  • EMUTAG for XYZ Da Vinci Printers (Jr & Mini)

    Found the details regarding the power in the EMUTAG. It has an "automatic power saving feature reducing power consumption to almost zero when the electromagnetic field of a reader is not acting on the antenna."That's pretty nifty! (Maybe I'm just showing my lack of knowledge here, haha.)Again, thank you for answering my questions. I shall be ordering the parts and reading up on it some more throughout the day!

    Ah makes sense! I will still share my tag details to the community so it can be added to the CSV file, and I would love to donate a little to your efforts in all this.If you don’t mind, just a couple other things about the tag and its use within the printer.Again, I’ve reread the “one small downside” over and over. Just need some more clarification, please. AKA some rookie questions. (For which I apologise!)In theory, the EMUTAG could remain in the printer for years? As long as you follow the two methods you mentioned above (removing the EMUTAG when not printing and switching the printer off).How fast do you have to remove the EMUTAG from the printer when not printing? Say, unloading a spool or setting it up for a print. Is there much wiggle room?Would the EMUTAG...see more »Ah makes sense!

Say, unloading a spool or setting it up for a print. Is there much wiggle room?Would the EMUTAG internal batteries get charged by the NFC reader once printing begins?When the EMUTAG is removed from the printer and stored away, it doesn’t use battery power or reset the details?I read in a few places about never letting the tags read 0m left on the spool. Is this the same with an EMUTAG?Once the EMUTAG reads low spoolage, does it then require a reset with new UID details? Or is there a work-around (to date) to continue using the same UID but reset the spool count?

    I'm very new to this scene. I've read many threads from yourself and others about using other filaments in the XYZ printers. I've lost count how many times I've reread threads on the soliforum. I can see the extensive research and dedication you have put into this, and I appreciate the help you are providing for me and others.I apologise in advance if I've overlooked details that you have already explained or have been said in other posts. Things have only just started to click and I wanted to make sure I was on the right track before purchasing anything.I own a daVinci Jr. 1.0 on 2.2.7 firmware. I have a new tag from XYZ filament that has never touched the printer.To clarify, what I will need to do is purchase an EMUTAG - NTAG213, an Arduino UNO, PN532 card and the software for the Ard...see more »I'm very new to this scene.

Things have only just started to click and I wanted to make sure I was on the right track before purchasing anything.I own a daVinci Jr. 1.0 on 2.2.7 firmware. I have a new tag from XYZ filament that has never touched the printer.To clarify, what I will need to do is purchase an EMUTAG - NTAG213, an Arduino UNO, PN532 card and the software for the Arduino.Are these the correct steps to take?- Connect the Arduino UNO to the PN532 card.- Connect the Arduino to my PC via USB.- Install the software to the Arduino.- Scan the daVinci tag and obtain the password from you guys on the forum (of course a donation will be made no matter if I need to or not!)- Then load up the .net app. Scan the EMUTAG and input the UID, Password and Pack from the daVinci tag used in the previous step.If all goes to plan, it's done?I would then need to remove the spool holder from the printer to expose the printers NFC reader. Then use a holder to store the printers reader and the EMUTAG together.Sorry, it's such a long message. I hope it doesn't annoy. Thank you!
