Please read this:

Switching back to PLA or another material is usually done by ‘purging’ the hot-end of _XT material. Heating up the hot-end to 240 C and feeding through new material will purge the hotend of _XT. Another method would be to insert filament manually in the hotend (while hot) and retracting it immediately. _XT will stick to the end of the filament which can then be cut off. Repeat this several times to completely clean out the hot-end.  Ensure hot end is completely purged prior to starting prints with the new material.

And what is ColorFabb_XT

The ColorFabb_XT range is a special amorphous copolyester with a Tg of 75 C. So you can use this up to 70 degrees C. Toughness is high. Elongation at break = 50% (yield). In comparison, the normal PLA / PHA range has a elongation of approx 10% at yield, but has very good layer adhesion properties and is a bit softer compared to PLA. Both qualities have minimum warping tendencies.

In addition to this, ColorFabb XT is very transparent and odourless compared to ABS.
