OPERATION A

  • Set the nozzle temperature to the material extrusion temperature (e.g. 200°C for PLA and 240°C for ABS). To do this, go to the printer's menu and select: Menu > Control > Temperature > Nozzle > set the temperature.
  • Load the extruder with filament as usual.
  • Turn the thread puller knob counterclockwise to start extrusion and clockwise to retract the filament. Alternate these motions, emphasizing extrusion, until you see clean filament coming out of the nozzle.

OPERATION B

  • Set the nozzle temperature to the material extrusion temperature (e.g. 200°C for PLA and 240°C for ABS). To do this, go to the printer's menu and select: Menu > Control > Temperature > Nozzle > set the temperature.
  • If the wire struggles to be extruded, there may be a small particle or blockage in the nozzle. Use a fine needle to gently remove these particles from the nozzle.

OPERATION C

  • Set the nozzle temperature to the material extrusion temperature (e.g. 200°C for PLA and 240°C for ABS). To do this, go to the printer's menu and select: Menu > Control > Temperature > Nozzle > set the temperature.
  • Press down on the quick coupling ring located at the top of the extruder.
  • Slide the connecting tube between the extruder and the thread puller upwards.
  • Insert the PLA filament directly from the top into the hole of the extruder and manually push it down until the extrusion begins.

OPERATION D

  • Set the nozzle temperature to the material extrusion temperature (e.g. 200°C for PLA and 240°C for ABS). To do this, go to the printer's menu and select: Menu > Control > Temperature > Nozzle > set the temperature.
  • Press down on the quick coupling ring located at the top of the extruder.
  • Slide the connecting tube between the extruder and the thread puller upwards.
  • Insert a steel wire with a diameter of 2 mm inside the steel barrel of the extruder.

Push the steel wire down until you remove any blockages or material residue that may be clogging the steel barrel.
