Hi!

 

I have new Ultimaker S5. I've double checked all setups, but can't find error. Diagonal difference is about 2%. W848067301_perpendicularerror.thumb.jpg.578fb84b2c78c5c7ba43d0d1017185ef.jpghat could be the cause?

    Hi,

     

    I don't own a S5, only an UM3, but as they are very similar, here my thoughts to your problem:

    it could be play on the axles (see https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/52606-check-for-play-on-the-axles  to check this), bad tention on the belts (short belts or even long belts) or a not correctly calibrated print head.

    The print head calibration at the S5 should work like at the UM3 (see here: https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/50871-check-for-play-on-axles  note: the calibration sticks provided for the UM3 won't fit the S5, as the diameter of the axles of the S5 seem to be bigger).

    For tightening the long belts, there are some good tutorials on youtube, like e.c. this:

    I hope I could help.

     

    Regards

    Often this is caused when a belt skips one tooth.  Look down on the top of the printer.  Do the axes look perpendicular?  Push the head around to the 4 sides.  Do the side blocks reach the end at the same time?

    Axes are not  perpendicular. Y axe has about 6 mm or about 3 tooth difference relative to the left or right side. 

    This error was delivered to us. What mechanical accuracy Ultimaker guarantee?

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...

        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.
