Title: Loading filament into the bukobot extruder is a PIA
Post by: faber on July 26, 2017, 11:11:40 PM
I love my Bukobot, and have built 5 of them now for friends that I suggested the printer to. They all love the print quality and speed, as well as the versatility and range of filaments it will print, but all of them, as well as myself loathe loading this printer. Has anyone come up with a reliable method of loading this printer that does not include closing one eye, and trying to look down the tube to get the coil of filament in the hole just right while simultaneously praying that the gear grabs it before the filament snaps and causes you temporary insanity?
