S5 issue lowering second nozzle.


Recommended Posts

Posted · S5 issue lowering second nozzle.

Hello Everyone, 

I am having a weird issue for a while now, with our company S5 pro bundle.

It has been 2 weeks that the printer fails to start 9 out of 10 times. Always get the error, that there is too big of a difference between the 2 nozzle.

I realized that most of the times, the printer fails to lower/raise the 2nd hot end before probing the bed.

I think it works ok to raise it ( pushing the lever on the back) But it fails to lower it ( pulling the lever in front position).

It fails because it doesn't go exactly at the right position to do the switch, it's a few mm away. 

Now I have to stay during the whole heating and probing sequence to manually switch the hot end to the right position guessing what was the printer intention....

I upgraded today to the latest 5.8.2 firmware, with no change...


The white bracket seems to be on the same place it has always been... and the homing switches seems ok as well...

I am kind of desperate, and need your help.

Any one have the same issue?

I will try to get a video...

      • 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
