Hello everyone . My name is Fred and I´m Relatively new in this community. I started last year , but have hardly communicated. with anyone sense then. Please except my deepest apologies for not writing sooner. I hope that I am not being too forward by asking for a little help. I know that this is a community that has a lot to do with Ultimaker 3D Printers and Cura,but I was also informed that I might be able to recieve some help although I donot own an Ultimaker Printer. I have a Labist ET4 3D Printer and I was wondering if anyone could help me with a couple of problems I have benn having. My first Problem is when I try to Print something with TPU Filament it will either print just the base or half way through the Print it will suddenly stop and discontinue the printing so that the Print will have not even started or will be half finished. I am sorry to say that I donot have any Pictures or Screenshots of these Problems,but Iam still hoping that someone might have an Idea of what might be the Problem and if it´s repairable. Any input would be most welcome. Thank you very much.  FRED

    Welcome Fred, 

    I don't know the LAbist printer,

    So whats below is a guess...


    for as far as I can see the feeding system is with bowden tubes and a feeder that pushes the filament through the tubes just as the S5,


    I also read there is a broken filament sensor can you turn that off?

    The issue with TPU is that it is compressible like rubber so if the feeder retracts the filament. But in the head the filament moves less and later as the printer is thinking it should. this can trigger that sensor. 


    But as stated before this is just a guess

      • 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.
