I know there are several ways to use 3rd party on the da vinci jr. However, most of them require seriously changing parts of the printer, or spending tons of money to do so. A common way I have seen was to rewrite the chip using an app on a phone, personally for me, that did not work at all, and ruined the chip all together. So as I was searching for a way to use filament without spending stupid money, I came across this on eBay. And it is a cheap, hassle free way to use 3rd party. Thought I would share.

cheapest way to do it now is order one spool from xyz, update to 2.4.8 and use cura instead of their software, no sdcard or wifi printing, but hey... instant success and no mods, well except removing that pesky spool holder and the one i made works great! :D
