Unloading Filament

    How to Unload Filament

    On the LCD panel, select  Utilities > Change Filament > Unload. Wait for the extruder to heat to the set temperature.

    If the extruder on your MakerBot Replicator 2 has an extruder arm, push down on the extruder arm and continue to hold it down as you gently pull the filament out of the extruder. Then release the extruder arm. If the extruder on your MakerBot Replicator 2 does not have an extruder arm, just pull the filament free of the extruder.
