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.

    • "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.
