Ultimaker S5 pause and shut off

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker S5 pause and shut off

Thunderstorms here are frequent. Incase one gets too close I need to unplug my devices. However I have a model printing and it would be unfortunate to lose progress. Does the ultimaker S5 support pausing and shutting off, then resuming later when turned on? The file was put to print via network.

    No, sorry.  Prusa printer firmware can do that (and Ultimaker 2 with tinker firmware) but not Ultimaker S5.

    Best option if you need to account for power disruption on an S5 would be to print with the machine attached to an uninterruptible power supply/UPS. I use them because we get a lot of wind in the area and it doesn't take much to lose power briefly.
