I know I know. I'm a horrible person. I never go on here as much as I should. I been so busy and needing to work on stuff, plus I got a 3D printer. BUUUUT the stupid thing has been nothing but problems. SOO little ol me needs to fix it. with some tutorials from the company...

Not going so well. HUGE clog in the entire extruder (print head) tried pulling it out so it won't be clogged any more, well that didn't go over so easy...  The damn filament just kept breaking off into smaller pieces leaving me frustrated and making it impossible for me to extract it... Ugh...  This is me being super nice about it.. I honestly want to throw the fucking thing outside and beat it till it isn't recognizable with a bat!

I have still attempted to some how extract the filament that is left inside. I don't know how well it is going to work since I have no clue as to how big the piece is or how far down it goes inside...  I have been trying to use my heat gun and help melt it out of the tunnel inside the print-head, some came out but not much. I don't want to over do this and some how mess it up till it won't work anymore; or correctly. My next move will probably just be to reassemble it and do the whole "install new cartridge" bit and let it heat up and see if it will work or not, if it doesn't I will have to go to a hobby store and try the whole piano wire thing and stick that up the extruder to unclog it. I have seen some people discuss this on a couple of forums on this particular 3D print machine. and it helped them a lot and worked. I am just a bit scared to mess it up honestly.

I won't do this right now though. as it is too late and I don't want to wake people up. but mostly I don't feel like raging out if it still isn't working and then I don't have any piano wire so I wouldn't be able to work and get it done like I would like.

ANYWAY.... in the meantime if you are new or a lurking reader and or just want to open a little store and sell from time to time.I’m inviting you to open a shop on Etsy. Use my link to list your first items free please click this to get started. =]

I will try to update this more, I am so absent minded and I am sorry. :-/
