Tension setting for UM2+


Recommended Posts

Posted · Tension setting for UM2+



I've had a few extrusion issues which i've been trying to sort, can anybody please tell me the correct tension setting for UM2+?


I've found conflicting information, one says the marker needs to be at the top another suggests it needs to be adjusted to the middle marker? I know it is a case of trial and error but it would be good to know if it is set to the correct level to begin with!

    Hello. The middle is the default setting, and if your material flow requires you to change that, it's probably a manifestation of something else.
