When inserting a fresh strand of plastic into your 3Doodler Start, it can take 10-15 seconds for it to extrude out of the nozzle. Thanks for your patience!
First try pushing your plastic into the feed port. As we mentioned before, don’t be afraid to push your plastic firmly into pen to ensure it engages with the gears and gets gripped properly. If the strand of plastic inside the pen is not long enough for you to grip or push by hand, you can also use another plastic strand to push the first strand down and into the gear system.
Don’t worry, our support team is here to ensure you’re Doodling as soon as possible. Please reach out to us here and let us know what’s going on.

Keep your plastic strands clean. Use clippers or scissors to snip the melted plastic ends to avoid any unnecessary jams in your 3Doodler pen.
With your 3Doodler pen, you can weld plastic to plastic. While extruding, simply touch the tip of the 3Doodler Start pen to each of the pieces that you wish to join together.
