S5 firmware kicks out print when detecting 'difference between nozzle height

Recommended Posts

Posted · S5 firmware kicks out print when detecting 'difference between nozzle height

For some reason, and it has been going on since inception, the S5 will kill a print job when detecting a difference between nozzle heights. This is really, really, really annoying as well as a huge waste of time.

 

Imagine if you will, your printer is one flight of stairs and several rooms away. Basically, a big walk.

 

Now, you are sitting there monitoring the printer and it detects the difference (which, by the way can be iffy sometimes). So, you go to the printer and clean the nozzles again, and then have to trek all the way to the monitoring computer just to reload the file. Again. And AGAIN. AND AGAIN, ad infinitum.

 

The UM3(E) firmware will cycle it around for doing a print, while giving enough time to check for issues on the nozzles or plates. Much better realized in concept. Detect, clean, start SAME print job anew. Without all the danged blinking lights and other annoyances.

 

I have literally had to reload my files for 'reprinting' more than ten times sometimes just to get the danged thing to just move on.

 

Sometimes, I do nothing and it works during one of the reprints.

 

So, job killed, detecting difference in nozzles while cleaning in between. Sometimes, just send it back through and it is all fine. ??????

 

But the lakc of recycling the job the way the UM3(E) does seems to be a regression of approach.
