filament skipped out of the nozzle in two pieces.....i don't know how to fix it.

Recommended Posts

I think there is a clog in the nozzle, some filament is still stuck inside the nozzle/bowden tube, due to breaking when trying to remove it all.

Depending on your printer I'd say the best way is to heat up the printer to 260 degrees C or so, and either try pushing the filament out again, or take the hot end apart and the removing the clog(probably the melted plastic went up to far and cooled down in a higher part of the printer.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
