The Da Vinci Open Smart Tag allows you to turn your NFC tag compatible XYZ printing 3D printer into an Open filament printer. It will increase the versatility of your printer by allowing you to use filaments from different brands.
Steps for installing the Smart Tag
- Install the smart tag on to the filament spool or on your filament spool holder
- Update your XYZprint to the latest version
- go to Dashboard > Filament to register the smart tag
You will only require one smart tag per printer.
Note that XYZ smart tag becomes registered with a particular print so it cannot be moved between printers. Also the smart tag will not enable you to print with materials that are not compatible with the specifications of your printer. For example, you will not be able to start printing with Nylon if your printer was not able to print with this material in the first place as you will not necessarily be able to get the extruder temperature up to the temperature required for Nylon. You must also still use CPLA to print in colour on the Da Vinci color range.
Also note, the open smart tag is not compatible with the Da Vinci Junior Mix.
