changing filament umo

Recommended Posts

You just have to reverse the loading process.

Unlatch the tension thing, (the black thing that clips onto the knurled bolt).

-Heat the temperature to 100C (assuming PLA, hotter if you need to pull too hard)

-And then pull the filament from the back.

-And that's it!

The only change I would make to what @valcrow has suggested is the move the print head to a corner.

By doing it as he describes, you are also doing an 'Atomic Pull' so that you are removing the old filament and cleaning the nozzle.  When you remove the filament, look at the end of it and it should be a mold of the inside of the nozzle.  Nice and clean!

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
