Material Station Extruding / Prime Material


Recommended Posts

Posted · Material Station Extruding / Prime Material



using the UM Material Station, the unit loads and extrudes / primes the material, on each print job and unload the material after that. Can this anyhow been set that the material stays loaded unless a different material / filament is been selected for the next print ?

    I suspect that one gotcha is that the printer *may* be powered off between prints. It pretty much forgets everything when that happens. As a result "keep it loaded" would have to be the default / only option. I'd be fine with that. Put another way, let it operate the same way as the S5 all by it's self operates .....
