Material will not dispense from nozzle


Recommended Posts

Posted · Material will not dispense from nozzle

When printing I noticed that the extruder one was not printing the material, I tried to calibrate the print head to make sure that it wasnt just that specfic print job. I also tried to change the material but the material would not reverse from the nozzle for me to change it. I have a Ultimaker 3, can anyone help?

    You may have to pull the bowden tube off the clogged extruder at the printhead to get a good pull if @Nicolinux's suggestion does not work from the feeder end.


    Heat the print cores using the set temp controls on the printer first to soften the plastic.
