I used to have a lot of trouble with clogging nozzles. It turned out to be one of two reasons. The first was too low of temperature. I now print my PLA parts at 237 C. This helped a lot. No more clogged nozzles. And a lot better layer adhesion. Very important for 3Dlab prints. Second was related to when the fan turns on for the print. If the fan turns on to late the filament gets to soft and does not push through the nozzle correctly. It builds up and clogs. You have to warm up the hot end to pull it out. Cut off the thick end and restart.
