Hello,

I have problems extruding black ABS ONLY!!

I have 2 black ABS filaments and whenever I use them specifically it causes clogging and under extrusion. No problems with any other type/color of filament.

Anyone has a clue about this?

Thanks

    I had issues with some china ABS. the diameter was not constant and was causing a lot of friction in the bowden tube. If the filament get grind by the feeder you may have a similar problem. I have resolved my issue by changing to Orbi-tech ABS filament.

    What is the diameter of that filament? What temperature are you using?

    I am also using black um abs. I print at 250. I had 1 clog when I switched from pla to abs. Cleaned the heater/nozzle and it was fine again.

     

    Thanks I guess it needed a little bit cleaning. I disassembled the head cleaned the burnt plastic. Worked fine again.
