I have tried different things but when I maneuver the filament so it can be pulled it sticks to the wheel.

Hello Igor,

This means that the filament is still too hot when it reaches the puller wheels, which makes the filament sticky, and it will probably also get flattened. The filament should be just cool enough so it does not stick or get flattened by the puller wheels. In this case you have several options:

- Increase the cooling percentage of the Filament Fans

- Decrease the extrusion temperature (make sure this does not affect the output/ melting process negatively)

- Decrease the extruder speed (RPM), this decreases the output which gives it more time to cool

Please let me know if this helps!

 

Best regards,

Timo
