Ultimaker S5 - I can't print over 218 mm in the Y-Axis.


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker S5 - I can't print over 218 mm in the Y-Axis.

We very recently received this ultimaker S5, and I have encountered an issue that I can not resolve. We are trying to print an object with physical dimensions of (XYZ): 229 x 230 x 295 mm. I have checked and all these values correspond with the volume of the device, which are (XYZ): 330 x 240 x 300 mm. 

 

My issue lies with the Y-Axis scale. I can not seem to go over 218 mm to print. Everything else is fine with no problems. If anyone can help me. I would very much appreciate it.

    I haven't tried to print up to the limits of the y-axis, but I have the same problem with the x-axis: I cannot print an object larger than 321 mm. Are you using Cura 4.1? That is where I am blocked from using the full build area. I was thinking of changing the machine settings to increase the build plate dimensions. Have you tried that? Do you know whether the issue is the printer or the slicer software?

    What I did was test out the full limits of the printing capacity. And figured out how much actual print area was available for use. The issue I believe is the print head. It needs sufficient space for the nozzle switch. I eventually had to resize the print in order to make it fit inside. I am using cura 4.1. But I essentially I think the issue is that the printer has a set limiter.

      • 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
