Es geht um PLA. Verschiedene Temperaturen und Flows und Retractions probiert. Beim UMS5 habe ich das Problem, dass am Ende jeder Linie wenn der Einzug erfolgt, ein kleiner Blob liegen bleibt. Es läuft folglich immer etwas Filament nach. Temptower und Flowtest wurden gemacht und die Drucke sehen richtig gut aus. Ich komme sogar auf 65° Neigung und habe wunderbare Bridges. Das einzige Problem sind Blobs am Ende einer Linie beim Einzug. Ich habe alle möglichen Retraction-Einstellungen ausprobiert. Ohne Retraction habe ich massives Stringing, egal bei welchem Filament und egal bei welcher Temperatur. Sogar bei 175° bei einigen Filamenten. Ich habe sogar eine neue AA Nozzle ausprobiert. Selbst bei absichtlich massiver Unterextrusion herrscht das Problem. Die meisten Hersteller behaupten, dass sie alle deutlich höhere Retraction Speed Werte benutzen. Gibt es eine Möglichkeit die Geschwindigkeit hochzudrehen? Cura markiert ab 45mm/s rot und weigert sich zu slicen. getestete Filamente: Bavaria-Filament, Ice-Filament, Material4Print, Ultimaker und ein paar andere (alle trocken oder getrocknet) Bereits ausprobiert: - Nozzle getauscht - Cura alle Einstellungen ausprobiert - Feeder gereinigt und Feder auf richtige Spannung gebracht - Bowden gesäubert - Printhead gesäubert - neu neviliert - mit z-offset rumgespielt Ich probiere seit 4 Tagen rum und bin etwas verzweifelt.
  2. Bonjour, J'utilise Cura 5.2.1 pour mon Ultimaker S5. Dans les extensions, j'ai ajouté "Universal Cura Settings V0.1.9 (5x)" et dans le Setting Mode Standard, j'ai remarqué un réglage qui m'intéresse beaucoup, il s'agit du Temps de couche minimum (cool mini layer time ). Malheureusement, quand je veux configurer la visibilité des paramètres, je ne trouve pas cette option. Est-ce qu'il existe un moyen de la faire apparaître dans les paramètres d'impression ou de l'indiquer dans le G-code ? Dans l'attente de vous lire, avec l'espoir d'une solution, Bien cordialement.
  3. Moin zusammen, kurze frage in die Runde. Ich habe seit kurzem einen S5 bei mir in der Firma stehen und würde gerne wissen ob es Federstahlblech PEI Sheet auch für den S5 gibt. Leider bin ich bisher nicht fündig geworden ich hoffe ihr könnt mir da weiterhelfen. Gruß Xenato
  4. Hi All. I have a S5 with materials station, running Cura 4.8.0. S5 running 5.8.2. When adding material to Cura from the Marketplace, it does not show up in materials. Not even after restarting Cura, logging out and in again. The material I was adding is the generic HIPS. Please help!
  5. Hello everyone! I´m new to this channel because I´m searching for someone with experience in metall FFF and its capabilities. I read a few things about it, but I´m not sure if it is possible to print a metall wood building screw. The steer angles and the point tip seem a little bit tricky to debind and sinter. The screw should be M8 x 80 mm.
  6. Hey there, I have a bunch of spool that sit in open air for too long now, and cannot buy and place as many dryer as it would be required, because of the limited area i'm working in. Anyway, I'd like to dry some spool alltogether during the few days I have with the printer not running. I've found how to heat manually the bed, but nothing about the chamber itself, that would be the most interestring to dry spools. Is there a way to control this parameter ? Or should it be a request ? In general, I don't understand why we have so many limitation regarding the manual control of this printer, regardind axis movements, temperatures, etc.
