Hello All,

just one question, to make sure that I've understood it correctly:

- If Ultimaker Filament Material is used, the printer and Cura software would be able to recognize the material.

I'm using the Ultimaker 3 Extended with original Ultimaker PLA Orange, but I have to teach the material in the printer and Cura.

Is there anything that I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in Advance!

    Hi @Blomix-3D,

    welcome to the forums! In the reelholder of the Ultimaker 3 is an NFC scanner, and it should read the tag in the new Ultimaker filament reels. They are white, and you should be able to see the tag in a cardboard insert.

    Have you been able to read other materials, except PLA?

    Are you sure the cable is properly inserted, as instructed in the manual?

    Looking forward hearing from you :)
