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.

      • 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
