My name is Ana and I have a problem with my printer Ultimaker S5.

The filament is stuck in the print core but I do not know how to remove without dissasembling it.

You can see the picture below.

Thank you for your answer.

    Hey @AnaLara,


    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉

    Oh that's unfortunate 😖 What happened for it to end up this way? 

    Can you still load your printcore into the printer to heat up? 
    You could push the material through with another piece of filament if the core is hot enough. 
    Or, if you are really careful, you can try to weld another piece of filament to the part you can see and pull both filament parts out the same way you would do a cold pull. 

    The safest way is contacting our support experts.

    Been there - 

    put it back in, heat it up and push more filamant behind it. Easily done through the Boden  tube with the feeder lever up.   Use a different colour so you know when your done

      • 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
