End of filament has gone past the material feeder and now it can't be unloaded

Posted · End of filament has gone past the material feeder and now it can't be unloaded

Hi there! I would greatly appreciate if anyone could help me solve this issue with our 3D printer.


The filament in one of the extruders ran out whilst printing and so now the end of the filament has gone up past the material feeder. So now whenever I try to unload the material to put a new roll of filament on it doesn't come out. I've tried loading new filament behind it to "push it along" but it doesn't extrude. I've also tried to detach the tube from the material feeder and the print head to try and get it out that way but I can't figure out how the tube detaches. What should I do to get this material out?

    Here are good step by step instructions how to remove the Bowden tube:



    Additionally you should heat up the nozzle manually via menu to be able to pull out the piece of filament from the head (nozzle)

        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
