Ultimaker out of material, when it's not


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker out of material, when it's not

Hi everyone


I've been having issues with my ultimaker S5 saying it's out of material, when it's not. I have looked into the issue by:
1. Changing printcores

2. Changing filament type

3. Cleaning nozzles

4. Cleaning motors on the back


I still can't seem to fix the issue, has anyone been having the same problems?

Hope that someone can help me fix this problem.

    Have you checked the tension on the filament on the feeder? You might need to adjust it so it grips tighter (adjust via the screw on top of the feeder) The filament should have some small marks in it where its getting gripped and pushed, it the tension is wrong it can slip and you will find you will have bits of filament missing where its slipped and eat away.

        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.
