Re: General G-Code Question 4 the Experts

If you start to pre heat an m2 that has the retraction of 10 or 20 at print end it usually takes at least ten minutes , but usually more for my setup. At least with my machine if I wipe it after the machine heats it is all good. It has burned out the filament during pre heat.

Re: Stops at random points in the middle of the print

It is an easy thing to check. And yes I had one flake out and it would either lock up , or just start printing in random directions out of nowhere.
