  1. Which spare parts for the 3/S3/S5 printers do people typically keep on hand? I'm not talking about things like build plates or print cores, but things like fans and other little odds and ends that can fail. I have to replace the axial (hot end) fan on my S5, so of course the printer is down until the new fan shows up later this week.
  2. I'm going to answer my own question about the NFC improvements and the Material Station. Prior to 5.8.2, getting the Material Station to read NFC codes was a real pain. It could take 8-10 tries to get it to work and it seldom worked the first time. I did a lot of loading and unloading with some filaments that were in the 8-10-try category this evening to test the improvements, and even added a filament the station hadn't seen before. Everything worked the first time.
  3. Has anyone tried out the Material Station NFC improvements yet?
  4. I've seen this. It seems to be more of a problem with PLA than anything else. I mentioned this behavior in the Ultimaker group on Facebook. I have an S5 with an air manager, and one suggestion is that the air manager is creating a draft as it pulls are into the printer. Maybe, maybe not. I'm beginning to think that it is a problem with Cura, but I just don't know.
