Material station


Recommended Posts

Posted · Material station

Does anyone know if you can select which material location you want to print from on the material station i.e I have 6 different colours/ materials loaded and I want to print from spool C which is red or spool E which is PetG rather than loading the required spool into slot a or removing all other spools Thanks

    The S5 picks the corresponding material itself, i.e. select the material in Cura and everything goes automatically as long as the printer knows there is a difference between the spools. For Ultimaker materials, material types and color is a difference. If you are using third party materials, you usually have no separation between colors, just between material types. In that case the printer will pick that spool of all  spools in question which has been inserted first.
