What 2 Do w/End Pieces

Recommended Posts

Posted · What 2 Do w/End Pieces



I keep ending up with pieces of less than 1m length filament on my spools.  I would like to use them for more printing.  What is out there to help make them useful?  


Another idea is why can't CURA tell me how long of a filament piece do I need to print things?  IF I had a note on CURA screen telling me I only need 80cm to print I could stop throwing away good filament.

    Oh wow, is that one of the Cura 4 interface "improvements"? Because up to 3.6, after slicing it displays filament length and grams of filament immediately. 


    Way to go, @Ultimaker - making the interface as stupid as possible, seemingly.
