It is important to adjust the feeder tension when using BASF Forward AM Ultrafuse®17-4 PH and the Ultrafuse® Support Layer on your Ultimaker printer.
Adjusting the feeder tension is critical because:
- The default feeder tension can cause grinding of the filament and potentially damage the hardware components
- Too low tension can show inconsistent flow of the material
Use the 2 mm hex screwdriver supplied with your Ultimaker printer to lower the feeder tension to the top half, as illustrated in the image below.
Tip: Remember to adjust the feeder tension back to default when switching to a different material.