  7. One request would be for a high temp version of the silicone nozzle covers that can withstand temps upwards of 300 °C. I primarily print in carbon filled nylon and carbon filled polycarbonate, and many of my prints run between 4-6 days of continuous printing - so at the end of one print run my silicon nozzle cover looks like this. The burnt side was from a 6 day print with NylonX at 265° on the hot end, the other side was my support material (Aquasys120) at 240°. I basically have to replace the cover after every print because it gets so crispy that it starts dropping bits of burnt silicon onto the print. I am guessing anybody else running consistently much above 250° is going to have the same issue - I for one would be willing to pay more for a cover that lasted longer at high temps vs. one that I have to constantly replace and constantly is dropping bits of burnt silicone onto the prints.
  8. Hi, I want to download a previous version of firmware for my UMS5 but, the only options I can EASILY find are 7.0 and up. 7.0 still has bugs even the stable version. I need to downgrade fast to get back up and printing. I have looked for older firmware and its so freaking hard to find it you would think it be much easier. Can anyone help thanks.
  9. I am testing prints for a larger piece that will have multiple overhangs. Support I used BVOH for better removal, and main used PLA White. Ran into two problems: 1. both test ran into change in line thickness and consistency where there are changes in geometry. Does it have to do with temperature settings? 2. The overhang model are supported with BVOH material for easier removal, but the outer edge always are very poorly printed, it should look something like the "good" image(a test I did with same material) How do I fix these problems? Let me know if you need specific settings for reference. Thanks!
  10. When printing round shapes I get big blobs at the z seam, and in the case below I also get a irregularity left below on the picture. I printed this file several times and each time the irregularity happens on the same spot. So i have the following two questions: 1. How do i get rid of the blobs at the z-seam? (What I also see is that both wall layers are printed in opposite clockwise directions. I would expect less blobs if it would continue to print in the same direction per layer. Is this a setting I can change?) 2. Why is there an irregularity that keeps happening at the same spot? Specifications of the printer and model: - Ultimaker S5 - Nozzle of 0.8 mm (with a nozzle of 0.4mm there are no problems in this model. But I want to lower printing time by using the 0.8 nozzle) - Wall thickness of the model is 1.6 mm What i have tried so far: - Z Seam alignment to random -> Gives a lot of ooze and blobs - Enable coasting (with the 'standard' values that cura gives) -> No change - Increase the retraction speed -> Not a better result UMS5_Ontwerp 4.3mf
  11. Hallo zusammen, ich habe Cura heute auf die Version 5.2.1 aktualisiert. Jetzt finde ich nirgendwo eine Einstellmöglichkeit, in welcher ich das Druckbett meines Druckers konfigurieren kann (z.B. Glasplatte...). Wenn ich das Teil dann auf den Drucker geben, zeigt es mir einen Konflikt "Duckbett nicht definiert". Das Drucken funktioniert zwar aber ich möchte diesen Konflikt beheben. Vielen Dank für eure Hilfe.
  12. I found posts by GR5 referencing that if another camera were plugged into the USB then it would be found on the next sequentially numbered port. Also the api mentions camera numbers and the port numbers. By default the camera built into the S5 is on port :8080 and if adding more cameras... a second, third etc camera would be on pors :8081 and :8082 etc. so... I tested the api assuming that the index of the first camera, the built-in, would be 0. and what do you know! it works. I also found references in the forums to being able to change the camera resolutions. Also found info that the camera stuff wasn't being developed anymore, but it was still left in the api (Good!) So I want to put another camera that has a different viewing angle. I want to see the first layer being laid down more clearly. Is there an empty usb port on one of the boards? I really don't want to take the s5 apart to find out, if someone can answer me. Or do I need to find where the current camera is plugged in... and put a usb hub in? Or can I just change the camera out that is currently in the S5 for a different one? Are there certain specs like power, size, min/max resolution supported by the firmware etc that I need to be aware of? I do see the built in one takes a mini usb port on the camera. fyi, I don't expect these other views to be accessible via digitalfactory... but directly via ip address on my network is what I want. I also can then display it on my readyboard in the main room of our offices (based on magicmirror 2) ... we all keep an eye on it that way.
