Ultimaker S5 - Replacing the build plate clamps

Posted (edited) · Ultimaker S5 - Replacing the build plate clamps

Hello,

 

I have a broken build plate clamp on the S5 printer which needs to be replaced. I have done this before for the ultimaker 3 using the manual from ultimaker (Manual) but there is no guide for the S5 on the ultimaker website. The builtplate is a bit different, making it harder to measure the height between the base plate and the heating bed on the S5.

So I was wondering if I still could follow the U3 procedure on the S5 or should I change some steps.

 

Thanks in advance for your replies.

    Hi that is the gap on my S5, and I have checked my other also and they both almost 5 mm gap at that point.

      • 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
