Hello,

I'm first time use the Ultimaker S5, I'm confused about how to generate the G-Code before export ufp file.

If anyone know how, please help me out of this.

Thanks

I'm not sure what you are asking.  You have to download and install Cura which will take your model and slice it to create a ufp file.  A ufp file is really a zip file (renamed to ufp I think) that contains the gcode and also a picture of what your part is supposed to look like.

 

Or you can just print over the network if you have the printer hooked up to your network.  But in either case you need cura to create the ufp file.
