    Hello everyone,

    I have had alot of extruder skipping with my e3d v6 bowden. Right now, it might be possible, that because of alot assembly/disassembly, PTFE tube was not aligned properly, and some filament might be stuck in heatbreak. Any ideas, how to clean it out properly? Filament used was Colorfabb PLA. Thanks

    Hey there, what temperature are you printing that PLA at? It is possible you might be keeping the filament too cool. there is a good chance you can melt it out if you try heat it up to around an ABS temp and use your hand to force it out the blockage using the filament.
