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
- 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
- Wait for the Ultimaker 2+ to heat up the nozzle
Inserting the material
- 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.
- Confirm when the new material extrudes from the nozzle
