Stratasys F Series Purge Trick

If you’ve got a new team member asking, “My material seems to be stuck in the head, how can I help to purge it out?”; we’ve got a video that can answer that question. This is a quick “how to” reference for the trick behind helping your F Series head purge out a possible blocked tip. The Stratasys FDM process was created back in 1989 and since that time, they’ve 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 demonstrate a possible solution for clearing a plugged tip but is by no means a “fix all” for this or any other issue related to it.
