Ultimaker 2 Quickly Replace Filament

Recommended Posts

It's confusing. So there should be a line or arrow or something on the bowden. What you do is read the menus carefully - first you say load filament or something and it feeds slow. Then when it hits the line on the bowden on the back of the machine you push the button again and it feeds very fast until an inch before the nozzle, then it feeds real slow again with low current and when filament starts coming out you hit the button a third time and it stops.

Something like that.

Hello,

 

I'm afraid I do not understand what is happening. Let me tell you what I understood. Correct me if I'm wrong.

 

If I understand correctly, there is a manipulation to the first use. Namely engage the filament in the extruder and go up the nozzle. You must then go through the menu, as explained above : select "material" and then "change".

 

If it is good, then it is not actually complicated. But in any case thank you for pointing us to this problem. Good novice that I am, it is not certain that I would find one.

 

Thank you for your information, corrections.

 

Cordially.

Alex.

    • 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.
