Ultimaker CPE Atomic Method

Recommended Posts

My Ultimaker 2+ just recently arrived and I've been trying out different prints with different settings to learn the most of it. Recently I started working with Ultimakers own CPE filament and I've been having difficulties trying to use the Atomic Method to clean out the nozzles, I can't seem to narrow down the correct temperature to get it off cleanly. Any tips? For this problem or a starting enthusiast in general :)

Thanks for the welcome and the quick answer.

I have been using Atomic Pull with PLA but I've had trouble getting CPE to bond properly with it and with the different temperatures required with each material I thought it had slim chances of working. I guess I can feed the nozzle enough PLA to get all the CPE out before performing the pull but I thought I could just use the method with a piece of CPE as well.
