I live in Tasmania, Australia.
I have used two Flashforge Adventurer 3 printers recently. Both printers began magnificently, printing anything I asked of them. But after going through about 3 reels of filament the printing degrades. The filament will not feed. Apparently the nozzle is getting clogged. I have undertaken the unclogging procedure repeatedly, over many days. Most prints begin well, but the extruder gets clogged quickly. Both printers reached a point where they cannot complete a print without this issue. The supplied un-clogging tools are not adequate. Advice on what to do about this has been given which if followed could damage the printer. If the printer was not a proprietary product I might have tried it.
With the first printer I used non-Flashforge filament. One roll was a gift from the shop I purchased it from.
Throughout the use of the second printer I have used only brand new Flashforge filament.
Rather than risk damage to the printer I elected to return the first printer to it’s place of purchase. I am at the point where I have no confidence in this product and will return the second one with the expectation of receiving a full refund.
