skip cooldown is not working with Ultimaker S%

Posted · skip cooldown is not working with Ultimaker S%

Hi all, 

 

I've read about this error before, but did not find a solution working for me yet. If I tell my Ultimaker S5 to skip cooldown, it doesn't really skip it and the removal of the part cannot be confirmed. I have to wait for the build plate to cool down completely to be able to start a new print. As I'm currently printing with ABS, this means a very long waiting time of cooling and heating up again between two prints. Does anyone have a similar problem and has a solution for it? The firmware is already up to date and cannot be updated. 

 

Thanks!

    I do ABS too..  it's certainly annoying to have to wait.  The plate has to get down below 140 before the firmware will let you proceed.   If I'm in a hurry I just open both doors and the top, then go do something else for a few minutes.  A fan might help but I've not tried it.


    Some companies respond to the needs and desires of their customers, others only do what they think the customer should be allowed to have..  Same with governments.
