ESUN Cleaning Filament

Postby djsloanau » 2014-Jun-Mon-06-Jun

Hi, has anyone seen or tried the new cleaning filament from ESUN
Seems like a wonderful idea ... if it works as advertised.

Has anyone used any of the ESUN filament? What were your thoughts on it?

I have been using this stuff for about a month now. Its worth the money. Never had a clogged extruder.

I use this every time I switch filaments. The only problem I have with this is it doesn't come on a roll....

I picked up eSun's cleaning filament about six months ago. I use it from time-to-time if my print quality drops. Typically, I'll first get the hotend up to temp and manually use a to clear any gunk from the nozzle, then I'll feed the cleaning filament thru the hotend. I actually prefer that it's not on a roll; I just cut half a circle's worth and use that. Usually, I feed the filament thru 50mm at a time, while raising the hotend temp from about 180C to 240C and then back down to 180C. When I've used the length of filament, things are usually flowing smoothly. On a couple of occasions with really bad clogs, I've used the cleaning filament to do a "cold pull."

Also, cacb, do you mean "170C" or 270C?

I was leery of using a drill bit as well, but the ones I use, from the link above, are actually super flexible. They're also very fragile--I've broken a couple already--so they will fail long before they ream out the nozzle.

To clear a clog, I just take one of the bits and poke it into the nozzle by hand. I do this with the nozzle still on the hotend, and it usually does the trick. With the hotend at around 200C there's no need to actually "drill" so you could use any implement that's 0.4mm in diameter.

I use a welding tip cleaner, which are designed to clean welding crud out of the small holes in gas welding tips. One of the two stores in Mooseville is a welding supply (the other's a gas station/small grocery store) so they're both cheap and easy to find - and if you can get them here they should be really easy to find (almost any hardware or big box store) in places with a higher population than a handful of houses and a moose.
