Measured it was 1.76 going in I attached a pic of what it does. Have it all cleared out going to try it again. Measured the filament down the spool a ways it was all 1.75 or 1.76 but will give it a try again.

Re: M2 Questions

Have leveled bed and it's good. Really just want some S3D PLA Profiles to see if some of my settings are off. also is the V4 EXTRUDER upgrade worth while or does that just get me to a higher temp?
