[title] Filament Extrusion
[* red] Once the hotend has reached 200 degrees celcius, you can begin extruding.
[* light_blue] Press extrude to extrude the filament.
-[* icon_note] Check the motion of the drive gear, it should turn ant-clockwise in order to feed filament into the hotend.
+[* violet] Check the motion of the drive gear, it should turn anti-clockwise in order to feed filament into the hotend.
+[* green] You should have a nice, straight stream of filament flowing from the nozzle.
[* icon_reminder] NOTE: When powering down from a hot Hotend, power the hotend down first and let it cool to at least 100C before completely powering off the printer - as this prevents the heat from rising up the Hotend with the absence of the fan cooling it.
[* icon_caution] In case the extruder turns the other way, clockwise, you will need to reverse the motors direction in the firmware (INVERT_E0_DIR), see step 15 for doing so.
