Unclogging the 3D45 Extruder
This video will walk you through the steps to properly clear out a clogged extruder. Since the reason the extruder may be clogged is not yet clear, the video will provide a several options to help you clear out the clog. You can also download the PDF instructions here.

Nozzle Gap Calibration
Having the correct nozzle gap is vital to achieving successful prints. The nozzle gap, also referred to as Z-Gap, is the distance of the nozzle to the build platform when the first layer is being printed. It is important to ensure that the first layer sticks well to the build platform, therefore, the nozzle gap needs to be ideal. Too large of a nozzle gap may lead to a not well adhered first layer, leading to object shifting, and a too small nozzle gap may lead to a non-visible first layer, possibly leading to clogging issues.
