Once the hotend has reached 200 degrees celcius, you can begin extruding.

Press extrude to extrude the filament.

Check the motion of the drive gear, it should turn anti-clockwise in order to feed filament into the hotend.

You should have a nice, straight stream of filament flowing from the nozzle.

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.

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.
