Taulmann T-Glase filament jamming

Post by olce »

Hi

I've run into the following problem on my felix 3

My first attempt to print something with the Taulmann T-Glase is not going very well.

I'm using the standard settings in Repetier (T-Glase preset which came with the install)

I feed the beginning of the filament through manually, to make sure it flow through easy.
I start my print, and it is printing ok, until about 30 to 50 minutes in, then it seems the filament stopped feeding.

I tried this a couple of times (including again the manual feeding)

after about 4 prints failing like this, now I even cannot manually feed it anymore, it just jams.

to make sure it is not blocked in the nozzle, hotend or inbetween, I took a piece of 20cm normal PLA filament to feed it through manually, and that works. the PLA piece feeds through smoothly, no jams, no slowdown, smooth feed, all 20 cm

so giving PLA goes fine, and prints with t-glass each started ok, to jam later while printing, I assume it has to do with the t-glase filament itself?

anyone has similar experiences?

Thanks

I now seem to have the same issue with other PLA filament.

anyone any ideas?
