Recommended Posts

Posted · s5 reconfigure printer

Hi, my printer wont print and its giving me this message: Please reconfigure the printer to start the next print job. Extruder 1: Tough PLA Black (Ultimaker)


I changed color from Tough PLA Black to Ultimaker Blue PLA. the printer has recognized the new material but still I get this message and it wont print.


If you could help me in any way I would be very appreciative.

    The material you use in Cura to slice your object has to match the material you load on your S5. Also the color if you use UM filament.


    So when the printer comes up with a message to load UM TPLA black, then load a black spool and let the printer detect the spool via the NFC chip. If you choose manually any other material then you need to choose the generic material in Cura.

      • 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
