UM3 single material printing


Recommended Posts

Posted · UM3 single material printing

It would be awfully nice if the Ultimaker 3 would allow printing with only one material loaded. Most of my print jobs are single material, so the second spool often sits on the back of the printer for extended periods of time. I like to keep my filaments bagged with desiccant so they don't absorb moisture and collect dust.

    Oh, wow. Sorry about that. When I bought my UM3 last year, I did quite a bit of searching on the internet and could not find any way to do this. Before posting, I did another search on this forum and didn't find anything new about it, so I just figured nothing had changed. Thanks!
