What's going on guys,


I'm JJ  (Jan-Jaap for the dutchies) and just a couple of months fresh into the printing world.

Work as a one man army with metals, from welding to cad-design to automotive sheet metal. have my own shop and once in a while i do some prototyping. 

used an Ender 3 pro from a friend once in a while (awesome prints for the money) but decided i wanted one that has more reliability for different materials so i can use them as end products.

Bought a used S5 from 2021 and purchased the air manager couple of days later.  Build the whole thing into the wall of the office so i can reach it from both sides and hopefully it keeps the dust from grinding and welding out a little bit.

also added a mirror for the main camera, a cheap camera on top  and a weatherstation to keep an eye on it when i'm gone. 


was already browsing this forum for a while and had a lot of questions answered by reading but i do have one unanswered.. 

don't have a material station yet or a filament dryer so i'm drying my nylon on the print bed.


Is there any way to turn off the fan without deinstalling it? just for drying material, although i can imagine it dries faster with a bit of air flow i don't feel like changing the filter at some point just for drying?


Thanks for reading!

      • 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!

      • 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.
