UM S5 active levelling

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 is there a way to start the active levelling on the S5? (Other than starting a print job and the abort it)?

I haven't found it in the menu ... (I would like to have it though, to check a new manual levelling.

 

In the troubleshooting section of the UM website it says ... " Restart the active leveling process. " and " After this, you can start the active leveling again." - But I don't know how .

Thanks - Yvonne

I did not find a way to start it manually, so either I overlooked it or it is not available through the menu.

 

But why do you need it? I find that leveling in general is seldomly needed (except if you remove the glass plate after every print).

Yes  ...

 

you're probably right and I only miss it much,beacuse it was there before .

 

I use it a lot when I train new users on the UM and let the perform a manual levelling, to check afterwards.

 

But in real life - you re right - its not so often needed - ?

 

Nevertheless, thanks for looking it up !

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
