Posted · How to resume print after filament runs out?

Hi guys.I have a question and need some help. I printed a model last Friday and when I come back to check this morning, it had ran out of filament. I'm fairly new to this so what should I do? Is it possible to resume the print? I used Ultimaker 3.

 

Thanks!

    I don't have an UM3, and never ran out of filament while printing, so I can't comment on that.

     

    But if the printer has been "printing" dry,  then it is possible that the last piece of molten filament has been sitting at hot temperature in the nozzle for a long time, and that it got burned, and may have clogged the nozzle. So I would first make sure that the nozzle is not clogged, and thoroughly clean it, before restarting any print.

    Hi. Thank you for your response. As you said, the nozzle got clogged. I got help with IT friend so he did it for me but unfortunately I can continue the print. Thanks anyway. Cheers!
