S7 won't Connect to WiFi or print

Recommended Posts

Posted · S7 won't Connect to WiFi or print

New S7 and material manager.
It will Not recognize the WiFi. The S5 is online with the same WiFi and has never had an issue. . When I try to print, it enters an endless loop of pop ups asking me to load material that is already loaded. Clicking abort or ignore does not solve anything. 
I have not been able update firmware because it won't connect to the WiFi.

    I'd call your reseller immediately about this.


    But if you don't want to wait for them to get back to you, I would power down, disconnect the material station (just unplug the cable and open up the feeder levers so they can't move the filament), power back up and get things sorted such as internet, infinite loops, and firmware upgrades and only when things seem fine would I *then* reconnect the material station and close the feeder levers.

    I can't help you with the WiFi (contact reseller). 

    Maybe we can help you with the problem with the filament selection. The printer is asking for PLA Generic. 
    What filament do you have available in the Material Station? It look like a spool of Ultimaker filament. If you have loaded it and let the NFC detection do its thing, the MS will have recognised it as UM PLA blue. And since that is not the same as PLA generic, the job won't start.

    So I think the solution is either to slice for UM PLA blue, or to manually override the material to PLA generic

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
