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.

    • "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.
