S5 does not recognize Ultimaker Nylon when loading material

Posted · 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)
