I also had this a few weeks ago. Next thing which happened was a complete clog due to some black piece (most probably ABS wear from the feeder) blocking the nozzle.

I recommend to clean the nozzle once or twice with the atomic method. It worked in my case.

    It also looks like a high infill rate. I once had the same problem and was scared it would clog. Turned out the infill was at like 60-80 :p

    Yeah, I've had the exact same thing happen to me. It definitely looks like a small clog in the nozzle, but could be something else like printing too cold and fast which is causing the filament to grind at the motor interface. To clean the clog I would first go to "Move Material" after increasing the printing temp significantly; try ABS temps. While the nozzle is heating up start trying to extrude filament, if you keep getting motor skipping even at high nozzle temps then try the atomic method. If both of those methods fail it's probably a print setting issue; in which case post the settings and filament type you are using.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
