Thanks for that. There's nothing in the manual about it and its not shown in the "What's in the box" page. I assumed it was some sort of test or calibration aid.

Just had a look and I can see where it fits. It doesn't want to go in though, but its printing at the moment and I don't want to disturb it too much. I'll fit it later.

    Actually, the filament guide is very good to use even for single extrusion.

    When having fresh rolls that barely fit a spool they are helpful, as well as for very long prints when the a complete roll of filament is not perfectly rolled up.

    See this thread for more examples:


    (Ultimaker started shipping it after I, Ian and others reported that is was really needed/useful).

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
