Reset Material Meters

Eiger’s estimate of remaining print material is deliberately conservative. To improve the accuracy of material metering, you can re-weigh your spool without unloading material by using the Reset Plastic Meter and Reset Fiber Meter utilities.

  1. Select Menu > Materials > Reset Plastic Meter or Reset Fiber Meter.
  2. Carefully remove the appropriate spool from the drybox or printer, setting aside the spindle. Do not unload the filament from the printer.
  3. Weigh the spool as normal.
  4. Enter the new spool weight at the prompt, then press Done.
  5. Replace the spindle and carefully replace the spool, making sure the filament is wound back onto the spool as normal to prevent any slack in the line.
