Ultimaker S5 Bowden length?

Posted (edited) · Ultimaker S5 Bowden length?

Hi,

I ordered replacement Bowden tubes for my Ultimaker S5 from GoPrint3D here in the UK and i just want to see if the length as been changed by Ultimaker because the new Bowden tubes are about 6" shorter than the ones that come with my printer and this means when loading filament, the filament will hit the printhead on loading and keep trying to push it for 6" more and grinds a lump of the filament.

 

So i have to lift the tension arm when loading filament to stop it grinding, the bag they come in is all marked up for the Ultimaker S5

    The Bowden Tube for the S5 is 850mm long and has the SKU 1373 (only the tube, no clips). The Bowden Pack with SKU 1696 is for all other Ultimaker printers but not the S5 (Bowden length 705mm).

    Not sure why an official resell for Ultimaker is selling the SKU 1696 marked up as for the Ultimaker S5 then, they even had to ship it in from Ultimaker as they did not stock it.

    Many thanks,

     

    I was guessing its likely been a packing error because as you can see from the image its marked up for Ultimaker S5, but clearly says its the 1696 and not the 1373 you are on about, i have contacted the resell to see if they can help because i have had to reinstall the old bowdens for now.

      • 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
