Posted · Is there anything wrong with this printer? PVA not working

Hello everyone! My name is Nick, and I'm new to 3D printing. I was super excited when I got this Ultimate S5 couple days ago. However, as I was printing, I started to discover that there is a problem with the PVA print. Every time, it didn't come out correctly from the feeder as the image shows. It either clogged or suddenly fed out a large pile of PVA during printing, which was very frustrating. The 3D printer is covered and placed in a room with closed windows, so I don't think that internal temperature is a problem. What could the problem be? Moisturized material? Broken feeder? Bad Cura set-up? The printer is broken? I need to solve this issue asap so I can replace the machine if the machine itself is broken. Sorry for taking your time. I truly appreciate your help!

    Had the same problem on my UM3, got clogged during several trials mid-print.

    Was using non UM material, today I started a new print with UM PVA to see if it helps.

    I was using the same PVA material that comes with the package. Maybe it's a little wet, I'll dry it and see how it goes.

    I actually have the same problem with my S5 using UM PVA but I think there is a second issue of excess oozing as I notice a fair bit that comes out of the nozzle between nozzle switching during print. I hope we both can get some answers. This is material straight from the bag and in the printdry for several hours before print and during the entire 13 hour print time in my house which is about 36% humidity.

      • 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.
