Just got my printer, got it together and today tried loading the filament it shipped with. Had a heck of at time getting it to feed into the bowden tube. Cut and recut the filament at 45 degrees but just couldn't get it. Opened the extruder (whoever designed this extruder is a monster) and was able to feed the filament through the tiny hole into the tube. Put the extruder back together, but the filament wouldn't budge, had the extruder clip in the open position. Nothing I tried would move it an inch. Opened the extruder again, was then able to feed the filament down the hot end and manually extrude some filament. Put it back together again. Tried to use the menu to feed filament, no go, tried printing, nothing, tried manually extruding or retracting, with the extruder clip open, nothing. Am I doing something wrong? Is there something else I should be adjusting in the extruder? Not sure what to do next, or what could be wrong.

Can not extrude or retract filament
RE: New to 3D Printing - Filament not being fed during print
@dermaestro This may be stupid but shouldn't the extruder clip be in the other position? From your video it appears to be in the open position which will let you manually extrude filament but the extruder won't be gripping the filament. Apologies if you already new that and it was just open for the demo.
