using UM5 without spool holder


Recommended Posts

Posted · using UM5 without spool holder

I've been using my UM5 successfully for some time now  without spool holder. After latest update it starts complaining : NFC spoolholder error

How can I ignore or override this?


(The spool holder is really in an inconvenient place (I have little room) and I prefer having the spools on a shelf below the printer and it works, just not detecting the filament though. )

    What about keeping the NFC sensor cable plugged in the printer, eventually taking the sensor out of the spoolholder and putting it somewhere near the printer, where it doesn't disturb?
