Black flex PLA filament stuck in feeder

Recommended Posts

Posted · Black flex PLA filament stuck in feeder

Hi there

I tried to load the black flex PLA from Ultimaker and it would not pull through the feeder into the tube. After reversing it and trying again it became clear that a piece was stuck in the feeder. You can see it but I cannot get it out. Any ideas which screws to remove to get it out?

Probably all of them

Pay attention that the screws hold the feeder motor. to prevent it from falling down you can put something in the hole where the cables goes. or you ll need to remove the motor cover (2 screws)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
