Maker Clean Stix
Cleaning Filament Sticks for your 3D Printer Extruder
MakerGeeks.com has been working on a solid way to clean your 3D printer extruder for a while now and finally our chemical partner has figured out the perfect blend and we are VERY pleased to bring you Maker Clean 3D Filament! The science behind this amazing composite is pretty tricky but the short of it is - this filament will extrude from 170c all the way up to 280c+ without degrading or damaging the extruder or feed-throat in the hot-end.
So, no matter what you ran through your 3D printer last with Maker Clean you can fully clean your hot-end and nozzle from any and all residual plastic that might be left over. This allows your next 3D print to get started with a fresh and clean nozzle and barrel which greatly increases your success rate and the overall quality and strength of your 3D print.
Maker Clean Stix are made right here at the MakerGeeks.com Springfield, MO plant in convenient 12" sticks, no unwieldy loose wrap coils to deal with and store! Each 12" stick is good for between 2 & 3 clean-outs.
Maker Clean Stix are easy to use as well...
- when you are ready to clean your extruder just pre-heat your extruder to whatever the hottest filament was you have used in the past
- load the Maker Clean Stix as you would any other filament
- manually extrude the Maker Clean until you see the extruded material run white and clean
- have a cup of coffee and get ready to 3D print something awesome!
That's it... nice and easy!!
