Ultimaker S5 not reading UM PETG spools?

Hi,

 

We have 4 Ultimaker S5 machines here in my lab and we just received some Ultimaker brand PETG.

The machine is not detecting this new material and we're having some trouble doing the manual work around.

 

Is there a firmware update needed for the machines to recognize this new material?

 

Thanks!

    Yes, firmware 6.4 or higher is needed for the UM PETG material.

    How about an Ultimaker 3?  I am having the same issue of the printer not recognizing the spool and there not being a PETG profile to set manually.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

    You can just wait with the UM3 until Ultimaker brings a new firmware to autodetect the spool.

    As far as I know they are working on it and also on a PETG quality profile for the UM3.

     

    In the meantime you can use the CPE profile and load it manually. (Generic CPE)

      • 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
