No filament extruding and nozzle not clogged

Recommended Posts

Posted · No filament extruding and nozzle not clogged

Every time I change a filament (PLA) from one color to another, the material does not advance out of the nozzle. After flushing the nozzle and clearly seeing through the hole, I continue the process of "changing material" again. The filament usually does not extrude when the "wait" message is displayed. I repeat the process of "changing material" several times. Sometimes it advances and material does extrude and then I advance onto "printing" an object. Sometimes it does not and I continue to "print" anyway and try to "tune" the "flow". This usually does not work.Has anyone had a problem like this? Any suggestions as to what I should do?

Many thanks!

I recommend you cut the tip of the new filament at an angle from 3 different angles so that it has a pointy tip. If you don't do this then it can easily get caught up inside the head at several junctures such as at beginning or end of isolator.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
