  1. I have an assembled Ultimaker. It should be ready to print. But I can't figure out how to use the feed mechanism. I can put the PLA through the mechanism and into the tube. But I don't know how to put pressure on the PLA. I can't find out what the black levers are for or how I should use them. Is there a picture of a working Ultimaker where a working feed mechanism is visible? You can also watch the video of my Ultimaker and it's feed mechanism: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ap5x_UyXmac
  2. I have a fully assembled Ultimaker and it should be ready to start printing. But I can't figure out how to use the feeder mechanism (latest version). I know how to put in the material. But I have no clue what to do with the two black levers. They just don't make sense to me. My mechanism looks exactly like the one in the assembly guide. But I don't know how to go from here. Does anyone have some pictures of the feeder in action? If my question is not entirely clear, you can watch it on video on http://youtu.be/ap5x_UyXmac
