Ultimaker S5 - Setup issues

Hello,

 

I have set up and started using our first S5 this week, with some mixed resultes.

We only use Simplify3D right now, so i have been spending most of my time updating the header on my profile to make it work with the S5.

 

Tried 3 prints this week:

Fist one was a small test piece sliced off site in cura, mostly to have a functioning header to work from when making my S3d profile.

 

Second one  was a roughly 50x50x100mm piece sliced in S3d, which came out great.

 

Third print was where my problems started.

I set up a big print (sliced in the same S3d profile), which started out just fine. Some time over night the print missaligned ~50mm in the X-direction.

And when it reached the end of the spool, it didnt pause and continued trying to print air.

 

What could be the cause of these issues? The layers are properly aligned when viewing the G-code in S3d.

The spool that ran out had previously been used on a UM 3 extended, so if it was just counting used filament this could be the issue.

 

Best regards, Billy

    Hello,

     

    could you provide the FFF File for S3D that works?

    This would be a huge help for me creating the right header an make everything work.

     

    Thanks in advance!

     

    Best Regards
