Now material coming out

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Ive only been running the Ultimaker 2 for a week, and have come across my first problem.

No material is coming out of the nozzle, even though i have a roll of PLA fitted and used the same roll earlier in the week with no probs. I alredy tried the Atomic Method but it isn't working.

Can someone help me

Can you describe your routine at start up?

Did you remove the filament and inspected it? are there holes in the filament and does it have a regular toothmarks pattern?

Does the filament go the nozzle all the way when inserting?

Really difficult to explain without hands on the machine :O

Try doing a 'Change material' from the menu. That should remove the filament, then you can cut the end off and try inserting again. It may be that the tip of the filament is too large to go into the coupler.

 

and how can I solve this with the feeder?
