Thank you for the reply. I haven't tried the "unencumbered" extrusion yet. How can I check the amperage? I had thought it might be the bolts circumference as well, but it didn't line up. I checked and cleaned it again, printed slow again. Worked relatively well but the problem came back. I've had the problem with different filament types. I haven't noticed anything major wrong with the temp. But to be sure I increased it a fair bit. The filament feeds quite easily into the bowden/hot end when I feed it by hand, I can't see an particular reason for it to be binding or anything.
Hey everyone, I've had a ghost in my machine for a while now. It's frustrated me to the point of shelving the thing a few times. I recently have been energized and decided to get rid of whatever problems it's having. The issue is underextrusion. It seemed inconsistent, but upon some closer inspection, I have noticed small amounts of grinding happening at regular intervals. At roughly 45mm intervals along the filament that's been fed by the extruder and is still in the bowden. It's not EVERY 45mm, and prints seem to work fine for a while and then the issue will present itself every 45mm.
