    Hello,

    I just got my E3D hooked up to my solidoodle 2 and it keeps getting clogged with both pla and abs. The plastic melts in the threaded barrel above the heating element and hardens. I have tried printing abs at 220 and 230, and the pla was at 190.

    1. I've installed it with Lawsy's Mk5 holder which many others have used with the E3D
    2. I have the fan connected to 12v so it is always running

    Anyone have any thoughts as to what I might be doing wrong?

    Thanks ahead of time,

    Looks like this is an issue of 1.75mm filament in a 3.0mm hot end. I've PMed you over on Soliforum to get it sorted.

    Got the parts in, and everything seems to be working great now.

    Thanks Tim!
