Hi everyones,

 

I just got a S5 and this is my first post on the forum. I would like to know how the flow sensor on the S5 is suppose to work? I did had some issue printing with generic PLA. The filament broke a few times over a few prints and unfortunately, everytimes,the printer was just continuing running. I would have except the flow sensor to stop the print... How can I test if the flow sensor if woring fine?

 

Thanks!

    It should have stopped printing “if” the filament sensor is enabled.

     

    Look within your menu options and make certain that it is enabled.

     

    It has worked very well for me; whether the filament gets bound or runs out it stops and allows the issue to be corrected and then commence the print part near seemleasly.

     

    Once you check the setting and assuming the sensor has now been enabled then you can test it by simply starting a test print and then while printing hold the filament to simulate a bind and the print should stop and present an out of material warning. Release the filament and select continue and the print will resume with no issues.

     

    Please let us know what you find.

     

    Takes care
