How do I manually heat up the build plate on the S5?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · How do I manually heat up the build plate on the S5?

Dear Community,


sorry for the easy question, but I can't find an answer to this. In this article on how to dry PVA (https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360012057799-How-to-dry-Ultimaker-PVA) it is recommended to heat up your build plate and dry the material on it. The problem is, I can't find the option on my Ultimaker S5 to just heat up the plate. I also can't find any option to do this in Cura. 

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!


Never mind, found it. This can be deleted!

PS: If anyone else is interested, on the S5 homescreen press the middle option where you can change materials, then on the Glass plate, and then on the three dots to change the Temperature.
