    So at Maker Faire NYC I got some of the Multi3D Elictrifi filament, which is a very low resistance copper based conductive filament (0.008ohm/cm) which is pretty amazing. However, the challenge is the temperature range is 140-160c and if I recall the extruder won't even run below 160. Any thoughts? @Alex9779?

    The demo was pretty cool, in that he printed the "wires" to "pads" where the chip or device would go, put the pins of the chip over the pads, and then hit the filament with a hair dryer, which made it soft enough for the chip to sink in, while the Tg of the PLA under it was way higher so didn't soften.

    You can change it in your firmware, compile and flash...
    A quick workaround would be to send M302 either with a console or just put it in your start script. This will allow "cold extrusions" that is just to let you extruder if that minimal temp is not reached yet...

    That sounds like a way better idea (just disable it for that run) thanks. Now of course I have to get dual working again...
