Ultimaker S5 - Remotely start a new job after a finished job

Posted · Ultimaker S5 - Remotely start a new job after a finished job

Hi,

I just bought a Ultimaker S5 and using Cura 3.6.0.

After a job has finished, it is blocking other jobs that could be printed elsewhere on the glass plate.

According to the API request "/api/v1/print_job/state", it is in "wait_cleanup" state.

 

Is there a way to clear that state to send another job remotely without having to confirm the job on the Touch Screen ?

 

Thanks,

 

O.

    No because it will then do another auto level and make a mess of the existing part.

     

    Instead slice 2 (or more) parts in cura at the same time.

    That's something I was wondering, the auto level (tips touching) is done before every print ?

    Since I was to use 3 colors: black for the backplane, orange and blue for the letters,

     

    I used black and orange for the first printing with the black being "negative" so that the blue letters would fit to glue them into the "sockets" after they are printed. All layers were imported from three PNGs.

     

    Is it a best practice ? I'm pretty sure it will need some trimming ?

     

    Thanks,

    If you can do the letters on the bottom layer then it will come out nicer than gluing them and you could change the filament.  It's complicated though and easier to do I think if there is no auto leveling (like on a UM2).  I guess it depends how large the letters are.  A photo would be helpful.  This shows the word "Paul" in red and then in a separate print (with no auto leveling between) I changed the filament and printed a white part on top.  The white part was thicker and didn't know where the letters were.  It came out great.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
