How to use feeder mechanism

Recommended Posts

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

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
