Ultimaker S5 Firmware


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker S5 Firmware

The changelog for the firmware is usually uploaded in the blog section. But it just happened to be a little bit delayed this time.

For your information, we're working on a better solution where all information can be found on the same page so that should become much easier to find then.

But for the time being, allow me to share the release notes with you:



Translations. Updated all touchscreen translations, including German, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, and Portuguese.

Network setup freeze. Fixed a printer freeze in the network setup due to the network status being requested too often.

XY calibration. XY calibration can now only start when both print cores have material loaded. When only one print core is used, there is no XY calibration warning.

Active leveling fix. Fixed active leveling not always heating the second nozzle, and fixed a printer freeze in active Leveling when a single probe failed.

Flow sensor. Improved out of filament detection to reduce false positives.

Log files. Prevented the log files using all available disk space.

Extended extrusion. Fixed an overly-long extrusion move after resuming a print.

Clear build plate reboot. Fixed an issue where the printer would not accept new print jobs when the printer was rebooted with the 'clear buildplate' message.

UI improvements. Several small UI improvements.

Hope this helps!

    Nope, firmware for the UM3 and S5 is not (yet) available on Github. But... since the whole engine is written in python you can download it from the printer itself. You will only be missing on the marlin part (motor drivers) and the display code (C++ for UM3 and pyQt for S5).

    Hi @CarloK - thanks for clarifying. Would you be able to point me to a reference/tutorial how to do that? I've tried SSHing to take a look, but can't seem to connect and can't find anything related to UM5 on the website... thanks!

    So the username and password is root/ultimaker


    Have you used ssh before?  What operating system do you have?  ssh is built into mac and linux but for windows I recommend "putty".


    To ssh to my um3 I had to put it into developer mode.  I don't remember doing that for my S5 but I might have (it has been several weeks).  The ip address is written right on the control panel for the S5 at the top.

    @gr5 - yes, thank you - I'm on OSX and very familiar with SSH, but with the printer I only get "connection refused" errors. The IP address is correct though, since I can connect to it via HTTP and can see the web UI in the browser. Will have to check later if the Developer mode setting is enabled, might not be the case... thanks for the tip & I will report back asap!

    @gr5 - dev mode FTW! ? That did the trick and I just SCP'ed the entire griffin folder to my laptop - thanks again for your help! ?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
