Any luck using copperFill in MK3?

Hi all,

I'm new to 3D printing but got the MK3 and went through the assembly. Printing has been going smoothly while using standard PLA but I recently saw the colorfabb PLA and bought some of the CopperFill and SteelFill. The loading of the filament goes smoothly but it seems that as soon as the print actually starts the extruder is getting jammed.

Has anyone been able to print with these materials and what adjustments did you need to make in order for it to go smoothly?

Thank you.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Robert,

composite materials = PLA base with some added materials like bronze or wood often require bigger nozzle, the stock 0.4 mm isn't big enough.
