How to manually unload filament (BCN3D Epsilon)

Before trying to unload the filament manually, make sure that it can't be unloaded following the standard procedure:

If the automatic filament unloading has failed, it can be due to the extruder grinding the filament. In order to unload the filament you can follow these steps:

Go to the temperature menu and heat the hotend to the printing temperature of the loaded filament. Once it has reached the target temperature, purge the extruder by clicking on the arrow.
