Material station humidity control problem


Recommended Posts

Posted · Material station humidity control problem

Hi people!

We recenttly bought an S5 Pro Bundel and we are facing seriuos problems.

I am in a city that the humidity usually reaches 85% on the summer ( south Brazil ).

The printer is installed in a room with air conditioning ( 65% humidity in the room)

The Material station (MS) is never turned off, and I only use original Ultimaker materials.

I only open the MS when some spool finish, and is very quickly.

My PVA, Nylon, TPU printing are horrible, I need to keep dry in an external device and keep on MS when printing.

I'm dealing with my local supplier since 16/december.

Do you guys have this problem too? What procedures can I do?

    Hi I had the same problem after 2 months of using the Pro Bundle. After contacting my dealer, Ultimaker offered me an exchange of the dehumidification module which solved my problem. (60% inside before, 20% after). Contact your dealer and keep us informed.

    Ultimaker offered to my dealer to change the module, but not for free.

    As it´'s expensive to buy this every 4/2 months, we are looking for a DIY solution.

    Please @Silfried tell me if the change of the module is ok until now and how many time is working after this repair.

      • 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
