Printing with no filament in bays

by RichTrix

Hiya guys

I am having a bit of an issue. brought two MakerBot labs extruders for our method. Only takes one! Seriously MakerBot your onto a good thing! let us use two!

The problem I am having is I have my custom filament loaded through the AUX port I am only printing one material I do not want any support of any kind!
The method will not let me print as its saying its out of filament in the bays!!! I am hoping its something really silly I am missing

Z Axis Levelling

by 3D-Designs

I have a Makerbot Replicator+ 5th gen
I'm having issues with properly levelling the Z-Axis.
I've followed all the calibration steps with Z calibration and Z-Axis offset.
the calibration also references 2 points - back right and back centre.
The issue is when it prints, pretty much anywhere on the bed, I have adhesion issues some part stick some parts don't.
I've adjusted the Z-axis offset in increments, and I'm still having the same issue.
Is there a way of doing a Z calibration which uses more of the available points on the print bed? instead of just 2?
I'm printing with PLA straight onto the MakerBot print bed, this issues happens without or without a raft

Main issue

Prints don't adhere well to the print bed
I've adjusted Z-offset in increments still having the same issues
Is there an option for advanced Z Calibration which uses more points on the print bed?
