Loading material on the Ultimaker 2+

Before you can start printing on the Ultimaker 2+, you need to load material into the printer. For the first use it is recommended to use the spool of PLA that came with the Ultimaker 2+.

Placing the material spool

  1. Place the spool with the material on the spool holder. Make sure to put it with the material in counter-clockwise direction, so that the material can enter the feeder from the bottom
  2. Wait for the Ultimaker 2+ to heat up the nozzle


Inserting the material

  1. Insert the material into the feeder and gently push it until the material is grabbed by the feeder and is visible in the Bowden tube. Select confirm to continue

    Note: Straighten the end of the material a bit so it can easily enter the feeder.

  2. Confirm when the new material extrudes from the nozzle
