first test print with Ultimaker S5

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · first test print with Ultimaker S5

Here is my first test print. The good news is that the ultimaker did make it to the end of the print (17 hours!). The bad news is that all the lower surfaces (facing towards the center of the earth) are somehow jagged and fibery. I am a total noob, so I assume that I did something stupid that can be immediately corrected with a trivial setting. I note that no support material was used - although I had expected it to be utilized.

The test STL file is here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3188096 and I attach some pics of the print. Any advice would be very gratefully appreciated!

Support should have been used, Cura is even saying its to use so much PLA and so much PVA. normal if you pick layer view and press play it will show the supports also like this.


Thing is the S5 should have stopped printing if the PVA was not coming out, did you see the printer at all moving the head to the right side between layers to swap print cores?
