Cleaning filament?

  • Hi,

    I have read there is a kind of filament for clean Nozzles.

    Someone have tested and can give feedback? Brand?

  • I've got some esun cleaning filament not really sure what it's meant to do that using any other filament can't do for you. You can run some through your hotend but I don't see how it cleans it.

    I'll send it you if you want see if you can get something out of it.

  • I have some too that anyone is welcome to have. For me, cold pulls with nylon works the best period.

  • The idea about cleaning filament as far as I understand it, is that it has a very wide temperature range. Therefore if you go from a low temp to a high temp filament or vice-versa, you can use the cleaning filament to purge residue from the previous filament, without the risc of it getting burned or clogs due a too low purge temp. I have some laying around that I use mainly for hot-end testing purposes when I expect a partial clog or anything.

  • Thanks, that makes sense, I just set temp to higher of the two purge it a little, then lower temp and purge again. But now I know.
