Hi, the quality of the prints was fine-no signs of under extrusion. Printed 4 or 5 things without any issues, it was only after changing and loading filament that no plastic at all came out of the nozzle. I had to re-adjust the feeder spring again as well as do an atomic clean. I'll try changing filament back again and see if the problem happens again.
Thanks for your reply.
Thank you for your post and welcome to the community
Besides being able to extrude some plastic, would you say you made a successful print?
And did you have to tighten the spring again, after the filament swap?
If you are unsure about the quality of your prints, you could upload some photo's of your prints. That would be of much help diagnosing your Ultimaker.
What exactly your issue is, is still kinda unclear to me from your post.
About the spool holder, since the development of dual extrusion was stopped there was no need for the bigger spool holder (fitting 2 reels). The smaller the full dimensions of the machine, the more spaces it would fit in. And it allows for less movement of the reel or filament wrapping around the spool holder.
If you want a bigger one, I would indeed recommend to print a bigger reel holder.
