    Hi @GAD,

    I think this is more suitable for the Marketplace section of this forum.


    In general for Marketplace materials, the compatibility of BASF materials is set by BASF and not by Ultimaker, so in general it's best to reach out to them with support questions (for future questions/issues).


    In this case, the reason is that these materials are too stiff for the Material Station to properly handle. Typically the filament will break inside the Material Station, because the filament breaks before it bends - so it cannot give way sufficiently.
    Typically materials with a Flexural modulus over 8000 MPa have this issue (so most-often Nylons with high contents of long carbon fibers).

    You can still print this material on a 'normal' S5 without Material Station (and due to it's moisture sensitivity - it's recommended to use a third party dry storage unit like a PolyBox or Pelican Box).

    Hope this helps!

    The BASF PAHT CF15 and the Ultimaker PA print well with the material station.

    The only problem I have noticed with the filaments is that the deprime of the MS does not work cleanly.


    For me, I have observed this as follows.
    When unloading, the material gets stuck. With PA in every case with PA-CF in every second case. The wizard for manual unloading must then be run through.


    But these are only my own experiences.

      • 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.
