Colorfabb Clear Green PLA PHA not printing

Posted · Colorfabb Clear Green PLA PHA not printing

So this is likely a topic done to death, but the new forum has made searching so hard,

so i recently capitalised on ultimakers sale where they were trying to get rid of old stick, and with that i ordered some clear, but it does not seem to want to print, the knurled bolt just grinds, no matter how loose or tight i have the wheel that applies pressure set,

printing at 220c, 40mm/s. on ultimaker original V1 (kit built)

when i go to the Ulti-controller and choose to extrude filament, it work perfectly fine, its just when its under pressure of the printing bed it wont feed. maybe just lower the print bed slightly?

since switching back to some lovely colorfabb leaf green, its printing fine, so i doubt there is a jam anywhere?

any tips? i bet GR5 has some all encompassing tutorial somewhere!

    Hello 0235,

    The title of this post might be wrong, I read that ColorFabb is printing fine, the transparent of Ultimaker not.

    "since switching back to some lovely colorfabb leaf green, its printing fine"

    Since extruding with the ulticontroller is going fine thit seems there is no problem with your knurled bolt, spring tension on that bolt, bowden tube or nozzle.

    As you say it yourself, just turn the threaded rod at the clamp a little down when the print starts.

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...

        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
