Can I disable nozzle heating during active levelling? It's causing the (TPU) filament to extrude out of the nozzle during the process, which causes it to fail.

 

Thanks ?

    No.

    If you have an Ultimaker 3, you can set the active leveling frequency to 'never' and start it from the menu without having loaded the TPU yet.

    No. Active leveling is always performed on the S5 before a print and cannot be switched off.

    A pretty dirty trick might be to start the print with a different material (that has less oozing at the temperature used during active leveling) in that print core (you will have to override the configuration mismatch in Cura Connect) and then to pause the print as early as possible (I can't guarantee it but maybe that's possible even in the heat up phase) and perform a material change in order to change to TPU.
