Using the BCN TPU Filament I get better results in decreasing the Flow rate from 115% to 100%. Before that I had often problems with clogging.

What's also necessary, is to decrease the "Retraction Distance" from 8 (default) to 1. Using 8 leads to clogging after short time on my prints.

@rango Do not forget to do a cleanup process if you have use other material before. Its append to me 🤣 but you right basic profile need real good improvement to work correctly whiteout this type of problem. I am pretty shure that you keep your filament safe from humidity 😉

Absolutely right, coming from PETG or PLA to TPU it's good to clean the hotend with Nylon.

What I also do is to Purge right before the print and let the filament run out the nozzle, so the flow is already there when the print starts.
