Buildtak flexplate and UM S5?

I wonder why buildtak sells these plates for the S5 while active leveling can not be disabled. 

Since the S5 is measuring at a lot more different locations the buildtak sheet will be ruined after a couple prints because buildtak doesn't like the hot nozzle tip to touch it...

    That's something only Buildtak can answer.

     

    But the Filafarm Switching System is working for the S5, because it is not sensitive against the hot nozzle. I have this system on the UM3 and active leveling works fine with the plate.

    Where are you located?

    Buildtak clearly offers the flexplate system for the S5 with "PEI surface only" (at least here in Europe).

    Basically you can use it with every build surface that can withstand the heat from the nozzles. That includes the UM-Adhesion sheets, PEI and probably a few more - but not the common (black) buildtak-sheets.

    I have no personal experiences with the S5 though.

      • 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
