Safe unspool printing material on FABtotum

To prevent a bloated wire jamming in the tube during the unspool, i use this procedure, a scissor or another tool is necessary to cut the wire.

  •  Be sure the feeder is engaged and rise the extruder temperature at 200°C
  • wait 2 minutes the target temperature is reached
  • push the release mechanism and extract the bowden tube from head
  • cut away the inflated wire
  • execute the unspooling procedure under the maintenance menu or unspool manually using the jog menu
