S5 Material Manager - Changing filament mid print?


Recommended Posts

Posted · S5 Material Manager - Changing filament mid print?

I was doing a large print and ran out of Magenta PLA.  I thought the machine would let me go to another spook of PLA but it would only accept magenta PLA.  I finally faked it out by loading the empty spool of magenta in the bay but feeding the green PLA into the feeder and then swapping the spools.

 

Am I missing something or is the only way to get it to swap to another spool of the same material type is to put it in as generic and not let it read the NFC tag?  I was hoping I would be able to select which spool to use next.

There's always hope.... and firmware can evolve over time.

BTW: a complaint "feature request" 😏 direct via your reseller can accelerate those things sometimes (if there is enough demand).

But at the moment that's the only way (AFAIK). 🙄
