Cleaning filament drivegear

Post by In2motionDK » Tue Oct 31, 2017 7:46 pm

How can i the easiest way clean the filament drivegear on a Felix Pro 2?
What will I have to take apart to get in there?

After at batch of bad ABS that keept giving me a filament JAM, I replaced the nozzle, but I think the drivegear needs to be cleaned too.

Cheers
Peter

Dear Peter, Taking apart is not necessary. I don't have pictures at hand. but basically take the following steps.
  1. Remove filament from extruder
  2. Open flap in front
  3. Take out hot-end
  4. Look from the bottom into the extruder, you will see the toothed drive_gear.
  5. Use a tweezer to clean out the teeth. It takes a little time, but saves you the hassle of disassembly.
