Filament gauge?


#1

Just curious, how does the Inventure determine filament levels? I started a print job with plenty of material and then ran out of support minutes later. I was obviously almost out of filament from the beginning but the machine indicated that I had over 1/4 of a spool remaining. Any thoughts?

Hello,

The printer recognizes how much material is left on the spool thanks to the RFID sticker (on the cartridge). It is the actual amount of the support material in the cartridge minus weight of support material used for particular prints (calculated by Z-SUITE). So this does not include the filament used during the loading process or the material you removed manually (for example tangled material). I hope this is quite clear. However, if the RFID sticker is damaged - it will not indicate the level of the material correctly.

Best regards,