  13. Dear all, I'm kindly asking for *.3mf format file to CURA parameters to print PVA NATURAL supports properly. I'm using though PLA in extruder 1 and PVA NATURAL in extruder 2 for supports, but the PVA NATURAL blocks and melts deficiently when constructing small latice supports. Please, can anyone send me a file including the appropriate CURA parameters in order to print though PLA - PVA NATURAL combination. Thanks in advance for your attention
  14. Hi everyone, I am working with an Ultimaker S5 in an academic context. This week, I hav e been trying to print a holder for some fiber optic probes, shown below The part is coming out distorted, as shown up-close below You can see that the distortion occurs right above the point where support ends. I am guessing what is happening is that the part is pushed outwards above that point due to much greater thermal expansion pressure from the PLA than the breakaway. Is that correct? And if so, do you have any tricks to mitigate it? I am not too concerned by the distortion on this side of the part, but it also distorts one of the tubes on the other side of the part (more difficult to show). I think I will try some different orientations and will get it right eventually, but this problem has been more difficult to google than any of the issues I've had previously, so I thought it might be worthwhile to ask directly.
  15. I started getting the error "Difference between detected height of both PrintCores exceeds realistic values” I checked the leveling and as I was doing so I realized that the right B core is really quite significantly protruding below the level of the left core A. How can I fix this?
  16. After slicing my part, the hole have these weird support material layers where is doesn't look uniform or connected. Does anyone know what settings I can change in cura to fix this ?
  17. Hello! Has anyone else had the problem of occasionally getting bugs in their printer? I usually find them around the print cores (see attached picture). We've got the S5 Bundle on a stand and it's cut down on the problem, but we still get some from time to time. If you've had this problem, what did you do to fix it?
  18. Bonjour depuis deux jours mon imprimante S5 Ultimaker me signale un conflit plateau, j'ai réinitialisé sortie usine mais rien n'y fait, je nais pas changé de plateau, je nais qu'une bobine blanche generic toutes les autres bobines sont de la marque Ultimaker c'est la seule dérive sur l'imprimante, merci de me conseiller Alain
  19. Hello, I have an S5 and I'm just starting to do longer prints which are lasting for about a day, so i was hoping to use the camera fitted in the S5. However, when i click on the little camera in the monitor section of cura the screen goes a bit faint. I then clicked on the manage printer in browser link which led me to cura connect and there was my printer with a video camera button next to it, so i clicked it but still nothing happened. A black screen appears with a small page icon in the corner or a cross. I have reset cura connect on the printer as some people have suggested but it still doesn't work. It would be nice to use this feature to check on my printer remotely. Thanks in advance, Ewan
  20. Hello, I am running into some issues with the Ultimaker S5 placed on my work. Yesterday the printer started malfunctioning and it does not print. Whenever I want to print something it shows a E33 error: The X or Y axis stuck or limit switch broken. I went to the Ultimaker Support page and followed the instructions. I found that the limit switches were fine. However, when I went to test the print head movement and pressed: Home Print Head the same error code popped up. Does this mean that there is a defect in the motor? I included the log files as well. Thanks in advance, P.S. I would also like to mention that yesterday it showed a different error: An unspecified error has occurred in the motion controller. Restored to default settings. This error started coming up simultaneously with an error in the flow sensor. I was wondering whether the error could be caused by the bug described in the following thread: https://community.ultimaker.com/topic/35937-need-help-about-to-throw-this-s5-out-the-window-motion-controller-200euro-reward-to-who-can-fix-it/ But today the error changed so I decided to try to tackle that error first. logs-ultimakersystem-0030d623354e-7.1.3-20190214111740.zip
