Printing With One Filament?

Postby PaulXTiseo » Mon Nov 22, 2021 4:03 pm

Hi,

Newbie here. I'm trying to print a simple project. I have loaded PLA filament into the left extruder, nothing on the right. I believe I have set everything to the left extruder in IdeaMaker, then sliced. It seems like it prints the raft or some first layers and then I get: "The current task has been paused by the filament monitor." What should I do?

Can you share the Gcode file for the print so It can be reviewed?

Ryan, Paul has a problem on sensor filament that doesn't see filament inside and the PRO2 goes in pause.

Try switching the left and right filament sensors to get back to work. If that fixes it, order a replacement sensor.

Perhaps, before reordering the sensor Paul can check if the screws on the sensor are a little loose and register better; sometimes could be that the issue.

If you are using Yellow PLA that might be the problem.

I had an E2 and if I put the RAISE 3D Yellow PLA in it I constantly got the out of filament warnings, swapping sensors over and even fitting new sensors made no differemce.
