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.

Mine often runs with just one material loaded. Sometimes cura see it as dual extrusion when it isn't.

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!

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
