a cold pull is usually done with whatever filament you have been using, so briefly you remove the Bowden tube, heat the head to higher than usual temp, hand push filament through the nozzle, set the temperature to a low temp (for PLA about 95degrees), then pull out the filament - it should remove any stuck filament from inside the nozzle.

 

It can be helpful to use a different color filament for this process as you may then see the removed stuck filament

    I can't seem to push any material trough on the low temperature, and it also doesn't look like my cold filament is melting. And it also doesn't feel warm to the touch. Here is a picture of the nozzle, I think it looks completely clogged.3qGmZhZ7cDwRZY8Y4ljFKaDr5tlACSbjsRxDGX7vgcZpgiXDCFVVcKCRpZ7ftY_CFxsW4tbqHAXf4eDE3-uiRuCqDPnUYP5qtKLNEzeAyQx19bkxWVvnZLwIv4udM4LD1EP_mqk0sBEL2V-EjKyt5XkWtUF_Rpk0O8Iy4dhP6wnnhn008iA3iJFhQ2xRfxtA8o1hjg14Lh3qTEbn1YyZSCf77X5-_ydrhPf41LL3wrVjCoTKCqrxqdXIVGrKerY1pXf7hpXIKiOPZmlhXUdeiaxovNp3e4yv6anlEuDnqf8HZupLrzHGqOPwlvrhhTm6xf18FKq2u1WQzX1e7vn4r1yUza6-LcFbatbWliuqlhXqRXYWl7hzrEgRf6BHEEaKEomazscO3BScBY3eZRzeyNDW9-GOFjOeEXDdDHqc7SFonnmretZ0muGYvqZkCp2O_vi5kea614dYFkr7XQ0jPCl_39ZUU7tvrq_YROUfOMAZlBeJ-ePVyezgLCZO330Tg3qGLCvlgbxzUyrj_6qBkapSgNlKqCB3VMGFD_Al9TKvtu_eDGOQv0H9KcoybMFsPmzhAldQ4LdptqNpwA6HTHtrtHZI_VtaKywddpAQJMdguOnffNVYYfRS07JxPLMl-SDAGzN_CWVZSg-669ZHfngZpk07PDjx-MkxJi1h0JAjtm4Rjh1JnnSNKx222zOzbHElldZ09ts-GJ7iimZJ1XypbvwAkA0TcCZW8IiDeRD7OMb6ut_EPd1ex41aFZiNZCifjpK_TXDwDex8vAo3DItroc7SCY54MkqOWOGF5CdK8X2DKZGVdPh8VpgSGBNuutc_cbVtjcApc7DRtFKk7gBy7GUaMSRmjstFGsx2W4aeEHoJUklSaUzdTBeZE4Zc-JkvOl12VY6P0EJQVIDwEb3nL7uotRV9H1BYrqJMAU6dy7XSyA=w608-h809-no?authuser=0

    @joostttbosman I am sorry to read that you are experiencing issues with your print. I cannot access the picture you shared. In order to better understand what is going on it would help if you could share a picture of the failed print. 

     

    Best regards,

     

    Jos

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
