S5 does not recognize Ultimaker Nylon when loading material

Our S5 does not recognize Ultimaker Nylon when loading material, but stops the print with a warning that you must reconfigure Extruder 1 to be Nylon Transparent (Ultimaker), but that is not a choice on the menu.

 

How do I fix this?

    I also have a spool where the NFC chip is not working, so the printer cannot detect the spool itself. 
    When you select the type of material manually on the printer, then you have to select in Cura the Generic Nylon and NOT the UM Nylon. The material profile is the same so don't worry, but when you choose UM material in Cura then the printer MUST detect the spool on his own, otherwise you get the warning.

     

    But normally there is a possibility to override the warning which is also a workaround when you don't want to select a different material in Cura.

    Thats what I did, however it doesn't stop the printer from popping a warning. The printer is for sure detecting the UM Nylon, but only after I have loaded the material. It cannot detect it during the loading phase, which is very odd.

     

    Also odd that the S5 does not have UM Materials selectable in the menu, only by detection.

    The popup warning is only shown when the material in Cura is different from the one loaded in the printer. 

    So keep in mind that every material you select manually is a generic one in Cura (except the marketplace materials)

      • 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
