How to Unload Filament

    If you need to unload filament from the MK8 Stepstruder, the LCD menu on your MakerBot Replicator will walk you through the process. To run the script for unloading the filament, go to the LCD panel and select Utilities > Filament Options, then select Unload. If you have two extruders, you will have to select which extruder you wish to unload.

    Wait for the extruder to heat. Once it has heated to the set temperature, pull the filament free of the extruder.
