    Hi, Where can I find your tipe of feeder ? I think I have a problem with the original feeder. It jams all the time.

    you can easily just pull the filament out because of 14.09 firmware revision the stepper motor for the extruder feeder moves easily,

    This works with the standard extruder its easy to pull out the old and push in the new filament

    I would advice not to use the standard feeder for this. When you pull the fillament out a long strand of plastics will often stay behind in your bowden, or worse you end up with bits of plastic in your feeder.

    It's (IMHO) way better to use a feeder you can open and clean ... here's some links ....
