Disable Automatic active bed levelling for Ultimaker S5

Posted · Disable Automatic active bed levelling for Ultimaker S5

I'm trying to print structures on a silicone substrate. It worked fine with the S3, but that one now has a problem with error 18, so I tried the S5. The silicone sheet is too soft for the automatic active bed leveling. I know the auto leveling is not supposed to be disabled, but I need to finish this experiment. Is there any way to disable it?

    yes.  It's not too bad.  Slightly buggy: I think you might have to manually level twice in a row or some similar annoyance.  Every time you change either nozzle you have to level again.  It does not remember the "old" leveling (because you may have turned the screws in that time).  Other than that it works pretty well and I did manual leveling for about 50 parts over a month until I decided to go back to active leveling (because I change cores quite often and it got annoying).
