Hi Everybody,


I have previously made use of the ability of the S5 Material Station to automatically switch filaments when one runs out. Only a handful of times so far, but it has worked. This time it didn't.


You know how, if the bed is raised but not doing anything, if it sits too long, it will just go ahead and lower itself? Well I let some filament run out and the machine initiated an End Of Filament switch over, and the process took so long that before it could start back up again, the bed lowered. And by "so long" I mean that after pausing it just sat there and kind of deliberated for a solid 10 minutes. Then when it finally finished switching, the machine somehow didn't know that the bed was lowered and started just printing in mid-air, on nothing.


It seems to do this a lot, where it just hangs in the middle of some process or other. Like aborting. Aborting sometimes takes like 10 to 15 minutes. Not because the process actually takes that long, but because it's just sitting there kinda thinking about it for a while first.

      • 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
