Feed Issues

Post by AndyPost » Sat Sep 11, 2021 9:24 pm

Frustrated doesn't begin to express where I am with MakerGear M2. I'm printing ABS. Every print I do in ABS starts with tediously finding just the right tightness on the feed screw to where it extrudes consistently. Tighten Jog 10mm, tighten jog 10mm etc etc. Then jog 10mm at a time to make sure it is consistent. Then I start the print and skirt prints fine, sometimes up to a 1/16th inch or so, then it stops. I have to be in the room with it and check it constantly. Then at some point it just will not extrude. Tighten, loosen, no difference.

I've tried a brand new roll of ABS. What options are there besides $$new printer?
