Do you mean swapping filament during a same print?
I think the feeder has simply not being designed for swapping during a print so I don't know what kind of documentation you can expect...
Do you want to do it if you are out of filament? Or to change color in the middle?
If it is to change color, I think people doing it pause the print, remove the current filament, feed the new one and prime it manually a little and then resume the print. The trick being to get back to the good position of printing.
Seems there is also this plugin: http://wiki.ultimaker.com/CuraPlugin:_ChangeFilamentAtZ
Also, it looks like a new option is being tested in the dev version of Marlin, especially to make it easier: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/ultimaker/AeI1B2YWGr8
I'm curious of the feedback if you give it a try!
Alright, never mind. I "fixed" it. I had to take apart the entire material feeder though. Talk about the good first time experience. I think filament swapping needs to be documented better.
