I just finished building my Bukobot, have ran through the test flight and have done the initial test print (bed perimeter and 3 cylinders, etc). I have been using the sample PLA filament that came with the kit, but now I want to switch to another color filament.
I found a youtube video that describes the process as such: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKhdUj3f0UI
- Loosen/remove the filament tension
- Heat the extruder to about 100d
- When the temp gets to about 80 degrees pull the filament out
I tried it, but the amount of force that I used didn't work and I was reluctant to use more in fear of damaging it.
On the Bukobot, what's is the proper way to extract the filament and install another?
If this is documented someplace, a link would be greatly appreciated.
