So today i finished my ultimaker. But when making i lost the extruder lever. Its very stupid but i cant find it anywhere. And now there is no filament coming out of the hot end.

Is there a way i can get that part or place something there instead?

    What I would do is to keep the feeder closed with some string or a very thick rubber band or whatever you can come up with to keep it closed. Then I'd download the STEP file for the lever and print one out. You can find the design for the lever here:

    The feeder is the whole "package" that hangs off the back of the printer with the little stepper motor and big gear on it. The lever you're missing is used to keep the black thing with a spring closed.

    The black part is the lever.. what you suggested you have misplaced..

    Perhaps you could post a picture of what you have now as a feeder?

    Looks like the part came loose during printing? If so, re-level your bed so that the first layer is pressed harder into the tape.

    Also, it looks like the tape isn't stuck down very good in a few places. Really rub it into the platform so it sticks nicely.

    What Robert said.

    Make sure the first layer is pressed in the tape.

    The first layer should not 'lie' on the tape, but it should be visible.

    Here are some pictures as a reference: http://wiki.ultimaker.com/Calibrate

    In the furture please post pictures here, not imgur (which probably won't host your pic for a year).

    Click "gallery" at the top left of this page, then click blue "upload" button. Then make a post and click "my media" next to smile icon.

      • 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
