Filament Maker maintenance: Replacing the puller wheels

After using the puller wheel for a while it is possible that the wheel becomes damaged. This could have an effect on the extrusion results therefore it is time to change the wheel.

When should you replace the puller wheel?

The rubber wheel can be damaged by thermal and mechanical constraints:

- the filament getting stuck during the pulling/spooling process can cause a lot of friction, especially when you can even notice the puller wheel slipping (it scrapes away material)

- excessively hot filament can degrade the polyurethane. In normal cases, the filament is cooled down enough to not degrade the polyurethane.

The wheel should be changed when visibly grooved or rough.
