Re: How to fix this

Thank you for all your help. I don't know if I did it quite the way you intended but I got this figured out and now everything is running beautifully. Weirdly one of the things that turned out to be an issue is there are tangles in this particular spell of plastic. The plastic just gets cinched caus...

Re: How to fix this

My nozzle is .5 width. I have some calipers but I ordered the ones you linked as I've been on the hunt for a better pair.

Re: How to fix this

Everything I wrote is not your problem :-) Not being there to see it happening hard to. Looks like inconsistent extrusion, slicer issue if you are just starting out, Z offset issue too close to bed, clogged nozzle, too thin a layer.. PETG is not something you use when printing .2mm layer.. PETG wor...

Re: Filament stuck in the printed extruder motor cover

Got the part completely clear. I suspect there was a piece of plastic stuck in there from the first jam and that is what was causing the problem. Just in case I pushed a bit more cleaning filament, did another cold pull and only got a spec of back. So far the next print seems to be going much better...

Re: Filament stuck in the printed extruder motor cover

As an update I got part of the PETG out of this piece but its currently blocked in the middle of that bottom tube. I can not see the blockage but I also can't feed filament through that piece when its off the machine. I used a modeling pin to push part of it out, I'm goign to assume if I have a long...

Filament stuck in the printed extruder motor cover

Hi all, For background I was printing all PLA. I switched nozzles and started printing PETG. Most of those prints were a little stringy with occasional blobbing but otherwise solid prints. I was printing Amazon Basic Orange PETG. When the roll finished in the middle of a print I tried to splice in a...

Re: M2 just stops printing/moving

I don't think the nozzle is hot Replace the hot end thermistor. The other possibility is an almost-broken wire in the cable from the thermistor to the RAMBo board, due to all the flexing, but replacing the thermistor is where you start. Somewhere in the torrent of printer messages, you'll likely fi...
