Ultimaker Nylon Getting Stuck at End of Print

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker Nylon Getting Stuck at End of Print

I have a problem with Ultimaker Nylon on my S5 w/Material Station where the printer complains about the material getting stuck in the nozzle at the end of the print. The prints are fine. The problem occurs during cool-down when the printer tries to retract the material from the nozzle. The nylon is definitely getting stuck because the gears grind out a chunk of filament. I think it is a temperature issue because when I go through the requested process, the nylon comes out of the nozzle just fine, even though I don't remove the Bowden tubes or anything; I just confirm I've done everything as asked even though I didn't actually do anything. I have had this happen a time or two in the past with other materials, but it is consistent with the nylon. I am going to increase the standby temperature just in case that helps.
