S5 Flow Sensors not working

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · S5 Flow Sensors not working

I just had filament snap on the spool and the filament sensor did not detect the break, the print just continued without filament extruding. The sensor setting is enabled in settings.


Is there a way to check the sensors are working ?, i would have assumed that by enabling the sensor as soon as you load filament the printer should be checking for movement on the sensor and have its own self test ?, cannot understand how the print can run (assuming checking the sensor for output), then not respond when the filament snaps ?





***update, the break was within the first 3 layers so the sensor does not work until after layer 3 (in case anyone else sees the same behaviour) ** this is not a bug ***

      • 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.
