im trying to set up the 3Dchameleon mk3 with an Ender 3 S1 Plus, but whenever the extruder attempts to remove the filament, it jams. when opening the extruder, i find a massive blob stuck to the end of the filament. any reccomendations?

A massive blob is what the tip shaping part of our code is trying to eliminate... The idea is that it should be allowed to cool in a constricted area so it can't swell up like that.
There are two basic ways to deal with it:
1) Follow our tip shaping FAQ #10.
2) Implement the 3DClippy tip cutter.
1 required you tune the temperature and motion of the tip shaping to force it into the proper bullet like tips.
2 simply skips that problem altogether and leaves the tip in the hot end but requires some additional hardware.
I don't have the design for the Sprite, but I do for the similar Sovol SV-06 extruder, so I think it would be easy to adapt.
Search Printables for 3DClippy for the examples.
