No start and end code in Cura for Ultimaker S5


Recommended Posts

Posted · No start and end code in Cura for Ultimaker S5

After installing Cura and setting up the Ultimaker S5, we notice some problems with start and end procedure. At start, some small blobs are present in the part area which does not seem to interfere with the printing, however, it leaves some brownish blobs of material in the first layer (printing white PLA). When the print finishes, the printer just stops and cools down on the spot, leaving a blob on the part. This could probably be solved by better priming of the nozzle before printing.

I noticed the start and end gcode in machine settings are blank. Is it at alla handled (maybe in firmware), is it missing or is it just supposed to be like this?

Adding some code to the end script to retract and move away from the part would probably solve it but I considering everything should be plug-n-play for this setup, I don't want to spend time tinkering unless it is absolutely necessary.

      • 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
