Stratasys - Material Load and Unload Troubleshooting Tech Tip

If you’ve got a new team member, in your 3D Printer room asking, “How do we know if the material from our printer unloaded successfully? Also, if we can’t get the material to reload, where’s the problem?”; we’ve got a video that can answer these questions. This is a quick tech tip that specifically addresses that topic. The Stratasys FDM process was created back in 1989 and since that time, they have continued to be the leading pioneers for the advancement of materials and applications related to this process. 3D Printing is not just about whether or not you can extrude a material but more so, about the science behind material composition, proper thermal requirements, and the understanding of how plastics behave, in both a heated and cooled state. Stratasys is a world leader, regarding 3D Printing and specifically, the FDM technology, being discussed in this video. This video is intended to explain the theory behind how to troubleshoot where an issue might be at if your machine gives you a warning that it couldn’t successfully load material.
