Wood Filament stopped extruding halfway through the printing process

Recommended Posts

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.

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
