Have tried different filament. I think somehow the bowden tube is messed up, so i'm replacing that. I did contact support, and we've tried a few things - and none of them helped much. So the end of the bowden tube might be a little worn and allowing filament to backflow and clog and stop extruding.

RE: Failed prints every single time
Failed prints every single time
I'm having a hard time liking this Pulse XE printer. It's new, and i've only ever gotten one single solitary successful print out of it. Right out of the box the print quality was awful. Changing to a brass nozzle from the ruby nozzle helped a little, but not much. Now, every single print stops extruding from the nozzle about half an hour into the print. The cooling fan is on. Print fan on. Changed nozzles. Changed heat break. Changed filament. Changed models. Changed bowden tube. Changed to different clamps for each end of the bowden tube. I'm at my wits end with this thing. I had a sour experience with Craftbot and this was my replacement. Printing from 200 to 210 and same thing. I will see a failed print, remove the bowden and heat up to 240 and attempt to clean out with a needle. There's not even a clog i can detect. Then I'll re feed in filament and the bowden tube and extrude a little and it will extrude onto the bed, so it's not clogged. so then i reset, and resend the print and half an hour later, it's ghost printing, doing the motions but no filament is being extruding. I hear the clicking of the bond tech trying to force filament thru.
RE: Pulse XE awful print quality
The temp was 210, bed temp 60. It was set to .20 high quality in matter control. It was basic craftbot white pla I had leftover. New, sealed, first use. I have changed filaments and once I have a successful print I'll compare the two. Tomorrow my e3d brass nozzles come in from amazon so I'll change nozzles and see if that helps as well as printing a sample model made elsewhere.
RE: Help! filament broke off in Bowden tube near extruder
So I did manage to figure out how to non destructively remote the Bowden tube from the hot end. It was clogged, verified that the nozzle was clean. I couldn't get anything in there to push it all out, so I had a cleaning needle I'd have to insert from the top, let it sit and pull it out and clean off filament a bit at a time until I got a large ball out.
Help! filament broke off in Bowden tube near extruder
how do I remove the Bowden tube? I got the blue c clip off but I can't pull the tube out.
Pulse XE awful print quality
I have the pulse xe I just received, with the ruby nozzle. When printing in PLA the quality of the print is awful. It seriously is the worst I've ever seen. Is this a drawback of this nozzle? I didn't get any brass nozzles in the box to change it out with and test the difference.
