Filament won't go through feeding mechanism

Recommended Posts

I had been having extrusion problems so I disassembled the feeding mechanism to see if anything was clogging it up. When I put it back together and screwed it back in, the filament would get jammed up before reaching the feeding mechanism. It doesn't seem to be aligned wrong but I don't know what else to try out.

Any ideas?

Did you mix the direction of the bowden tube? The one on the feeder end has a 45 degree bevel on the inside of the tube so the filament is guided into it. The nozzle end of the tube is just straight. If you mixed them up there's a chance that the filament will just hit the edge of the tube and stop.

    • "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.
