Problem: When loading filament it extrudes very thick from nozzle.
Solution: This is normal for Polyalchemy Elixir, this filament has a unique surface tension that causes it to pull back and swell into the thick extrusion you are seeing.
Problem: When performing a “Cold Pull” the filament jams in the heat break.
Solution: It is not recommended to perform Cold Pulls with Elixir. The same surface tension that causes the thick extrusion swell can cause the filament to swell and jam in the heat break if pulled at low temps. It is recommended to instead perform “Warm Pulls” at temps above 160℃. If you feel a Cold Pull is necessary to clear debris from the nozzle it is recommended to load a regular PLA then perform the Cold Pull.
Problem: After several successful prints now I’m starting to get jams.
Solution: Like with other filaments debris/residues can accumulate in the nozzle. Perform a “Warm Pull” and reload the filament. This typically will resolve the clogging issue.
Problem: Print is all stringy but printed without stringing previously with same settings.
Solution: Check Humidity level in your Maker Space, if humidity is above 50% it can cause excessive stringing.
