PolyFlex not loading after PLA

Postby jon_bondy » Tue May 15, 2018 6:25 pm

This is my first time with PolyFlex. I removed the PLA, did a cold pull with PLA, and then tried to load the PolyFlex at 245 (per @Julia Truchsess). All I get is clicks from the BondTech extruder. When I return to PLA, it extrudes just fine, so there is no blockage. I assume that there are dregs of PLA that the PolyFlex is unable to move, but I don't see how to clear the extruder.

I did another cold pull and managed to get not only the extruder chamber, but also some of the extruded filament to come out. After that, the PolyFlex started to work properly. I guess you have to get the hang of the cold pull, and know when to use some muscle.

This is the cold pull. It looks quite a bit different than the pictures in the cold pull articles.
