UM S5 Capacitive Sensor Tray/Fan Bracket has Loose Sheetmetal Part [SOLVED]

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · UM S5 Capacitive Sensor Tray/Fan Bracket has Loose Sheetmetal Part [SOLVED]

Hi, my UM S5 extruded plastic up past the silicone seal and into the space in the print head surrounding the extruders.  I eventually got the plastic out, but I seem to have broken something in the lower fan bracket tray, because there is a sheet metal part floating around, and I cannot get the new silicone seal to lock into the various slits for the tabs on the seal as a result of this thing floating around.


My S5 is the older version (has the UltiBot logo on the sides, rather than the newer version with the U) if that's relevant.


Here's a brief video clip showing the sheet metal part that floats freely around: 


Strangely enough, the replacement capacitive sensor tray doesn't seem to include this free-floating sheet metal piece (https://fbrc8.com/products/capacitive-sensor-parts-ums5-s3).


Does anyone have any thoughts on how to reattach this piece or get replacement parts?

    Never mind, I realized that the silicone sleeve has long, thin tabs that surround this sheet metal part and hold it in place relative to the holes in the capacitive sensor tray.

      • 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
