Replacing the filament with TPU

Tell me how can I replace pla thread with tpu correctly? Tpu filament has a lower melting point. If possible, then I would be grateful to see the sequence of actions. I am an inexperienced user.

RE: Replacing the filament with TPU

Still struggling what exactly do you wanna do?

Unload the PLA and load TPU for an new print?

Then just go in the menu to "Unload filament" and select "PLA".

When unloaded, preheat for Flex-material (Menu: Preheat - select "Flex")

When nozzle is warm enough, insert the TPU into the extruder and it should load automatically.

I made the experience with flexible filament that it´s better to make a little hotter then mentioned. Had some problems that the filament get´s into the extruder and looks like "spaghetti" inside the extruder.
