Using 2 core aa at the same time

Recommended Posts

Posted · Using 2 core aa at the same time

Dear all, 


I wanted to ask you that is it possible to replace core bb with another aa. the sample I am planning to rpint requires two PLA which is not suitable for core bb. so the question is can I use two core aa at the same time ( UM3 extended)?

    of course you can. That's the reason why the UM3 originally is equipped with one BB and two AA cores (the second AA core is meant to replace the BB Core if other material than PVA is printed).



    By the way: it is possible to print PLA with the BB Core, but it is not recommended because of oozing.
