Too Many Materials detected? Here's a fix.

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
