When inserting a fresh strand of plastic into your 3Doodler Start it can take upwards of 10-15 seconds for it to feed through so don’t panic if it doesn’t appear immediately.
First try pushing your plastic. As we mentioned before, don’t be afraid to push your plastic firmly down the length of the 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 strand of plastic to push the first strand down and into the gear system.
Don’t worry, our support team is here to ensure you spend more time doodling designs than doodling with your pen. Just give us a shout here and let us know what’s going on.

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