Preparing the hot end with ABS

Recommended Posts

I had to email UM support to find out what the short length of ABS that came in the kit was to be used for, and subsequently have noticed a couple of posts regarding initial extrusions with ABS as a mechanism for possibly reducing PLA plugs.

This isn't mentioned anywhere in the assembly instructions, and I've not yet done it because the printer is functioning well and I'm loathe to touch it.

What is the general consensus on doing this, and if its a good idea then shouldn't it at least be recommended in the wiki pages relating to "your first print"?
