S5 Change material type without loading / unloading


Recommended Posts

Posted · S5 Change material type without loading / unloading

Is it possible to change the current generic filament type on the S5 without doing the load / unload process? I chose PLA but is is PLA+ which is more like Tough PLA.

 

It is a waste of time to go through the load / unload process.

    Yes it should be possible to change the type of the material. I am not at my printer at the moment, but check the menu there should be an option to do it. I used it in the past, so it must be there.

    Yeah the secret of the 3 dots, I know it well when you look for something, cannot find it and in the end it is well hidden behind the 3 dots 🙂

     

    Glad I could help....
