[title] Testing the Filament Drive
[* black] Cut off the very end of your filament if it is damaged or widened, then straighten the first 3" so that it is completely straight. This will keep the filament from catching internally.
[* blueblack] Squeeze the Filament Lever.
[* greenblack] Insert your filament through the opening on the underside of the Filament Lever. This will allow it to travel between the Filament Drive Gear and Bearing. Do this so that it sticks up out of the Filament Drive about 1", as seen in the first image.
[* red] Use the Manual Extrude'''Manual Extrude''' button in the Manual Control Tabtab to "extrude" 100mm of filament, as seenshown by the red arrow in the 3rd Imagethird image.

The machine should be capable of pullingable to pull filament through your sqeezedsqueezed fingers if tensioned correctly
