Re: Advice for cleaning V4 extruder

I switch back and forth between PLA, PETG, EPA (Nylon) and ABS all the time. Never had a clog.. I use Esun Cleaning filament before each change and every so often even when staying with one material.

Re: Expiration Date on Filament?

Thanks, I had kind of figured that to be the case ..But to tell the truth, I have not googled the question yet. Since the stuff we not really vacuum sealed I did't think it was hydroscopic but probably should goggle it now :)

Re: Expiration Date on Filament?
