s5 won't feed both lines of filament

Posted · s5 won't feed both lines of filament

The first filament loads fine the dual filament of any kind - PLA, breakaway, etc - always gets to the feeder before being transferred to the bowden tubes and stops. It's as if the gears inside the box aren't working. I have taken the box cover off, looked for any obstructions and can't find any. Please help.

    I assume that you always cut the ends on the fimament with the supplied pliers.

    Also that the lever of the feeder is closed. Or that the lever has a small but noticeable resistance when closing the lever.

    Normally, the feeder of the printer takes over at this point. If it does not make contact with the filament, it will not work.

    Just one idea

    The bowden goes deep into the sensor at the back wall of the material station?

    The Bowden goes there deeper than with the normal clamps.

        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.
