  1. After posting on the forum it came to mind that the blockage would be happening above the nozzle. So i let it cool and took the nozzle off; sure enough there was a small piece of filament that was stuck there and i pushed it up from the bottom. Went on and performed the atomic method twice and now printing again. Thanks for the help. PS: no es mi idioma, solo vivo en Espana, y me da casi igual cual de las dos idiomas hablo, pero prefiero el ingles. Gracias.
  2. Hello, I was in the process of printing a ±30 hour print and it stopped 5 hours away from finishing. I noticed the nozzle is blocked so i tried to apply the atomic method to clear it up but it was unsuccessful. Every time I put the filament in trough the top it seems like it doesnt reach the nozzle and i cant proceed with atomic method. I tried using acupuncture needles and sewing needles from the bottom but that was unsuccessful as well. I am a bit frustrated, since it is an important project for me, and I tried everything. At this point ordering a new nozzle would not help because it would take too long. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. PS: I should mention that I am using a hemp based biodegradable plastic filament, which we make ourselves. Printed lots of big and small prints with it, never had a problem like this; the atomic method always seemed to do the job. Regards, Alex.
