  1. I've only just started using PLA Black on my Ultimaker 3 - but the printer doesn't recognise the NFC. It works absolutely fine with all other spools, so it suggests the NFC on the spool is faulty. As a final test, I borrowed the NFS insert from another spool, and that worked (except the UM3 detected the wrong colour of course). Is it possible to obtain a replacement NFC insert? I have emailed Ultimaker three times since the beginning of December, but have had np response. Thanks
  2. Thanks -- but I've done everything in (and outside) the manual. Having taken the feeder apart and also examined it in action, I think that there's a design issue which could easily be solved. I'm looking to see if I can produce a simple fix. And it seems a bit odd to be talking about replacing a printer that I've only had a few weeks.
  3. I have exactly the same noises - it is as though something is loose and rattling (definitely not the levelling noises). Follow-up ... yes, there's something rattling in the print head unit. But I've done a lot more investigation and there ARE also levelling noises. Just touching the build-plate screw I can feel the screw moving fractionally.
  4. Thanks for the thoughts. I've done some experiments based on the above (Wedgebot not necessary) ... I did find that cutting to a point didn't always help, but adding a slight bend at the end away from the catch-point made the difference.
  5. From day 1 (4 days ago), feeder 1 keeps getting jammed up when I first feed the filament. It deviates off to the left and is visible through the hole. Sometimes it's possible to grab it and pull the misfeed out, but I've had to completely dismantle the feeder on a couple of occasions. It's now sometimes not feeding consistently. I'm making sure that the filament (I'm using the supplied filaments) is cut cleanly and is straight, and is pushed firmly into the feeder, but that doesn't seem to matter. Is there some knack to this?
