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.

    • "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.
