Hi guys,

2 day ago i got Ultimaker S5 Bundle (air+material station)

I have a few problems.

1. When printer finish the print, nothing happens and just freeze, i need always to restart.


Only 1st  time i press unload head 1 and it was unloaded in head 2 after that nothing works anymore as written in 2. and 3.

2. I cant unload material from head 1, just unloading screen and nothing happens, material doesnt unload.

3. In head 2 material is not loaded, on screen load option is gray and there is only unload option. If i press unload nothing happens.


im running latest firmware and i tried 2 before, its same.

Any thoughts?

    For the first one "1. When printer finish the print, nothing happens and just freeze, i need always to restart."


    Are you letting the print bed cool down first before you turn off. Once a prints done the print bed will cool down before you can confirm you have removed the print. This is designed so you don't burn yourself on hot glass.

    The bed cooldown but message finishing is all the time i let it 2 hours and screen freeze. the material is always loaded and its impossible to unload.

    Hi Krleas, thank you for your message. 

    We're sorry to hear you seem to have some issues with your Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle. 

    If you unload the filament from print core 2 without using the wizard, it is possible that the Ultimaker thinks material is loaded when it is not. Do you remember how the material became unloaded, which was unloaded when you reported this? Can you describe how you unload filament?


    You could hit the unload button and wait for the procedure to end to restore it back to normal. 


    If you are unable to unload filament from print core 1, but you are able to load it, this may be something for a reseller to look into. Have you contacted them already? 


    Regarding your printer freezing, I will check this with our product experts. Thank you for your time and patience

    Hi @krleas


    I would like to ask you to make sure you have the latest firmware installed and do a factory reset. If the problem of freezing still persists then, please collect your logs on a USB and share them with us via our support ticket system.


    Usually the material station should unload filament by itself when a print is finished. When do you need to press unload yourself? A workaround to unload material when it doesn't, is to change 'change print core'. It will first unload the material. This is not something you should want to be doing structurally, but if it happens once it could be an option.


    Hope this helps,

      • 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
