Extrusion issues on S5


Recommended Posts

Posted · Extrusion issues on S5

Hi everyone, I am having an issue with extrusion on my S5. Currently have AA 0.4 with PLA and BB 0.4 PVA. I either have the issue that the material is practically spilling out from one print core when the other head is printing. Also, then when the head switches it to print it gets rid of the blob  on the nozzle and then there is virtually no extrusion (some small dots now and again but barely anything). Any suggestions?

    Could you post your settings you are using as that really helps to see what might be going on.


    But a few things to check mostly with PVA is to check its dry and you will get problems with it (it's why i have started to use breakaway now) Also clean the nozzle that's getting extrusion problems.


    Filament spilling out of the core not in use could be your stand by temp setting or retraction settings.

      • 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
