Ultimaker Cleaning Filament
Ultimaker cleaning filament has been engineered to clean and unclog print cores to keep
them in optimal condition.
Print cores can become clogged with extend use. Ultimaker recommends thoroughly
cleaning print cores every few months, to keep them in optimal condition. If your Ultimaker
is extruding slowly or not all, the print core may need cleaning.
Ultimaker cleaning filament can be used to unclog any material from the Ultimaker ’s
print cores. It will unclog PLA, ABS, CPE, CPE+, Nylon, PC, TPU 95A, PP and PVA. It works in
1) With a hot pull, which melts the filament in the print core
2) With a cold pull, which removes any remaining particles to thoroughly clean the core.
Ultimaker print cores are expensive, so we recommend using cleaning filament to unclog
them and clean them periodically. If you don’t maintain your print core, it could fail. Using
the cleaning filament is simple. Detailed instructions for its use can be found here.
