new U5 firmware causing first layer to be too far off plate

Posted · new U5 firmware causing first layer to be too far off plate

has anyone noticed since the firmware update on the S5 that the nozzle is now higher than previously...? its causing me failures on the exact same file where the first layer isnt going down right and it is visually different as well when you look at the surface. Gaps etc which are the symptoms of being too far off the bed.

    For my S5 it finally produces a nice first layer since the update. Before it was alway squished, pushed aside, over-extruded and the first layer was too large. To compensate that I used to reduce the first layer flow to 90%, then the first layer was nice.

        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.
