From my last post,

I found that the problem's name called 'Bulge/Buldge issue'. They recommend me to use another slicer to slice the file. I would like to know that are there any slicer that support Ultimaker S5 pro bundle. I have tried to use Simplify 3D and it didn't work for me.

    Basically NO, only with Cura you can use the advantages you get with an Ultimaker printer.

     

    But to slice, you can use any slicer you want, it is more difficult, but Simplify3D is working with the S5.

    Sorry, I don't have the config files anymore, because S3D was basically working but not really fine. So expect only the very basics from S3D, but not more.

    And I think it will not work with the material station or air manager, that's the advantages I mentioned in my post above.

     

    But for a basic profile, just to try it (without the material station) maybe @Carla_Birch can help with a profile file for S3D.

    The latest version of S3D (4.1) as support for the S5 built in, but like @Smithy says it’s a little bit on the basic side next to using Cura and will only support the printer itself  and that’s why I moved to Cura, only keep SSD for my flashforge printers as no working profiles for Cura.

     

    If you need a profile for older version of S3D, try this.

     

    This is working profiles for AA/AA cores and AA/BB cores. 0.4mm btw

    1. Download the attached file and unzip.
    2. Open Simplify3D, go to File > Import FFF Profile, and navigate to the saved profile.  This will import the settings into the software.
    3. To start using these new settings, click Edit Process Settings, and the choose the new entry at the very bottom of the Select Profile drop down list.
    4. After creating your .gcode file, import the gcode into Ultimaker Cura then click save. This will create your UFP file which can be printed on the S5.
