Simplify3d Ultimaker S5

Recommended Posts

I don't think it's a good idea to use S3D with the S5. (I know that for the UM3 for example some stuff related to dual extrusion is handled better by Cura).


Anyway, obviously some things in the gcode are written in order to detect the profile used and printer etc... maybe try to generate a gcode with Cura and compare the information? (Most probably in the first few lines)

Thanks. I have already tried the UM3 and um3 extended, it doesent work, 

 Do you have an idea?


I think you have to change the header of the gcode to match a header generated by Cura. With the header (comments) the printer knows if this gcode is for a S5 or an UM3 and so on.


But I want to second DidierKlein's answer, Simplify 3D is not the best choice to use with an S5 (also not with an UM3) You have much more possibilities and power when using Cura with these printers.

This is working profiles for AA/AA cores and AA/BB cores. 0.4mm btw

  1. Download the attached file and unzip.
  2. Open Simplify3D, go to File > Import FFF Profile, and navigate to the saved profile.  This will import the settings into the software.
  3. To start using these new settings, click Edit Process Settings, and the choose the new entry at the very bottom of the Select Profile drop down list.
  4. After creating your .gcode file, import the gcode into Ultimaker Cura then click save. This will create your UFP file which can be printed on the S5.

    • "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.
