Material unrolled into a garden hose

Recommended Posts

Just winding it up again might work, while gently guiding the filament by hand. If it is not tangled too much, it might just snap back onto the spool with a little help. At least it does so for my PLA.

Otherwise remove the spool from the machine, walk it down your room, hall, garden and street until the filament is all straightened out, and from there wind it up again. :)

Or cut off the unwound piece from the spool and use it up like it is.
