Filament Feed Problem when printing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Filament Feed Problem when printing



we have an Ultimaker S5 and keep having problems with the feed of the material. We used the german rankforce material and only had problems with it, then we switched to Verbatim and all of them are PLA. The first time it worked fine with the Verbatim PLA but now the same problem is starting again and we cannot get a whole print without any feed problems.

It looks like the filament is not forwarding and then is scrubbed away and stuck.


I have tested everything I can think of, cleared the print core, made sure the material is now on a bearing stand so this is not getting stuck, tried different hardness of the spring on the feeder at the back.


Attached are some pictures what happens to the material when it gets stock. Any idea how I can solve this. We also have a Ultimaker 2+ and I never had any problems with this one.
Would be great if somehow had any idea on how to solve this.

    but I have tried it with different feed settings and still sometimes had the problem. I opened it and cleared out the whole thing. Hopefully it will work better 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
