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

    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.

        (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.
