S5 default profile settings

Posted · S5 default profile settings

Hi,

 

I am preparing some profiles for my incoming S5 and noticed that the default profile settings for the 0.8 nozzle look a little odd, for example, the default for retraction is 5mm distance as apposed to 6.5 for the 0.4, could someone from UM please confirm this is correct, should the retraction settings for 0.8 be 5mm and 25m/s ?

 

 

@CarloK hoping you might be able to confirm ?

 

Also are there any plans for a 0.6mm print core ?, seems strange to have 0.25, 0.4 and 0.8 but no 0.6

 

Many Thanks

    I cannot officially confirm the setting, but I never had any problems printing with these default settings and the 0.8 print core.

     

    Regarding 0.6, there is the CC red core, which is 0.6. Maybe "over sized" for normal materials, but it works also for PLA and non-abrasive materials.

    Thanks, yes i saw that CC core but as you say its overkill for normal materials (has a Ruby nozzle etc) and the cost is much more than a normal core. Ideally i would have really liked a normal 0.6 core.....

     

    interestingly i looked at the default profiles for my 2+ and the retraction length for 0.8 and even 1mm nozzle is still the same as 0.4 at 6.5mm, maybe the print cores used on the S5 at sizes over 0.4 require less retraction than for the Olson block on the 2+, but seems odd....., hopefully someone from UM can confirm

      • 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
