underextrusion isn't always temperature related.  It could be you have something wrong with the feeder or the nozzle.  If you can show a photo of the top of the part it should be more obvious if the problem is underextrusion.


Also if you slice for 0.4mm wide paths but use an AA 0.6 core.


I'd really like to see the top of the part zoomed in as well as the photo you already published.


I assume this is an AA 0.4 core.  You could try the other core - S5 printers come with two AA 0.4 and a BB 0.4.  Sometimes the nozzles get partially clogged - the plastic can caramelize on the inner walls of the nozzle and turn your 0.4mm hole in your nozzle into a 0.3mm hole.  Then you get mild underextrusion like in your photo.


Especially if you are raising the temperature so high - this can cause much more rapid caramelization.

        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.
