New BB print core shows up as AA

Recommended Posts


I received a new BB print core for our UM3 extended. While I have been waiting for this print core I have had the extra AA print core installed in the second print head slot. Now when I change heads the machine still think it's an AA core installed, complaining about incompability with materials etc.

The print core is brand new and the connectors look clean. I updated to the latest firmware while I was waiting for my new BB print core.

It's possible to program it if you are good with ssh. If you are comfortable with ssh send me an email at gr _at_ gr5.org and I'll send you instructions.

Also look at the nozzle itself very carefully. It should have a tiny AA or BB on the nozzle.

Or you can just send it back to the reseller where you bought it.

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
