Third party Material not feeding


Recommended Posts

Posted · Third party Material not feeding



I have some ColorFabb_XT that we got because it was food safe.  It has a dia. of 2.85 and I am using a AA0.4 printhead.  The material does not feed.  Has anyone any clue as to what I might try?


I have read that the "Processing temp is 240 - 260 and manually set 240 it in Cura.  All I am getting is a very fine, un-continues  feed?

    Have you checked the feeder tension? If too much it will grind up the filament, too loose and it does not grab enough to feed the filament.

    Check to see if the core does not require a hot/cold pull.


    That is all I have right now off the top of my head. If I think of more I will amend this post 🙂
