UM3 printing in single material mode

Is there a way to turn off the 2nd extruder and only print in single material mode with the UM3? The PLV gets hot, and plugs up. I have unselected the "enable support" box but still gets hot. Need to purge or atomic purge the nozzle before I use it every time. Many prints don't require support so it would be nice to just make sure its off.

    Make sure support is not only unselected, but that it is coupled to extruder 1. So first turn on support, select extruder 1, and unselect it again.

    Also, make sure that brim/skirt is printed with extruder 1.

    Not very logical, but this is how it works now.

    Just thinking, did you try if you can make/update a nozzle 1 only (or nozzle2 only) profile after you did this trick, so we have a quick solution until the bug gets fixed?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
