Ultimaker S5 - Setup issues

Posted · 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

      • 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
