Do not over extrude filament when loading. As soon as the filament start protruding from the nozzle, stop. Loading any faster will
cause the filament to get caught in extruder gear.
Feed the filament immediately to the extruder, and not through the feeder tube. This reduces back tension in the filament in addition to drag,
ensuring proper feeding.
