Hi @Jose77,


Welcome in here.


The model you're trying to print is sliced for another printer than the S5 (I'll see there are two doors).


The object you are trying to print need to be sliced for the UM S5, to be accepted by the printer.

    @Jose77, I had the same issue.  Check if you are using the latest Cura software (5.2/5.2.1) and if so revert to an older version.  I randomly picked 4.12 and the conflict "unknown build plate type" was gone. 

    Link below to help make easier.:



    Hope this helps.

    Hey all,

    Welcome to the Ultimaker Cura Github 🚀 

    This seems to be the result of a change in Cura introduced in Cura 5.2.1.

    This line has been removed from the start gcode: BUILD_PLATE_TYPE:glass

    This was removed in an effort to clean up old code, since the functionality is no longer used. 
    The warning is harmless and can be ignored and shouldn't block you to start your printjob. 
    Sorry for any inconvenience caused, we are working on a solution that the warning doesn't pop-up anymore.

    Hey @MBZF,


    This line needs to be added to the HEADER, that something that happends in the back-end.
    You cannot add it in the start gcode it will not end up in the Header. 

    It's a harmless conflict and should be resolved with the next firmware update.

    If you really want to do this you can edit the .gcode file before you bring it to the printer. 
    If you have a UFP you can click your Right mouse button | 7-zip | Open Archive | 3D | models.gcode

      • 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
