I Need help to connect the spool from back side of printer instead of loading in material  station.  Because the material I am trying to print is SSIC quite brittle while loading in material station. I have ultimaker s5 with material station at bottom. Refer image please

    So most people with S5 printers do not have a material station.  So just disconnect it.  Remove it.  Reboot the S5.  Done.  Right?

     

    I think that's your best option.

     

    I recommend you print your part towards the front of the print bed so that the bowden has a larger radius and is less likely to break the filament.

    I have a doubt that if we remove the material station will it sense the material spool is loaded? because i've tried that by just feed the material from back side but the printer is not sensing the material is loaded. kidly reply ASAP please.

    If it's not sensing the material, just select the material type manually.

    The sensor that detects the material type is inside the spool holder.  That may be lost at this point.  Look through your original packaging?  As soon as you mechanically put the spool holder on the S5 you then plug a cable from the spool holder into the printer.

     

    But again, you can alternatively just choose the material type manually on the printer.

     

    If you lost the spool holder you can just put the spool on the table behind the printer.  Often I pull the table away from the wall and put the spool on the floor.  sometimes I put something around the spool (heavy boxes - like unopened boxes of filament) to keep it upright but if it falls over it usually feeds reasonably well.  Or you can just unspool a few meters every hour or so.

    Some time ago I requested this as an option on the S5, such that you could load brittle filaments into one of the extruders while leaving the Material Station connected for the other. I didn't get a response.

      • 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
