CR-10 V3 Changing filament

  • I have just got my printer and was wondering
    what is the excepted method of swapping / changing from one filament to another?
    As far as I know it does not have an unload function or am I wrong?

    any help will be greatly appreciated.


  • I'm pretty new to this myself, but as no one has answered so far, this is what I do;

    • pre-heat the hot-end (185'C for PLA)
    • while its heating up, raise the print-head to (say) z = 100mm via the menu
    • once heated, rotate the cog on the print-head forward and insure that hot plastic is extruded (i.e. no blockage), and then remove the extruded piece of plastic
    • rotate the cog backwards while holding the filament with the other hand, pulling lightly to sense that the filament is coming out
    • once the filament is free of the jaws, you will be able to just pull it out
    • re-load new filament

    I hope that helps.
