Can the bowden tube get stuck?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Can the bowden tube get stuck?

I had numerous problems where not enough material gets extruded. Either the a plug formed (I think I solved this with owens clamp) or the filament got stuck in the tube. Now I noticed that I cant push the filament through the tube at all. I used to be able to just push it through but suddeny I cant anymore. Could it be that the tube changed its shape?

    If you clamp down the 4 mount screws on the head too hard, the tube gets pushed into the peek part too hard, deforms and restricts the filament to a point where it can't get through anymore. if you push it through by hand, you should see and feel where the obstruction is exactly. the same with owens clamp (i think).

        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.
