Too Many Materials detected? Here's a fix.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Too Many Materials detected? Here's a fix.

New UM3E arrived 2 Fridays ago.

#veryexcited!

Since it arrived I got an error message on the lcd screen: "Detected too many new materials. Ensure only 1 new material is present."

HERE IS THE SOLUTION:  I had all my spare spools of "Ultimaker Brand" material sitting next to my U3E, and guess what!?! 

Did you know that the sensor for the material is actually on the spools?

Did you know that the reader for the sensor is in the cantilevered spool holder arm?

So, if you have any rolls/spools of material sitting near or next to or under your U3E it will sense them.

 

Actually my U3E is on a table that is 20" off the ground and my extra spools, still in the box, were under and just to the side, approximately 24" away.

The sensor, is that sensitive, I guess. 

 

Move your material and it may just fix this issue.  It did for me.
