Posted · Ultimaker S5 Problem

Ultimaker S5. Using PVA Natural in Extruder 2. Keep getting message saying change to PLA Transparent. No idea why I'm getting this. Have printed with this very spool before with no problem. Cura says job is being sent to printer but nothing happens. Tried updating firmware, unloading and reloading spool, turning machine off and on, re-setting up network, and reloading Cura. All ineffective.


Cura recognizes the spool as "Generic PLA" for some reason. Manually setting to PVA Natural has no effect.


Cura profile says "Not Supported".


No idea what's happened here. Has worked fine for months.

    I think you can just go to the middle tab on the left side of the printer, select the top right item (right core) and change it to anything you want.  You can have it ignore the RFID and just choose PVA manually.  In other words when it says PLA and there is a confirm button, don't hit the confirm button.  Instead scroll to PVA and select that.
