You should have received a print made form the printer when you got it. That would show that the nozzles worked at least at the reseller's location.

The second thing is if the material is inserted all the way through the core.

One thing you can do is to remove the bowden tube from the nozzles and do a hot pull or cold pull. You could also try to make sure that material flows through it by pushing some filament through. Just make sure the printhead is in a corner so that it gets maximum support and you do not bend the axis rods.

Here is a link to specifics. Also, if you do not have any cleaning rods, it can be done with PLA in both the AA and BB cores. I am assuming that is what you have on hand since it is brand new and that comes standard with the printer. If you have put ABS or another hard material through it, you will have to go to higher temps and such.

    • 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.
