S5 limits nozzle temperature offset while printing


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · S5 limits nozzle temperature offset while printing

I started printing with Gizmodorks PVA filament and it says to NEVER print their filament above 200C because it can cause permanent damage and it causes stringing.

When printing I noticed that there is an limit that they have put on how much you can offset the temperature of a nozzle (+-25C). 


Could you make add a setting for advanced mode where you can edit this settings at your own risk?? I am not pleased that I paid orders of magnitude more for a "professional" printer, but have less control than my previous hobby Ultimaker.

    The limit is only when you adjust the temperature on the fly during a print. You can set any temperature in Cura you want.

    Yup! It was just the suggestion that you be able to do it on the fly as well. I understand having some warning if you go below a threshold, but would also be nice to be able to do it.

      • 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
