Wood Filament stopped extruding halfway through the printing process

Posted · Wood Filament stopped extruding halfway through the printing process

I use speed, temperature and retraction according to what colorfabb suggested ( http://learn.colorfabb.com/how-to-print-with-woodfill/ ). I am using 0.4mm Nozzle, 0.27mm layerheight, 105% material flow, 205C nozzle temperature, 70mm/s speed. The first 3 prints are printed fine, however, when the 4th one is printing, the printer suddenly stopped extruding and black liquid came out after more than 5 hours had passed. So, I cleaned it using the atomic method and the charred part comes out of the nozzle. The STL files has been checked, it’s water-tight, no errors. So, it might be the nozzle problem, but we are not exactly sure about it. Does anyone know why this is happening?

    Almost surely it's clogged. The pieces of wood can get stuck in the nozzle tip. I recommend you print with .6mm nozzle or larger for this reason. Do you have an olsson block such that you can change nozzles? If not I sell them here:

    If you do have the Olsson block you can just unscrew the existing nozzle (while hot - at 150C or warmer) and check it and maybe burn it out in a gas flame until everything in the nozzle is burnt to ash.

    Yes, apparently it is clogged. I do have olsson block. I guess it is possible to print using 0.4 nozzle with wood filament until a certain amount, then it'll start clogging, but recommended to use 0.6?

    Thanks gr5!

    Yes I have been trying to print with this stuff as well. The bamboo fill. Its a total nightmare, worst clogging I have ever experienced, black stuff spewing out everywhere.

    Ill have to get myself an Olsson block and try a bigger nozzle.

    Indeed it's possible to print woodfill with a 0.4mm nozzle but it increases a lot the chance of clogging the nozzle.

    I print a lot of woodfill with a 0.6mm nozzle and have no issues at all!
