When the FDM printer is working, filament is deposited layer by layer onto the build platform, allowing your ideas to quickly become reality. However, for some big size 3D prints, we may need to replace the filament halfway through the process. Anycubic Kobra 2 Fast 3D printer is equipped with filament run-out sensor to help users detect printing problems, support printing recovery, and prevent printing failures. Read on as we provide more information about the filament run-out sensor, and a step-by-step guide to changing filament for Anycubic Kobra 2.
Filament Run-out Sensor of Anycubic Kobra 2
A continuous supply of filament is critical to the success of FDM 3D printing. Anycubic Kobra 2 is equipped with smart sensors that can effectively solve this problem. Users do not need to worry about running out of filament or unexpected power outages. In the event of a printing problem, the printer will automatically detect it and pause printing. Users can solve the problem before resuming printing, such as replacing the printer with new filament, which can effectively avoid printing failures and reduce time waste.
How to Change Filament for Anycubic Kobra 2
When the filament sensor is detected during printing, the filament is about to be consumed, the printing process is paused and a reminder pops up. How to replace the filament during printing, please follow the steps below, or contact the support team for more support.
Step 1: Press the quick connector of the filament tube by hand, and pull out the filament tube. Press and hold the quick connector handle at the interface of the print head filament tube, and pull out the remaining filament.
Step 2: Reconnect the filament tubing. Take out the new filament, pass the filament through the filament sensor and then into the filament tube.
Step 3: When pushing the filament to the printed head position, press out the handle of the printed head, and continue to promote the filament until you could see the filament in the nozzle. After that, the printer can continue to print.
