Filament far away from print head


Recommended Posts

Posted · Filament far away from print head


i have massiv problems with the position of the filament after a shut down of the printer. First I thought it happens only after a quick abort. 

I print an object over night. In the morning the object is ready. I remove the object and clean the plate and switch off the printer. In the afternoon I start a new print. The printer heat up and starts bed leveling. I alway use the Prime blob to validate the material. But there is no material coming and the print start without material. After same second the material is coming. 

When I am fast enough to realize the problem I am able to push material manually about 10 cm into the core and everything works fine. The problem start after update to the new firmware.

I use:

Ultimaker S5

Firmware 5.4.6 20191001

Cura 4.3.0

    get it dealt with. Hopefully will be sorted soon as its taken the Ultimaker "it just prints" feel away

    It is a bug in the firmware 5.4.6 and since a few hours you should see a firmware update message on your printer to downgrade to 5.2.11. If not, check manually for a new firmware you will see that the printer reports 5.2.11 again as the new one to downgrade.
