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

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
