Trouble changing filaments mid-print

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am having a problem with my UM 2+ with changing out and adding in another filament color mid print. it does spit out the filament, but when I try to add in a new color, it spazzes between heating and cooling after the material section menu. I thought it may be the fan causing this, but it still has the same issue when I try it again.

Anyone else had this issue before? Is there a way to resolved it?

Hi DeathMachine,

No, you are not alone for sure! :) I'm using the old firmware from 15.04.6 and this is the best match for an UM2 IMHO.. If I want a predictable print, I'm using Cura 15.04.6 period. I'm also using S3D, but mostly for monitoring the "gcode files" (the model) as this really give you a true picture of what to expect.

Sorry, but the new versions have to many issues, so I'll wait until all this is some stabilized.

Thanks.

Torgeir.

    • "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.
