S5 Print Cores

Recommended Posts

I did a search and see no associated threads.

 

1. Is there a way to simply prime the Print Core; meaning can you simply command material to flow through them?

 

2. When cleaning a Print Core the process begins with a hot pull then cold pull; can you simply stop after the hot pull or do you have to continue through the cold pull too.

 

Thank you

The easiest and quickest way for all of this is just to do it manually imho, then you have full control. You can just go in the menu and heat the CORE to the temperature you need. On the S5 (love that new feeder) just open the feeder and push material in. On the UM3  (and 2+) use this thing to push material without hurting your fingers;

    • "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.
