UM S5 - Material blob on top layer

Recommended Posts

Posted · UM S5 - Material blob on top layer

When finishing a print, our UM S5 "pauses" for a short time after the last move, and only then lowers the build platform. This has the effect of nearly always producing a blob of material on top of the print (and sometimes also a melted area around the last nozzle contact point), which for some prints is quite difficult to remove cleanly. My Anycubic i3 Mega at home suffers much less from this problem, so I would think that the problem should be solvable with the S5 also.

 

Does any of you have experience with this?

I have this exact problem, and would love to know if there's a tweak to a setting that I've been missing.

I had this problem with the previous firmware too, but since the last firmware update, I never had this issue again.
