Unloading Filament

    If you need to unload filament, the LCD menu will walk you through the process. To run the script for unloading the filament from either extruder, go to the LCD panel and select Utilities > Filament Options, then select Unload for the nozzle 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.

    If you have difficulty unloading filament, be sure to press down on the extruder lever to relieve tension on the filament that has not unloaded. While pushing the lever, attempt to pull the filament free from the extruder.

    The lever pictured here is from a Replicator 2, your Replicator 2X will have one lever for the left and one for the right.
