Hey everyone,

 

I bought an Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle previous week and I tried the "PrinterTest" object in USB drive but it printed outside the print bed, thus I had to abort it.

Do you have any idea about the problem? Do you have any tips or suggestions to fix it?

 

 

I made a small video to give you an idea:

 

I was curious whether the x axis was stuck and tried to pull the head to somewhere to the middle and clicked "home print head" and observed that both axises are working fine.

 

Here are more images that give an idea.

    Hey Framar!

     

    Thanks for the answer!

     

    Yes. It happens for every print. I tried to print the 2 different test projects, I tried on project of my own and event when I try the XY calibration. When there is material needed somehow it is stuck at one end of the bed and only moves in Y coordinate but not in X coordinate.

     

    When it uses the 2nd nozzle, then it is stuck at the other end of the bed and again prints outside of the print bed.

    Hi Yaprak,

     

    Were you able to figure out what the issue was? I'm setting up an S5 and am experiencing the same thing? Trying to calibrate the XY offset.

    oh wow.  Strange.  Not sure if this is a hardware or software problem.  Can you supply a wider angle photo that shows where it *was* printing on the bed?  It looks like in the background it was near the left edge.  Did it start doing this later in the print or right at the start?

     

    Part of me thinks it's a hardware problem where the steppers skipped some steps due to extreme friction or something.  Part of me thinks the part was sliced on the far left edge (maybe the origin got messed up in cura which can happen).  part of me thinks one of the gantry rods slipped out of the sliding blocks.

     

    I think we need more information.  An overhead photo should help a lot.

      • 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.