  21. I recently purchased the S5 Pro Bundle and began running some prototype parts. In the pictures you can see most of the issues. This print is using Ultimakers Natural PVA for support (P/N 9731) and Transparent PCA (P/N 1640). Below are the issues I see and would greatly appreciate any help, I did try searching for these issues but as I am not entirely too sure what the issues are called I was unable to find anything clear (settings based on material). I have also attached the project file to assist? Not sure if this saves current settings or if the model is included but wanted to include it as well just in case. I am printing on extra fine settings "0.06" using Cura Enterprise. After the support/ part material finishes the layer and is switched, there is oozing on both nozzles that either fall off onto the glass bed or get stuck to the side of the part / purge tower. You can see all the FOD on the glass and on the side of the tower and part. Delaminating from glass is a big issue and causing the part to shake when printing. This part in the picture did NOT have a raft on it but did have the glue that came with it. Does the heated bed weaken the glue? On a past part which had a large flat bottom (2.5" x 6"), the corners lifted worse with glue than a raft, but even with no glue and the raft it still lifted. This tends to only happen after many layers of the actual material and not with the support? The top surface or last printed layer has a bunch of bumps or blobs on it. I believe these are in the support material and do not seem to appear in the part material. It's hard to see, but there are many pieces of filament that are burnt in color? Not sure what causes that but it seems like that shouldn't happen. Is there a way to calculate shrinking? I tried printing a reference gauge and noticed that is was about 0.012" shorter across a 6" length. I really am looking for help with the settings for each material or for the print that I can save somehow in the software / printer so after I set everything once it will stay set that way. Also, any advise for future prints such as orientation and printing threads would be amazing as well! :) UMS5_Sausage Pack to 0.25in NPT.3mf
  22. Hi all, I had an issue this afternoon and can't find anything on it, might be looking for the wrong topic. The x-axis axle popped out of it little black plastic holder while a print was running. I noticed it only when I walked in front and there were no warning messages, it kept trying to print as if nothing was wrong. I noticed a small crack on the black plastic holder (on the left side), so it seems it was either cracked or cracked after this happened (there's a good chance it was after as the thing kept running for a while). What would cause this to happen? I do regular maintenance and oil/grease everything. Last week I did get an issue where the print head somehow pushed the whole glass plate to the left by 10mm. I've been having a lot of these issues since the last Cura update (4.9.1) and I'm wondering if it's software related. Or it's just a coincidence, but so far I'm not very fond of this thing's history of reliability. Cheers
  23. Hello everybody! I'm trying to print something (a simple cube) out of PCL (Polycaprolactone, Mw=80k) and I'm using an Ultimaker S5 to do so. Unfortunately, the print will not stick to the Glass bed but instead accumulates around the nozzle. Do you have any tips for me on how to print PCL? Some specs: Nozzle: AA0.4 130°C printing temperature Bed: Glass, 40°C with glue at the spot where the print should be Speed: 20 mm/s Fan Speed: 100% One further problem might be that I have to make the PCL filament myself, so the thickness of the filament is only approximately 2.85 and maybe not exactly 2.85mm. What I've already tried was to do manual leveling of the bed, because I thought that maybe there was a problem with the nozzle being too far away from the bed. Still no better result. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Mainboard S5 R2

    Hallo Leute, hat jemand schon einmal das Board von einem S5 R2 getauscht? Ich habe das Problem, dass ich nicht in das Menü gelange um die Ersteinrichtung zum machen. Board eingebaut .... Firmware provisioning: For new SOM boards per USB und dann mit SD Karte und gedrücktem Button Wiederherstellungsfirmware aufgespielt. Drucker startet normal aber dann bringt er die Meldung das der Schalter vom Druckkopf kalibriert werden muss. Aber ich komme nicht weiter in das Menü. Wenn ich das Kabel vom Druckkopf abziehe kommt die Meldung "fehlende Kommunikation mit Druckkopf". Habe alles mehrfach durchgespielt.....immer das gleiche Ergebnis. Auch Tips von Seiten Ultimaker blieben ohne Erfolg
  25. I started a print on our S5 and at the start of the 3rd layer it stopped with a ER65 after about 30min. Everything look good up to that point. I aborted the print and started again and it stopped at the exact same layer and position. I tried once again with the same result. What is going on? Attached are the files for the part. Marked in the image is where it stopped each time. Thanks. I ended up rotating the part 90° about the Z axis and it printed fine.
